The Eight Limbed Path

Teaching Credo

Teaching yoga one to one and working with students individually in a Mysore room has allowed me to develop an individualized approach to each and every student. I honor and inspired by the teachers of the Ashtanga lineage.


Teach what is inside of you, not as it applies to you, to yourself, but as it applies to the other.
— Sri T. Krishnamacharya

My practice guides my teaching. For this reason, most days I do my own practice first thing in the morning and then my teaching day follows.  My personal practice is the direct reference point, my source of inspiration, knowledge, and shareable insights.

I was honored when I was asked by David Hollander to begin teaching, and as a result, it has become a privilege, passion, and mostly a service. I aim to individualize my teaching to the person in front of me and offer what he or she needs all the while honoring the tradition of my teachers.  Ultimately my role as a teacher is to challenge my students, help them learn, uncover their weaknesses, overcome obstacles, keep them safe, and connect more deeply to themselves.  

My teachers are the wisdom and energy that fuels my passion of teaching. As the relationship between myself and my students grow, trust builds which allows the ancient tradition of the yoga to reveal itself through the magic of parampara, an unbroken chain of transmission passed from teacher to student.
