As I walked along my journey of self discovery, I became inspired to share the tools I found effective in finding inner peace with others. In 2013, I completed my power vinyasa focused yoga teacher training with Alchemy of Yoga at haute yoga Queen Anne with the incredible happiness seeker, Silvia Mordini. After I became a certified, I began teaching for Yoga Behind Bars, UW Yogis and UW Mindfulness Project.
My love of movement is revealed in every class. I incorporate pranayama, meditation and strength building into my vinyasa flow to challenge students physically and mentally. My intention is to share mindfulness techniques that connect students to the present moment while empowering them to expand their practice.
Tools for Inner Peace Workshops
Do you experience that intoxicating feeling of peace from yoga and want more practical tools that you can take off of your mat? Well, that’s exactly what I do! Tools for inner peace workshops dive deeper into the study of Pranayama (breath work), Meditation, Yoga, and Cognitive Behavorial Therapy in 2-4 hour sessions where students leave with tangible tools that can be incorporated into their everyday life.
Workshops (8-12 participants)
Tools for Inner Peace:
In a loving environment, we'll discuss barriers to happiness (stress, anxiety, chronic pain, ect). Then we'll review three to five practical tools on how to live a more harmonious life followed by guided practice of each one. Worksheets with the various tools will be provided to jot down notes. Videos will be provided at request!
Tools for Inner Peace may include the following:
Pranayama exercises for moments of stress, trouble sleeping or anxiety.
Yoga sessions (15-20 minutes) that could be easily integrated into morning or nighttime routines. Morning sequences will be an invigorating flow to provide an energetic jumpstart to the day. Sequences designed for evenings will be more restorative with 4-6 postures held for 3-5 minutes.
Various meditation techniques to challenge self deprecating thoughts, encourage connection to self, and most importantly, provide a sense of calmness in an otherwise chaotic world.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is based on labelling triggers and inserting alternatives, like the items listed above to replace habitual negative self-talk, excessive worry and unhealthy coping skills.

I also offer yoga and meditation classes in the workplace -- offering mindful yoga and meditation classes to offices throughout the Pacific Northwest. Classes are designed to be accessible to all levels of students, so everyone feels welcomed. I actively encourage my students to take breaks whenever feels right, in turn, creating a safe space for everyone to reset before they head back into their work day.
Mediation and Yoga classes typically run for 45 minutes during the lunch hour. This allows employees to exercise self care at work, saving them the time and stress from commuting to another location.
