When I realized that my desk job in a big government agency wasn't making me happy, Yoga Heights was born. Now I get to practice and teach yoga every day! Yoga Heights provides yoga and wellness for every body, every level and every budget. As an entrepreneur, running my own company is an adventure that keeps me on my toes. I work to empower my staff of more than 30 teachers and studio assistants to build thriving careers in Yoga and beyond. I've developed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training along side my own teacher, and we have trained more than 50 people to live their best lives as yogis, whether teaching or not. Yoga has become my way of living my wild and precious life in the most present and grateful way possible!
