It is my passion to help people improve their lives, health and fitness through movement. I am a certified yoga teacher, personal trainer, and Pilates instructor with a PhD in Literature from the University of California, San Diego. Passionate about learning, I have spent countless hours studying, practicing, and teaching yoga, fitness, and Pilates in order to offer research- and evidence-based practices to help you improve your strength, flexbility, mobility and mindset for optimal health and fitness.
I specialize in yoga for athletes, and specifically focus on injury prevention and improved performance in your sport. I am an Elite Power Yoga for Sports coach, having trained with Gwen Lawrence, named by ESPN as "Best Innovation in Sports Medicine." Power Yoga for Sports is sport-specific yoga to improve athletes' power and performance on the playing field, as well as reduce the risk of injury and lessen recovery time. The PYFS motto is Strength + Flexibility = Power and it works.
As a teacher and trainer, with over ten years of experience teaching movement, I design personal training sessions to help you achieve your goals and reach optimal health and fitness. I help you reach your fitness, health and performance goals in order to move better, train better, and live better for longevity and sustainability in your sport, body, and life.
