I began practicing yoga in 2009 while living in Cambridge, England. The practice turned into daily respite and hasn't let go of me since.

I grew up in Mill Valley, California.  I have always spent time in the studio; before yoga, I danced at Marin Peninsula Ballet, Roco, Marin Academy, Foster Dance, and Bodywork Company Dance Studios.  At Northwestern University, I co-founded Fusion Dance Company, where I started teaching public dance classes.  

After yoga grabbed hold, I began studying vinyasa and Ashtanga.  I completed my teacher training with Stephanie Snyder, and also study with Magnolia Zuniga and Deborah Burkman.
