Lotus Spirit Yoga
grew from a passion for
self-evolution and a deep desire to help and serve others


My yoga teacher training began in 2017, I have completed over 500 hours of training with Raj Patra the co-owner and founder of Yoga For Life. The lineage of yoga that I follow is Universal Yoga, created by Guruji Andre Lappa rooted in ancient Himalayan Yoga traditions. The classes I teach align with Universal Yoga principles which incorporate Hatha, Vinyasa, mudra, pranayama, bandhas, Maya Koshas, the Chakra system, visualization, and meditation.

My teaching style is firm and direct with an emphasis on proper alignment, so that the intent of a posture is safely achieved, and on anatomical cues so that you know why you are doing something and where you should be feeling it.

In addition to teaching yoga I am a full time graduate student studying Clinical Mental Health Counseling and am a part time Counselor at Volunteers of America Oregon. I incorporate yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices in my counseling work with clients. I have an extensive background in education, human development, and fitness holding a BA in Education and certifications in personal training and group fitness.
