“I get to see the incredible connections that come about through shared practice at Rise. We’re creating an intimate, tight-knit wellness-based community that didn’t exist before -- that’s beautiful to me.”

Tell us about your early roots in your practice of choice.

I started practicing yoga in college, but my practice really picked up when I moved to NY; it was one of the things that kept me balanced and grounded as I was transitioning to life in this city.

What inspires you in your practice?

I’m inspired by my students and seeing the transformation in their practices.

What are valuable lessons learned from your training?

Through yoga, I’ve learned that true growth comes from being open and vulnerable; it was easier for me to learn this on a yoga mat and to let it trickle into daily life, rather than the other way around. I’ve also learned to simplify; I know I get better results when I simplify my practice, and I always say that “doing less and being more” is key to growth.
