I discovered yoga during my sophomore year in high school – a particularly difficult time
for me. However, it was my yoga practice and community that helped me persevere and find my authentic way of being. My journey of self-discovery continued as I traveled to Bali and Thailand in the summer of 2012 to expand my understanding of the history and philosophy of yoga. Inspired and confident that yoga would be my way of life, I soon sought another opportunity to grow. At 18 and as the youngest of nearly 200 trainees from all over the world, I travelled to the Catskill Mountains in NY for an intensive week of Level 1 Baptiste yoga training. Within this powerful community, I cultivated friendships for a lifetime and developed a constant thirst for deepening my physical, educational, and spiritual practice of life.
In 2014, I completed my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Sid Yoga in Towson, MD, Baptiste Art of Assisting in Lancaster, PA, and Baptiste Level 2 in Sedona, AZ. These trainings offered me an unprecedented opportunity for self-exploration and growth, and I was inspired to stand in my presence and power. As a teacher, I bring community and compassion into every class. I empower my students to let go of fear, and to act from a place of self-love and unconditional compassion for others.
I grew up in the D.C. area and studied Justice and Peace at Georgetown University. I served the greater D.C. community as a volunteer and intern for many non-profits and taught yoga to underserved children through the organization, YoKid. In May of 2016, I moved to Salt Lake City to pursue a job at the International Rescue Committee. Within the first month of living in SLC, I discovered Salt Lake Power Yoga and have been booked since. The SLPY Tribe has become my Utah family, and I am grateful every day to be able to experience and share what I love with this inspiring and welcoming community.
In addition to living and breathing yoga, I love to travel with my family and friends, hike and ski in the mountains, cook delicious vegan dishes, listen to live music, and dance!
I look forwarding to seeing you on your mat soon!
