I’ve been teaching Yoga and meditation for 15 years, practicing for more than 20, and I still learn something new with every class.

I teach a mindful, alignment-based style, with plenty of room for exploration. I love it when my students start fine-tuning their own practices to what they actually need – that’s one of the sparks that can drive a life-long connection to Yoga.

In my classes you can expect a well-rounded physical practice with a thoughtful warm up and cool down and a full resting pose (Savasana) at the end. I usually build the class around a particular alignment lesson or “take-away” that you can use in your life and in your practice. For instance, we might work on finding ease in your neck so you won’t tighten up as you come into a backbend or… ahem… use the computer or phone. Each class also includes some inner work, like breath practice or a short meditation.

I welcome adults of all body types, genders, ages, and backgrounds.

For the last few years I’ve also been training in the Realization Process. This is a set of more than 50 practices created by Judith Blackstone to support healing and refinement of the body, mind, heart, and spirit. I’m now fully certified as a teacher and thrilled to be offering private sessions through Circle, either in person at the studio or online.

My past lives have included several years organizing and teaching in Circle’s Yoga Teacher Trainings, several years of teaching literature and writing at UCLA (including their first-ever classes on “The Environment in American Literature” and on ecocriticism as a field), a Mellon Fellowship, academic degrees from UCLA (PhD, English) and Yale (B.A., Humanities, summa cum laude), and stints at social and environment nonprofits.

I look forward to seeing you in class!
