I came for the sweat and found a way of life. I was a long-time athlete looking for a challenge and was hooked from my very first yoga class. It wouldn’t be until years later that I connected with the practice on a deeper level, outside of the perceived “fitness trend.” After my son was born, I turned to my mat in a life-saving-and-changing way and the practice ignited my greatest purpose: to serve and give back to others. The practice of yoga is simple, be yourself. I believe that showing up for yourself is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and to this world. I am passionate about encouraging others to move, breathe, feel, and heal on and off their yoga mats. My hope is that we come together to love and lift each other as we navigate through this thing we call “life.”
In my everyday life, I’m a play-at-home mama, yoga teacher, life photographer, writer, artist, Tahoe-lover, a sucker for dark chocolate, dark beer, and a life well-lived. You can find me on my mat teaching with a wide-open heart in Sacramento, CA and online at www.oneOeight.com.
