I have practiced and taught Bikram Yoga all over the world, from my home town in California to Kathmandu. When you come to my class, you can expect a traditional high-energy and meditative experience, usually with a couple bad yoga jokes thrown in (I think they’re funny). Students say my classes are “truly inspiring” and reflect who I am as a person everyday: “genuine, loving, insightful, kind, direct, and knowledgeable”.

I took my first Bikram yoga class in 2006 and completed the intensive nine week Bikram Yoga teacher training program in 2009 with Bikram Choudhury. In 2017, I returned to Bikram’s teacher training to refresh my knowledge, practicing yoga twice a day and following lectures, and posture clinics with Bikram and his team of senior staff all over again for another nine weeks! I have refined my teaching skills with the guidance of several senior teachers and am dedicated to this practice as a life-long journey, both as a student and as a teacher, continually seeking to deepen my understanding of how this yoga works to heal body, mind, and soul for everyone who tries it.

Whether it is your first class or your 1000th, I truly believe that you are “never too late, never too bad, never too old or too sick to start from scratch once again!”.

My favorite posture is the savasana after camel pose.
