Yoga has weaved it’s way in and out of my life since I was 5 years old. My father taught me yoga! He learned yoga while living in France during the 1950s. I loved the inversions and often went into shoulder stands, using it as cross training for my favorite sport, synchronized swimming. Flash forward to 2016 and that is when I started teaching yoga to elementary school children. I was working as a PE instructor for Irvine Unified School District and noticed that the children could use some centering. I took a Level 1 instructor course from YogaFit and have been teaching yoga ever since. I currently teach flow yoga at the Orange County YMCA, pre-natal at Mohm Yoga in Mission Viejo, teen yoga at the SOY Center, senior chair yoga at Jamboree Housing and serve as a sub for Triad Yoga and Pilates. In 2018 I completed my 200 hour training with YogaFit Worldwide Training Systems and am a 200 RYT (registered yoga teacher) with Yoga Alliance. It has been a pleasure teaching people of all ages and backgrounds while on a barefoot yogic path.
