In an elevator I'd say, I'm a yoga teacher, life design coach and writer. My friends would say I am big-hearted and have a tendency to repeat my jokes if you didn't laugh the first time.
I’m a lover of avocados, French press and hip hop. And really, I’m an Iowa girl living blissfully in Venice Beach with my husband and our lovable English bulldog Rosy. I'm living a life more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed up. Dreams are great and who doesn't love a good one? But, you gotta put the sweat, love and passion equity into it. That's where I come in. I've got your back.
Whether it’s through a sweaty yoga practice, a gratitude meditation or a conversation over coffee about big goals, my mission is to lead people toward their bliss. Sustainable, fulfilling, ohmygodilovemylife bliss.
During my journey of teaching yoga for almost a decade, I’ve traveled the world teaching professional cyclists yoga, I've shared a stage with Michael Franti and I've even designed custom yoga programs for rehabilitation centers, homeless shelters and the Down Syndrome Association of Los Angeles. I truly believe in the power of connection - vulnerable, raw and real - and I believe our most powerful and potent practice happens off of our yoga mat.
I am also the co-founder of Rock Your Bliss, a personal development and yoga movement for the mind and body. Goal coach Jacki Carr and I lead retreats and workshops around the world teaching people how to craft an inspired life of their design. Our methodology of "blisscrafting" incorporates yoga philosophy, igolu practices, coaching principles, chakra alignment, values exploration, writing and karaoke. We've taught at Wanderlust Festival, Bloom Festival and Darling Magazine's Create and Cultivate Events.
I was named one of the top yoga teachers in Los Angeles in 2013. I’ve been featured in Manduka, lululemon athletica, Teeki, BeLOVE and Tiny Devotions ad campaigns and my classes and retreats have been featured in Yoga Journal, National Geographic Traveler, LA Yoga, Origin Magazine and Mantra Magazine.
