Dice Yoga | Venice, CA
I love yoga, and I love yoga-ing. One of my favorite teachers said it best, “Yoga can be a noun, and it can also be a verb.” My journey courses with inspiring ups and transforming downs. There are so many paths, and I know my path is only one of many, full of ideals and practices inspired by others. We live a life capable of being inspired, passionate, let down, spiteful, angry, sad, and best of all…happy. You get the idea. We live in dualities and variations of polarities. We aim for balance, for our neutral, aware that there are many different truths to finding neutral. There are many truths, period.
I was fortunate enough to become a student of yoga in 2007. To be able to share my passion for yoga through teaching has been one of my life’s greatest gifts. It inspires change and growth in my life daily. Yoga allows me to meet a vast and diverse group of people all connected by one great love for yoga & movement.

I can only hope to inspire others like my family, friends and teachers continue to inspire me.

Less of a flow, more of a hatha practice, we will excavate any unwanted energy within the body, and hopefully, the mind. Using twists, forward folds, […]
Surya Namaskar C, also known as Chandra Namaskar can be a useful salutation when looking to open the front body, thus creating more free and expansive backbends. This flow practice will build off of the traditional salutation and give way to a more non-traditional approach. We finalize our practice with forward folds, core work, and […]
A Practice of Sense Withdrawal This is a practice that takes the yogi out of their “normal“ practice. In short form, pratyahara means “withdrawal from the senses”, but what it truly embodies is one’s ability to react less to the stimuli and events happening around them, and approach situations in a more focused and purposeful manner. The ability to act more […]
