I am passionately serving my community to help cultivate healthy bodies, happy lives and infinite possibilities.
I am deeply inspired to share my powerful journey with yoga and meditation. Together we will dive into the realms of mind and matter and smile in the awkward and shaky spots.
My teachings draw from many traditions including Yoga, quantum physics, martial arts, energy work, meditation and sound. Be ready to go deep and have fun.
One of my projects is "Shine Yoga Community" an initiative in which select community classes are held on a "by donation" basis with proceeds going to projects in our global community.
Thank you for visiting, Shine On!

Meditation requires a set of tools that focus the mind from its normal wanderings and brings us back from the immense pool of sensations in the body and thoughts in the mind. We can consider the tools as a way to bring us to HERE AND NOW and the state we generally refer to as meditation is a result of this focus. (The 8 limbs of yoga are described below in relation to meditation) These states of being will vary and I’ve attached a brief outline of brain states below. The apparent structure and form of all we notice is actually full of ‘space’ and this space contains a vast amount of potential energy. As we move into more subtle techniques of meditation we can start to associate more and more with the space.
