List 3 words your students would use to describe your classes:
Caring – Inspiring – Playful

How does your own practice influence your daily life?  

After a great practice I roll up the mat with a positive & calm mind for the day.  My practice leaves me with a feeling of balance.  Yoga reminds me to share love and kindness with the people I meet during the day!  I meditate daily which is essential for me.

Favorite asana?
I love lunge and its many variations! As well as the upside down world.

Who is a teacher who inspires you?
All my students – After each practice I send my gratitude towards all yogis that have attended my classes and inspired me on my journey.

A great yoga class makes you feel:
Unfolded. At peace. In balance.
