Personal Message

Practicing spiritual and mental disciplines of yoga have always been major parts of my life since I was a child.  Growing up in a Buddhist family allowed me to experience the spiritual disciplines of yoga early in life.  I started practicing asanas in 2006 while I was working full-time as a strategic consultant in Bangkok, Thailand.  Yoga have improved my wellbeing physically and spiritually.

My journey through practicing and teaching has been a blessing experience.  I enjoy teaching, sharing, and seeing improvements in each student’s mental and physical health.  Bikram Yoga has always been my favorite; however, I also love to practice other styles of yoga.  Whenever I travel back to Thailand, I take the opportunity to learn from other gurus to advance my practice and to be a better teacher.

Hi everyone! I started practicing the 26&2 (Bikram method) in February 2002 at a time of high stress in my life.  The beneficial effects were immediate and I loved the practice.  I have continued practicing 26&2 and, over the years, I have added other practices along the way (Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Rocket).   Practicing yoga makes me a better person.  In August 2018 I completed teacher training for the 26&2 series with Yoga Factory (Zeb Homison, Emily Vandemmia, and Philip Vendemmia) and I am a Original Hot Yoga Alliance Level 1 teacher.  In August 2019 I completed teacher training for the Sacred Geometry Vinyasa Training with Benjamin Sears and Tatiana DePillo.  I look forward to seeing you in class and supporting your yoga journey!

I look forward to teaching, learning & practicing with you!  I grew up in the Midwest, consumed with classical piano & private girls' school.  I studied chemical engineering & classical piano at Tulane University and subsequently moved to east coast (Boston & Philadelphia suburbs).  After graduate school MBA, I got married and had 2 boys while working in the consumer products/pharmaceutical/vaccine industries.  During these years, I physically stressed my body with piano, racquetball, long distance running, snowboarding and challenging childbirths (2 cesarean sections).  Eventually, knee problems forced me to discontinue high impact sports.  I reached peak stress levels when family members were diagnosed with cancer and mental illness.  A close friend recruited me to Hatha Yoga (Bikram Method).  Although overwhelmed by first few classes, I was surprised by the physical & emotional outlet, without the physical stress on my joints.  After several months,  I joined an awesome network of yoga studios called Twisters and my practice became stronger (less stressed, less fatigued, more patient, leaner).  Within a year, my abdominal strength improved along with reduced swelling, scar tissue and numbness from c-sections.  Over a few years, my joint ache, stiffness, hand/foot repetitive motion issues improved.  I became increasingly intrigued by Hatha Vinyasa yoga and expanded my practice to include Hatha Ashtanga yoga (Primary Series).  From last ~20 years to present, I give major credit to  yoga for the mental & physical strength that I have achieved with 50 years living on this earth.  In spring 2017, I was diagnosed with osteo-arthritis, but I am pain-free, and no knee surgery!  I am so proud of being coached & influenced by outstanding instructors, practitioners & business owners in our global yoga community.  I’m inspired and humbled on a daily basis by my yoga family.  My mission is to share yoga with everyone who is willing to come & try.  I’ll see you in the hot room... no fears … safe space.  I hope to see you soon!  Here are some of my achievements so far:
