Lovelight Website Appointment image

I stepped onto the mat for the first time in 1994 to enhance my dance training. I soon realized that Yoga is the way to transform each moment of our lives into an auspicious journey. Yoga inspired so much benevolence in my heart that I dedicated my self and my life to a disciplined practice several years later. I am deeply grateful to the many teachers who have shared their light and support as my unique style of Vinyasa Flow Yoga continually evolves and grows.
