My purpose and mission in life is to support, teach, and aid in the healing of all beings, animals, plants, and people like you!
I became a devoted yogi in 2007 when I started taking yoga courses at the Ohio State University. I attended 4 years of level 1, level 2, and 600 level courses covering many branches of yoga and including asanas, pranayama, meditation, history, anatomy, and ayurvedic medicinal practices. Since 2012, I've taught yoga and well-being workshops at festivals and conventions around Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Georgia. I primarily teach Kundalini Yoga in the tradition of Yogi Bhajan with the goal of uplifting, energizing, and healing people through the realization of our true potential.
I'm a 220-hour KRI-certified yoga teacher, Reiki Master, and gong sound healing therapist trained by Crown of Eternity. I've also completed level 2 Conscious Communication training with Gurmukh in Rishikesh in 2016, and another 200-hour kundalini training by Yogi Amandeep in India in 2017. I strive to share the gifts and benefits that yoga has given me with the world and to clear the clouds of doubt and limitation that prevent us from realizing our true self, which is absolute bliss!
I'm also a lover of devotional music from different cultures. I play guitar, drums, gong and singing bowls with local kirtan groups. In 2008, I attained his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art and Technology and a Philosophy minor from the Ohio State University where I worked for 7 years creating videos and other multimedia and managing a media services team. In addition to yoga, consultation, and healing services, I also do freelance photography and videography if you need!
Recently, I've taught workshops, teacher trainings, and classes throughout Ohio in order to share the wisdom of these teachings and uplift the spirit of every being.
If you've ever been to a real yoga class (not just a workout at the gym), but the kind of class where you really feel supported by a teacher who offers wisdom, compassion, true teachings, and a vibrant experience, you understand why I wanted to follow in those footsteps. The blissful times I've spent in meditation, yoga classes, and spiritual ceremonies have helped me so much, I know the best thing I can do with my life is to guide others to that place and even teach them to teach others!
People have come up to me after class and told me that they feel more grounded than ever, they had a powerful experience, they feel light and their stress is gone. They often comment that it was just what they needed.
But, I follow the "teach a man to fish" vs. "give him a fish" principle that I give techniques and lifestyle routines to transform your life into greater well-being everyday, not just for one day.
Many people are intimidated by yoga or kundalini yoga because they think they need to be flexible or they're afraid to try something new, but what I teach is accessible to anyone. I don't teach headstands or dangerous things that are only for extreme yogis. We always give modifications so everyone can do their version of the practice. That's why it's called a "yoga practice" not a "yoga perfect". It's not about perfectionism because you're already perfect, we're just dusting off the layers of doubts, fears, stress, and blocks that conceal your true, beautiful, blissful nature.
