Yoga can transform your life. I began my yoga journey in 1990 in Los Angeles and studied with many world-known teachers. Yoga is a so much more than a physical practice. It is a lifestyle blending the physical practice with meditation, breath work, Ayurveda, (yoga’s sister science), and conscious and clean living. My passion is to share this knowledge so that students can move and breath more freely. You can feel good in your body and ride the waves of your breath. Melt away stress and experience a taste of bliss.

Yoga is for anyone who wants feel more present and alive. Staying rooted with your breath and moving with your own rhythm... this is yoga. Everything in life is always changing, and this grounding practice keep you grounded. Yoga can soften, strengthen, rejuvenate, balance, and release tension. Taking time to fill yourself with life-giving prana. With our AVAC yoga community, you will shine on and off the mat. I am honored to share my knowledge, experience, and passion of a yogic life with you!
