Yoga is about you. It’s an intimate internal exploration that has no finish line. That’s what makes it fascinating for a lifetime.

My teaching style has developed over 20 years and been influenced by a few different yoga styles and many outstanding teachers.  The Forrest Yoga system with it creator Ana Forrest have been inspiring me since 2004. When I took my first class with Ana I knew right away that my yoga practice was about to get up-leveled, rinsed out and re-examined in many ways.  The dedicated focus on the pillars of Forrest Yoga: Breath, Strength, Integrity and Spirit have helped me build trust in myself and confidence through clarity. Instead of simply believing a concept Forrest Yoga has taught me to feel and trust my own experience as the truth.  In this way I have grown at my own pace and learned from my mistakes and my gifts. Everyday my yoga practice teaches me the importance of breath, how to skillfully breathe and feel my body's ability to change and heal. I have felt space and sparkle glowing inside me and I can command a position on my mat and in my life.  I am grateful for all my teachers, including my students and my closest mentor, my breath.
I have been teaching yoga in Houston for 20 years and am one of the founding Forrest Yoga Guardian (Mentor) teachers.
