My yoga journey began back home in the Philippines in 2003. Starting a yoga practice and radically changing my diet and habits were among the best decisions I’ve made in my life. In Manila, I explored different styles such as Ashtanga, Bikram, and Vinyasa. As I practiced over the years, I discovered how to nurture myself, to listen to my body, and to be simply grateful for whatever the present moment brings. Yoga started out as a physical activity and slowly evolved into a deeper practice that helps my psychological and spiritual growth. Upon moving to the U.S. in 2010, I started on the path to becoming a yoga teacher. I completed my yoga teacher training at KC Fitness Link and registered with the Yoga Alliance at the 200-hour level. In addition, I attended Levels 1 and 2 trainings with Yoga Fit and other workshops with renowned visiting teachers such as Desiree Rumbaugh and Max Strom. It brings me great joy to share yoga with my students and to witness them enjoying the many benefits of this wonderful practice.
