My yoga journey began in 2002 as a combination of my thirst for knowledge and my love of movement. At first, my physical practice was only for exercise (or so I thought) while the philosophy of yoga was relegated to my academic studies. I continued to deepen my understandings of yoga, both on and off the mat, by teaching yoga in studios while studying for my doctorate degree at The University of Denver. I completed my PhD in Yoga Studies in 2015 and intend to use my knowledge of the academics and experience of the physical practice to teach the inherent and necessary connections that yoga makes between the body, the mind and the soul.
