Find Strength & Calm with Ashtanga Yoga

I took my first Ashtanga class in 2005, looking for a good workout. What I didn’t expect to get was a “work in” – the unparalleled sense of mental calm and inner peace. In 2009, I stopped worrying about “how” I was going to make time for yoga, found myself a teacher, and dedicated myself to regular practice. Every day I step on my yoga mat, I feel calmer, stronger, and more flexible in my body and mind. My many teachers have shared their rich knowledge of traditional yoga blended with modern alignment. No matter if you’re a complete beginner or established practitioner, if you have a desire to practice yoga, I’d be honored to be your teacher!

Traditional Yoga for Modern Times

Ashtanga Yoga is a traditional system of yoga that links breath and movement and is the foundation of vinyasa-style classes. It was passed down from Krishnamacharya to his students and made famous by the Jois family, who have taught this system in Mysore, India and around the world for over 70 years.

With the blessings of my beloved teachers trained by the Jois family, including Richard Freeman & Mary Taylor, I humbly and joyfully teach Ashtanga yoga.

This summer I'm in Maui teaching online for a Japanese university as I normally do every summer. Since I can't go to Japan, I'm in Hawai'i to be as close as possible to Japan for time zone convenience. Maui is a lovely place to be and while I've been teaching yoga...

The Future of Ashtanga Yoga

The Future of Ashtanga Yoga

I teach yoga because I love it and want to share this practice that’s given me millions of opportunities to embody inner calm and strength. The very last thing I want to do is cause harm through culturally appropriating this practice. But as I’m learning: just because I intend not to harm doesn’t mean that I’m not hurting anyone.
