Born and raised on the island of Guam, I came to NYC to study at NYU and have been practicing yoga since. After graduating with a BFA, I completed my first training and have continued studies with Nevine Michaan, founder of Katonah Yoga, Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee at Yoga Shanti, and Iyengar teacher Genny Kapuler. I’ve been leading 200hr trainings and post-training mentorships to students in NYC and the world for over 6 years. In 2015, I opened SKY TING with Krissy Jones and Nick Poe. We currently have 3 studios in NYC, alongside leading teacher trainings, advanced workshops, and retreats around the globe.
My teachings derive from several traditions of yoga and an expanded study of physicality in general. I’ve been acting and dancing since I can remember, my background in performing arts both informs and energizes my method and material. My classes are typically defined by an emphasis on structural integrity, smart sequencing, a connection to music and incorporating practical theory. I aim to help students better connect with themselves and with the world-wide-web of life. All in all, my primary goal with my practice and what I teach is to figure out how yoga can be a tool to make your life better. Whether its expanding your vision, helping anchor you down, making you more radiant, or sparking joy… this practice is magic if you understand how to use it.
