Hello! I'm a mother, teacher and student currently residing in Encinitas, California. My love of movement began with dance lessons at age 4, and my first encounter with yoga was in 1992 as a student of art history at Barnard College in New York City. I dabbled for years, neither serious nor committed, but always curious. After completing an MSc at The London School of Economics and Political Science, I moved to Hong Kong to put my degrees to use, and tried out my corporate persona in Marketing and Communications management. It was during these days of working hard and playing hard that I discovered Ashtanga Yoga in 2001, and life took a different turn. I committed to deeper learning, and in 2007, I began making trips to Mysore, India, to study with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, R. Sharath Jois and R. Saraswathi Jois before returning home and having one baby, and then another. These babies – who are now 13 and 10 years old – are both the backbone and fruits of my yoga practices. I am grateful to have received teaching Authorization from KPJAYI and am honored to have shared this beautiful and transformative practice with students in Hong Kong, India, Denmark, Germany and the U.S. I believe that yoga practices should be shared in a completely supportive and accepting space, in which practitioners safe and free to have their unique and ever-evolving needs addressed on a moment-to-moment basis. I am very grateful to my teachers and fellow students and seekers I've been enriched by on this path.
