I teach vinyasa classes that are specifically targeted at answering meaningful questions.

 

I believe that the quality of our life is determined by the quality of questions that we ask.

 

To begin, I’ll open a class with an idea in the form of a question, share the inspiration behind the question, and explore the question (say gratitude, or confidence) while moving our bodies.

 

Muse + Move

My mission is to Engage, Educate and Empower.  

I want to inspire and guide others towards their own excellence and fulfillment.

My promise to you is that I will put my heart and soul into creating empowering experiences, inspiring interactions, and an engaging education. All you have to do is show up and give it 100%

 

The Yoga project began with a simple idea: let’s explore movement through our body AND mind. From that, I’ve began to develop vinyasa flows, what I call ViACE Vinyasas. These help physically challenge you and I to better understand ourselves.

 

These classes are designed to move us closer to self realization. That includes uncovering your gifts, your personality, your sense of humor and most importantly, your heart.

 

I believe when we work on ourselves, the adventurous, creative and exploratory part of our soul begins to flourish.
