FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I offer a first time package that includes 3 sessions. By the end of the 3 sessions we discuss what the next step for their goals are and build a custom offering around that. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

As mentioned in bio, I am an E-RYT 500, with over 1000 hours of specialized yoga training and offer wokrshops and experiences to groups in SF, individuals in SF and the North Bay (as far as Petaluma, where I lived since 2009 before relocating to SF). 

I offer continuing education programs for yoga teachers through Yoga Tree SF and Yoga Alliance. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I value transparency and all prices are published on my website.


How did you get started teaching?

By waking up one morning to go to my 9-5 job and realized I am not living what I am meant to do. I started with my own self inqury and followed my heart toward what made me feel good. Built my business from there.


What types of students have you worked with?

Everyone from 3 years old to 80+. We all can benefit from being present in our bodies and moving at the pace of nature. All the better in nature!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Exploring the wildflowers in my public yoga hikes offered in Sonoma County 2 days ago. I never stop learning and am inspired by the plants and the people that are in my presence everyday.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Ask which level of yoga accreditation have they received from Yoga Alliance (the only governing body currently set to help guide students to a standard of teaching). 

Making sure that not only do they have experience, but a consistent daily practice, mentor/teacher, and wisdom beyond the intellectual poses/books.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Why are they looking to yoga to help them? 

Finding a teacher that knows that you are your own healer and that the answers to improved health and wellness is within you.
