Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

My Manduka creates an oasis for me to become all of me. When I step on my Manduka mat it is like I am stepping onto a mirror. My Manduka sees me in ways that no one else does, and provides with me with a safe and comfortable place to be who I am. No judgment, no criticism, just self- reflection. This mat is like no other mat. It is awesome! There is no place I would rather be than on my mat! My Manduka is my crystal ball- it knows where I am going, even before I do.

I am originally from Ventura, Ca but now living in Idaho. I began practicing as a way to de-stress and soon fell in love with yoga and its ability to free my sprit, calm my mind and empower my body.

I study and enjoy a variety of yoga styles (if its yoga, it’s all good) my main foundation and teaching style is Vinyasa flow. I graduated in 2011 from the Shanti School of Yoga in McCall Idaho with a 500 RYT. I have been blessed to study under a variety of amazing teachers such as Debbie Murphy, Hala Khouri, Sara Ivanhoe, Seane Corn and many more.

I suffered from depression and anxiety for years before finding yoga. My love of yoga and its transformational effects has led me to open- I am Yoga, a yoga studio in Boise, Idaho and lead international yoga retreats- Meditation in Motion, where I have the opportunity to share the gift of yoga with others. My passion is finding joy, peace and gratitude through the practice of yoga.
