I am currently a doctoral student in Materials Science and Engineering at UC San Diego. I do research on the very things that make up our world, and for me, yoga has been a complementary practice of studying what makes up the body and mind. I started my study of yoga in 2014, and completed my 200 hour RYT in Koh Phangan, Thailand in 2016 with All Yoga. A born adventurer, I spend much of my time traveling, surfing, running, rock climbing, and hiking. I'm constantly inspired by nature, and I strive to bring its meditative solace into a yoga practice that I can share with my students. I have bachelors degrees in both Materials Science and Biomedical Engineering, and I am passionate about integrating scientific and anatomical knowledge to create a safe and effective practice, in a lighthearted and fun atmosphere.
