As I stand, 21 years later, after stepping into my first yoga class, my passion for Yoga continues to seed, sprout and blossom. I completed my 200 HR YTT in 2014, and my 300 HR YTT in 2018. I have been teaching Yoga full-time since 2014. I am registered 200 HR school of Yoga, and lead my own teacher trainings in the valley. Through breath and movement comes stillness, patience, self-love, contentment, mindfulness, awareness, healing and compassion. It is my humble intention to create a safe space for students to open their heart and seek their truth. It is important to me to honor the roots of yoga and to share these roots along with the history and philosophy of Yoga. Leading retreats in Greece since 2018 holds a special place in my heart since both my parents are Greek, my roots reside deep in the country and culture.
I am so excited to co-teach this retreat with my beautiful teacher Jenn Chiarelli whom I've loved since 2005.
I look forward to sharing this experience with all of you!!!
