What do you do best?

I teach people to hold themselves accountable. I challenge my students to exceed their own expectations, to push their own boundaries, to be the best versions of themselves.

What makes you the best?

I always put learning first. Being a student comes before being a teacher. I try to pluck information from all different types of disciplines and guides and weave it into a practice that feels thoughtful and well-rounded.

What are your aspirations?

I’ve always wanted to live on a little farm where I can rescue animals and grow my own produce. But professionally, my path is teaching other teachers, so I’ve got to stay connected in an urban environment for now. Eventually, I’d like to lead teacher trainings all over the world.

Biggest Success?

Moving to LA and not getting swallowed alive! I took a big leap of faith as a young teacher and transitioned from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, and the rewards are constantly compounding.

Most Challenging Moment?

Honestly, my entire life was a struggle before I found yoga. I butted heads with myself, with reality, and with the world. I pushed good people away so they couldn’t reject me, and clung to toxic people and situations. Since my first teacher training, every day has been in service of changing my story and helping other people change theirs.


Keep the yoga in it. My mentor Joan said that to us over and over during my first TT and it still resonates with me. It’s easy to get caught up in the music and the flow and the alignment cues, but I try not to lose sight of the stillness we’re seeking from the yoga practice. Sometimes the biggest challenge is just to be quiet.

Favorite People/Role Models?

My teachers, Schuyler and Joan, and all of my incredibly talented colleagues. My parents.

Favorite Places/Destinations?

I love camping. I’m obsessed with Joshua Tree, Big Sur, and Point Reyes. I grew up in Northern California and I love going back to visit Shasta County.

Favorite Products/Objects?

Beyond Yoga spacedye leggings (and all of their other incredibly soft clothing). Liforme yoga mats. Health-Ade ginger-lemon kombucha. Organic almond and coconut oil (depending on the season) for my skin. Sweet orange essential oil. Cold-brew coffee.

Current Passions?

Bouldering! I started climbing about six months ago and am absolutely hooked. I’ve also been exploring acro yoga and loving that as well.
