About this pro

Hatha flow is a traditional lineage of yoga that focuses on alignment, form, breathing techniques, and small meditation.  I generally will lean to holistic approaches for all forms of ailments and believe that yoga is a full body, mind, and spirit form of healing.  

I also continue my education regularly in order to provide the best teaching I can offer.

I love yoga as it has shaped my life in ways I cannot even begin to describe.  Your yoga is what makes it the most enjoyable for me.  Finding what yoga does for you and the yoga you like to practice is so unique for everyone and every body out there.  E Komo Mai means "enter" or "come inside".  I enjoy my work because I am able to invite you into my space in order to offer you the ability to "enter" or "come inside" your space with no judgement.  I love guiding people to find themselves.

FAQs


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

If it is a private session, I will ask some questions and find out what they are looking for out of the practice.  I will typically build a practice that helps them to focus on a certain posture or strength spot they want.  

In a class, I will likely allow the student to focus on what is happening and just keep and eye out so that they are comfortable in class.  

My main focus is to build a relationship with the student before moving into an actual "process".  We both want to be able to be comfortable with each other as yoga is a pretty vulnerable practice.


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

I am a registered yoga alliance 200 hour teacher. (RYT 200)

I have been teaching education on and off for about 15 years and have recently focused mainly on yoga teaching in the last 2 months.

I am currently enrolled in post-natal yoga training so that I can add this to my credentials of education.

I am currently enrolled in my 500 hour teacher training.

I am currently being certified for Hot Hula Fitness (coming soon to my classes offered!)

I have been trained in Nutrition through CSULB and Herbalife, a supplement company.

I have a CBEST from California in order to teach education.


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

I do.  My pricing is listed on my website and my online schedule.  Please follow the links above to check it out.  If you have concerns or questions regarding my pricing, please reach out.  Although this is my main source of income, I will try to do my best to make yoga accessible to all!


How did you get started teaching?

I got started teaching education by tutoring when I was young.  After that, I continued teaching through college as substitutes in yoga classes and other fitness classes.  Over the years, I have homeschooled and tutored while still offering life coaching and nutrition counseling.  I finally made the full plunge this year to do a 200 hour intensive training (in 30 days) in order to offer my love of yoga to the world.


What types of students have you worked with?

I'm not sure how to answer this.  Types of students?  I have had the pleasure of working with all students of different educations, body types, strengths, and concerns.  Please email me for further discussion if you have more in depth questions.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Through the devastation of Hurricane Harvey on our coast, the people coming together despite the political chaos our country is in.  No race, no religion, no sex, no color.  Just humans helping humans (and animals).  It is overwhelming to see the heartache, but it is just as emotional to see the volunteers.  Over the last week, I have seen so many people just put work to the side, load up their trucks, hook up their boats, and drive the 4 hours down to go and give their time, sleep, and resources to those that are needing it.  That is beautiful.
