I recently moved to CA from the East Coast to pursue my Master's Degree in Consciousness and Transformative Studies with the goal of helping other's to live their passion and purpose. Yoga has played a pivotal role in my own transformation and is truly a passion. I am looking to find a community where I can unroll my mat and call home. I have a natural ability to integrate an energetic vinyasa class while encouraging students to stay present and tune in to the mind-body connection. I continually strive to invite all who attend my class, the opportunity to walk off their mats, not just with a great work-out, but a deeper sense of who they are, with all of their strengths and vulnerabilities. I encourage a sense of community in class while maintaining a fun atmosphere of growth and connection. Comprehensive knowledge of the practical and philosophical aspects of yoga Demonstrated knowledge of medical considerations of injury prevention Familiar with appropriate instruction technique and class format Ability to maintain high level of professionalism Excellent verbal and written communication skills with excellent organizational skills Passion for teaching with good time management skills Ability to provide excellent level of service to meet the goal and objectives of the studio I teach from the heart and always engage fully with my students during class.
