Why I practice Baptiste Yoga

A friend told me about BPYSF, and at the time, I was relatively new to the Bay Area, and unconsciously looking for a community. I was not expecting to get it from going to a yoga class; however, after my first class at BPYSF, I knew I needed to be involved. The BPYSF community, the energy created and fostered in the studio, is rare and such a powerful benefit to my life on and off the mat. I am stronger in my body and in my mind when I come to BPYSF, and I love that I get to share that with others :) 


Why I teach Baptiste yoga
I teach Baptiste yoga because I truly believe it provides an unlock in our lives. Baptiste Yoga is so much more than a yoga practice -- it is a way to learn how to show up fully in our lives, even when there are rocks in the way (or we think there are). My dream as a teacher is to share that with my students, and be an avid supporter for anything you want to change, in and out of the studio. 


My promise to you
I promise to bring my authentic self to class. I invite my students to play with strength and ease and to go to new places they didn't think possible -- all while honoring their bodies in each moment.
