Three words that describe me are sweet, sassy and compassionate.
My perfect meal is made from fresh ingredients and shared with loved ones.
Coffee or tea? Espresso in the morning, tea for the rest of the day.
Other than Asha, you might see me around Sacramento at usually somewhere in Midtown – either on a long walk with my dog and husband or enjoying the company of friends over delicious food and drink.
I highly recommend long walks, deep breaths and moments of silence.
I am thankful for every moment of my life.
I hope for a life surrounded by loved ones and to never forget how lucky I am to live the life I have.
I love life.
I’m scared of clowns, alligators and not being good enough.
Yoga has taught me to slow down, live life one moment at a time, and not take myself so seriously.
I am inspired by the potential of every moment and every human being.
Three words to describe my teaching style are mindful, playful and simple.
One of my favorite yoga books is Meditations from the Mat by Rolf Gates
Music you might hear in my class Thievery Corporation, Kronos Quartet, Lucinda Williams, Girish, Feist, Philip Glass, Krishna Das, U2, etc. (Every now and then, when the time is right, Led Zeppelin shows up, too.)
My Yoga experience includes some awkward introductions when I was a teenager. Years later, I found a regular practice that spilled off my mat into my whole life. I am a lifelong student and teach to share the gifts I receive from my practice and experience. I’ve completed two 200-hour teacher trainings, most recently at Asha Yoga. I frequently write about my experiences with yoga and what inspires me on my website, yaynamaste.com
