“My goal is to enhance the quality of life for every student that enters a class. Yoga gave me so much personal power and confidence so I like to teach yoga movement and breath to be conscious and embodied, bringing the practice closer to your own experience. I encourage students to not underestimate themselves, develop a positive mind and body and learn presence from within their own practice”
