Born and raised in Cabin John, MD I found the mat at the age of 17 after a soccer injury that required extensive therapy.   After graduating from Salisbury University in 2011 I decided to do my first teacher training with Yandara Yoga in Bali studying under international recognized teacher Dylan Werner (worth checking out) and Shane-Christopher Perkins. By 24 I had over 500 hours of training and was  teaching in DC/MD.   In each class I try to get students to realize that true yoga doesn't happen on the mat, instead the lessons we learn should be taken off the mat and that is truly where the "practice" is.
