Hi MaYogis! My personal journey with yoga began in 1999, when I was blessed by a serendipitous encounter with an older yogi, who taught me how my body and breath were my entry points to freedom. Fast forward ten years and I found myself studying Hatha yoga in a small ashram on the Southern tip of India, where I completed my first 200hrs. I began my prenatal training immediately afterwards and instantly felt at home in my work. I am now devoted to supporting mamas on their birth journey from conception through motherhood. It is such a joy and honor to be here with you, part of the MaYoga family, co-creating a space of healing, strength and community.
Before MaYoga, my passion for the healing arts took me all over the world, studying with different yogic masters in Fiji, India, Italy, Ireland, and Peru, as well as with a special yoga therapist in Hawaii. In 2017 I furthered my study of the intersection between science and spirituality and received my Masters degree in clinical psychology where I focused on the transformative power of movement through both eastern and western modalities of healing. I am also a certified Holistic Health Coach, Spiritual Healer and Birth Doula.
As each day is different, new and often unpredictable, my little tip is the practice of radical trust in the process. You can practice sourcing this trust by finding a mantra (a word or phrase to repeat) that reminds you that your body knows the way. When we attach this mantra to our breath, we let our nervous system relax enough for our body’s wisdom to come online and guide the way forward. I can’t wait to have you in class and move into your most intuitive empowered Self. See you on the mat!
