I was born in Guadelajara, Mexico and was raised in Wenatchee, Washington. For me, yoga is an extension of my passion for movement and my love of the performing arts. Just as a performer must find strength and stability in the preparation leading to the final performance, I find the same joy in building the basics of an asana practice as a base to flourish into a beautiful expression of movement. I hold a high regard for the simplicity of the practice, for not only does everything you need lie in the basics, but it is also where beauty and clarity are found.
I was trained by Annie Carpenter and align my instruction style and yoga values with the SmartFLOW methodology, which blends the discipline of classic yoga with anatomic awareness and fluid transitions.
I currently reside in Seattle, where I own and teach at my own yoga studio Seattle Yoga Lounge in the Greenlake neighborhood.
