Little Dragon, Helado Negro, Nina Simone, James Blake, pretty much anything played on KCRW (big MBE fan)
My Class Style:
I aim for all of my classes to feel as accessible and welcoming as possible; always full of options. As a teacher I am gentle, nurturing and friendly, but I also appreciate a little spice. Gentle doesn't necessarily mean easy. My hope is always that people leave my class feeling a bit more embodied.
I am in awe of the human body and all that it is capable of, especially creating life and its ability to heal. I am a longtime birth nerd. Aside from being a yoga teacher, I am also a birth and postpartum doula, childbirth educator, and guide of various support groups for pregnant people and new parents. I am also a mama myself to two wild toddlers, River and Mylo. Some things I love: music, connecting with others, moving my body, being outside, creating in the kitchen, eating delicious food, and being with my family (which also includes my partner, a cat and a dog). I am currently an herbalist student and love learning more about our plant allies. To me, food and movement are the ultimate medicine.
A trained dancer in high school and college, I first came to yoga to stretch out and de-stress. Over time my relationship with yoga deepened and it became a backbone of sorts for me; so much of who I am today can be traced back to my yoga practice. I completed my first training at Yoga Blend in 2012 and since then I have completed a number of trainings and courses including pre and postnatal, kids, restorative, yoga nidra, and trauma informed. I've also spent time studying yoga philosophy, sequencing, anatomy and the chakras. Although these days I mostly teach classes specifically for pregnancy, postpartum and families, I love it all and enjoy subbing other classes when I can.
