Teaching style: I think of yoga as a tool to nurture your inner nature. I use a lot of metaphors to encourage us to look at the body as a place to explore and embody. I love alignment cues, a good set of breath work and an awesome playlist.
Yoga tunes: I like to mix it up, but you can count on some sort of Deep House. Currently loving Yotto, Tinlicker and Adriatique plus a little Etta James, H.E.R. and Leon Bridges.
Fave fruit: Figs
Interests outside of yoga: Cooking big breakfasts, charcuterie boards and wine, music festivals, self help books, traveling and thrift shopping.
Neighborhood: La Jolla
Fave place in San Diego: I have so many favorites but I'm never disappointed by the run path between La Jolla Shores and the Cove (even when it smells like seals).
Special Talent: Abnormally good luck shopping on Craigslist.
Favorite book: The Life of Pai and Staying Healthy with the Seasons.
Best thing yoga has taught you: We are embodied and dimensional beings. Emotions, attitudes, perspectives, preferences are manifested in the body. When we occupy our centers, we are capable of spherical radiance.

Quotes: So into quotes I keep a story feature on my IG. Current fave: The universe only has 3 answers. 1. Yes 2. Not right now 3. I have something better for you.
