There is nothing that pushes me to be a better person than hot yoga. I began practicing in October of 2011, excited but very shy and extremely scared of the unknowns of hot yoga. I had only taken one yoga class before, at Grossmont College, but it didn't motivate me. Throughout my first hot yoga class, I couldn't stop grinning. Ever since then, I have improved emotionally, physically, mentally. I am a stronger person all around because of this yoga and I look forward to helping people discover what they're capable of.
I'm a born and raised San Diego native. I had taken yoga classes from time to time, none of which really kept my interest until I tried my first hot class. I immediately loved everything about it, the heat, the postures, the challenge. As my body started quickly changing, my flexibility improved and I could focus my mind better, I become more and more passionate about developing my practice. It's been 7 years and I still hold the same passion for my practice. Yoga is the savior I never knew I needed and I want to share the blessing of yoga as much as I possibly can during this life..
In 2005 I took my first Bikram class here in San Diego. There was an introductory special of 10 days of yoga- I WENT EVERY SINGLE DAY. After taking my first class I was in love with the way I felt inside and out and how challenging class was! I knew that this yoga was something special. For the next 4 years or so I was in and out of the hot room then finally had a more consistent practice after moving to San Diego from NYC in 2009. I earned a degree in Marketing in New York City and fiddled with that for a few years while still incorporating yoga in my life. Then, with the support of family and my yoga community, I completed my teacher training in Los Angeles and was certified in the Fall of 2011. I was so worried if I was doing the right thing or not but after teaching my first class I knew I was doing exactly what I was supposed to be doing, sharing the gift of yoga with others.
After starting a family in 2014 my teaching took a backseat but I never left it, it's part of who I am. In September 2016 I joined Anthony as co-owner of the studio and I couldn't be more thrilled! I get to do what I love and spend time with my family. Sharing yoga with others makes my heart full. If you're ever second guessing trying out yoga just remember- you have nothing to lose and only more chances to improve your life. Take a leap of faith and see where it brings you.
