Frequently Asked Questions
1. Where did you study to become a certified yoga instructor?
Yoga Garden in San Francisco. I love every second of my time there.
2. What would you tell a beginner to expect, bring, or do to prepare for their first class?
I would say not to overthink it. Remove all expectations and just show up. Keep your eyes on your mat, yoga isn't a competition with others in the room. I'd say to just do your best, listen to the teacher and don't be shy. Ask questions, stay after class and have a chat (or better yet, come early and talk in private). If you sweat a lot, you should bring a towel or even your own mat. Water is always a nice idea as well. I can tell you what NOT to bring... your phone!
3. You're certified in both yoga and pilates. What do you prefer?
I love yoga for the physical and mental clarity it brings, but reformer pilates gives me a killer workout. I find that combining the two is incredible. The reformer helped me to take my yoga practice to a whole new level, especially by helping me to build my upper body strength.
4. I have an injury, can I still do yoga?
You should always consult your health care professional or GP if you are unsure about what exercise regime is best for you. A lot of my students have had injuries in the past, and I make sure to offer multiple modifications for all the students in the class.
5. What is a private 1 on 1 session like with you?
My private sessions are 100% catered with YOU in mind. Depending on the class style, I will usually have music with a customized playlist, and all the props required. The class is obviously a lot more personal and great for people looking to start a yoga practice, or those wishing to dive deeper with more challenging poses and philosophy.
* You would just need to bring your mat ( + towel and water if you wish).
6. What is your favorite thing about yoga?
The way it makes me feel and how it consequently carries me throughout my day, helping bring awareness to my body and what I put in it.
