‘Be in sync with the drums of your heart’

This advice has stuck with me ever since I quit my job in the corporate banking world in 2012 and started my Yoga Teacher Training whilst traveling the world. I have been a drummer all of my life and when I stopped to listen to my inner drum beat, I found it beating to the tune of yoga and wellness, an area in which I’ve been practicing for the past 8 years. Following this tune has lead me to teach yoga classes, trainings, and workshops throughout the world, particularly in India and my native United States. I completed my 500hr Yoga Teacher Training in India, and also 300 hours of training in Thai Massage in Thailand. With this background, I like to take a hands-on approach to classes and enjoy teaching and practicing a variety of styles. My fascination with the human body grows daily and leads me to write numerous articles on the subject.

To me, yoga is a never-ending journey of self-realization and celebration. I spend a lot of time connecting with nature as an avid trekker and professional scuba diver. I find that yoga is a great way to experience, embrace, and celebrate the connection between ourselves and the world that surrounds us, stomping our feet in time with our inner heartbeat.
