A graduate of University of San Francisco’s MFA in Writing program, I have loved writing since Kindergarten when I crafted a tale about a journey two friends and I made to the moon in which a monster was featured and my character yelled that she was hungry. The accompanying drawings featured a lot of red and purple and were very passionate.
Yoga became an integral part of my daily life in 1996 and I began teaching in 1998. I’ve been continuously amazed over the years at how my yoga practice has influenced my experience of daily life. Time on my mat brings perspective; the process of using the body to find clarity, truth in alignment, and a balance of effort and ease in each pose naturally translates into the pursuit of clear communication in relationships, a strong commitment to honesty and compassion, and dedication to caring for my body and mind.
I’m all about making yoga more accessible and yet also have deep respect for the origins from which yoga emerged. My goal as a practitioner and teacher is to find ways to delve into the philosophy and traditions of yoga in a way that can be clearly understood today.
Thinking Yogi is one small step toward that goal.
My husband and I live in Lincoln Square with our two children, and we are co-owners of Bloom Yoga Studio. You may read my full bio on Bloom’s website.
Happy Thinking, Yogis!
