Culinary Institute of America
500 Hour RYT Yoga Teacher Certification
Food has always been a passion of mine. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America back in 2013, I spent my time working in several different restaurants. In those years, I honed my skills and absorbed as much knowledge as I could retain. Unfortunately though, I developed a number of unhealthy habits and was seriously lacking balance in my life, so I made the choice to start putting my own well being before anything else.
Throughout my own health & wellness journey, I used a whole foods rich diet to regain my health and eventually transitioned to a plant-based diet. I also developed a relationship with yoga that ended up taking me across the world. I spent a month traveling in Bali, Indonesia to receive my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification as well as exploring the exotic flavors and abundant array of produce used in authentic Balinese dishes. I intend to share my knowledge of this practice and lifestyle to those that are interested in enriching their mind, body and soul. I believe that the balance of all three is essential to leading a healthy and happy life.
The style of yoga that I teach is Vinyasa, which directly translates “to place in a particular way.” In linking breath & movement, my classes are designed to bring your awareness to the present moment while strengthening the mind/body connection. We will practice different pranayama techniques to help you breathe into each asana & cultivate your spiritual connection with the practice.
