I came to yoga in 2001 with a strong desire to learn the discipline as a safe alternative to “working out” while travelling extensively for work.

I was also experiencing a health challenge that prompted me to seek more holistic ways to heal.

In the beginning, yoga was nothing more than a work out, a physical activity. Over time, it became a philosophy and a way of life.

Once I started doing yoga, my goal was to get as many people as possible to do it - or at least try it - especially people of color, who are not only under-represented as yogis but who, more than most, could benefit greatly from what doing yoga has to offer.

In 2005, I was certified as a Hatha yoga instructor and in March of 2015, I received certification to teach Restorative yoga.

I have taught in studio and non-studio settings, including where I currently teach, at a local Reiki shrine. I also conduct yoga classes at a local beach.


Through asanas, pranayama, laughter and love,

I show my students (many of them beginners, including my 70+-year-old mother) that yoga is accessible and that yoga is for everybody and every body.

"Can’t" is a bad word in my class. My motto to those I teach is this: Don’t focus on what you can’t do; do what you can. And breathe.
