About the Instructor:

I am a Bhakti infused Yoga teacher and Reiki Master.

In my practice, I draw upon my time living in a Vedic Ashram. There, I lead daily Vedic Fire Ceremonies at sunrise and studied ancient Vedic scriptures, rituals and Yogic philosophy in depth.

I am a 500 E-RYT Yoga teacher, teaching since 2010. In my classes, I organically create dynamic fluid yoga sequences infused with yogic spirituality, empowering students to break patterns of rigidity and remove emotional and physical blockages. I love to weave Ayurveda, Astrology & Yogic philosophy into my classes for a holistic experience and deeper intention setting.

I am an Usui Reiki Master and Shamanic Reiki practitioner. My Reiki practice has been part of my daily self care since 2009.

I have a degree as a Clinical Ayurveda Practitioner and spent 4 years studying Ayurveda, Yoga & Vedanta in a traditional Vedic Gurukulm with Acharya Shunya.

I began studying Yoga, Ayurveda & Reiki over 13 years ago when I was healing and doing shadow work after an extremely violent & traumatic period in my life that was the source of severe PTSD and a dark depression. Because these holistic traditions have been the catalyst for healing, introspection and growth for me, I am dedicated to studying for life and happy to share what I have learned with you!
