A San Diego native, I moved up to Los Angeles in pursuit of a college education. I studied at UCLA and completed my B.S. in Psychobiology in 2013. During my time at UCLA, I managed the Women’s NCAA Swim & Dive program. I think the combination of my psychology background and involvement in college-level athletics sparked my interest in the physical body as well as the mind. One of the most interesting classes I took at UCLA was Stress & Bodily Disease. In it we discussed the correlations between different stimuli (positive or negative) we subject our minds and bodies to and how it ultimately affects our quality of life. I’ve always been invested in personal growth and have a deep-seated hunger to learn. I think underlying all of this is an innate personal desire to understand all the inner-workings of life itself.
I found Hot 8 Yoga through a friend, and began my intro offer back in April of 2014. I quickly became hooked by the intense physical, mental, and spiritual workout I was engaging in. Yoga at Hot 8 Yoga was the first workout I became fully immersed in. I love that one’s yoga practice can be anything he/she needs it to be. Some days I come to my mat needing an intense physical workout - other days I need to engage my mind. Luckily there is everything from Yoga Barre to Hot Yoga, from Yin to Sculpt. I love the fact that I can pick and choose which classes I want to take based on the mood I’m in that day. No class-discrimination here! I have fallen in love with Hot 8 Yoga and I want to share this passion with the rest of the yogi community! Questions/comments? I’m your guy! Feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
