I take ideas from my Iyengar foundation and blend my own style of Vinyasa Flow. I try to relate as authentically as I can my experience with Yoga, and help others to connect to that deeper experience
I was introduced to yoga my freshman year of college as a requirement for my Psychology class; I attended a lecture given by a true health enthusiast. You might not remember this ad campaign, but he was the guy from the Chiquita banana commercials that's jumping hurdles. He stressed the importance of stretching and going upside down on a daily basis, something that wasn't a part of my routine. The man was 80-years old and radiated health…he could still jump hurdles and run a 6-minute mile. He had students from the class come punch him in the abs while he was flexing to demonstrate how strong he was. Needless to say, it was entertaining yet also inspiring.
At the same time I was living a toxic lifestyle and rationalized yoga as a means to a healthier life. I was trying to find a balance between two completely different lifestyles. A friend encouraged me to start teaching a yoga class to our friends as a way to earn money over summer break. As I became more dedicated to my teachings and practice; a deeper self awareness of my character began to emerge. An eye-opening experience, I began to realize the way I was living was "missing the mark". There was a much more rewarding path unfolding if I stayed dedicated to my practice and my truth.
At the age of 23, after teaching for 3 years; I began to realize I was ready for a powerful change in my life. I made a decision to put my trust in a higher power and focus my energy into the study, practice, and teaching of yoga. I wanted to help others; it was the reason I was initially attracted to yoga. I had to learn to help myself before I could help someone else.
"We cannot transmit something we don't have"
After graduating San Diego State University, I started training with Megan Bello from Orange County Yoga Studio. Soon after, I began an apprenticeship with Anna Delury while regularly taking workshops with Manouso Manos. The opportunity to study with such knowledgeable Iyengar teachers was priceless and eye-opening. The time I spent with these teachers gave me a new way of looking at the practice that I could wrap my head around. The Iyengar method made sense to me; it was concrete, focused and effective. I use alignment as a tool in my class to move the focus inward. In theory, by aligning the body, we create a more stable foundation for prana to flow; moving us closer to self realization.
