My first experience with yoga was in 2007. At the time I was living in San Diego, CA and a good friend of mine was a "yogi". She always asked me to go with her to Bikrim which I found out later was the hottest, smelliest yoga everrr BUT, I was totally hooked! Since returning to Pittsburgh in 2008, I’ve tried several styles of yoga and I strongly believe that all forms of yoga are healing. I have really found my niche with Power Vinyassa Yoga though! What they say about yoga...it's all true! I have experienced many (too many to count) positive changes in myself, spiritually, mentally and physically. With all these discoveries, came a deep desire to share the blessings of yoga with others. That’s when I decided to obtain a certification to teach yoga through Karen & Sean Conley at Amazing Yoga in 2011 and on to a further certification through Dominique Ponko at Yoga Flow in 2012. Although I am a teacher, I will always be student as I am constantly learning from everyone around me.
By way of education, I attended Duquesne University and have a BA in Media Communications. I also have been taking acting classes:) I perform with a professional Polynesian dance group, love to spend time with my family and friends, travel, workout, eat, pray and meditate and I really just enjoy all that life has to offer. Oh and I love people!
My sweet little family currently resides in Oakmont. My amazing husband Jacques, beautiful son Melaku and you've probably seen us out running with our big white dog, Isis.
