In 2016, her first Rocket teacher, Brenn Micael moved to the area and began teaching this style at Aranyani. She fell in love with this style with its deep roots and connection to Ashtanga yoga, which is what she first practiced. She is currently focused on deepening her knowledge, practice and teaching in the Rocket and Ashtanga lineages. She has completed 150 hours in Rocket with her teacher David C. Kyle, 30 hours of Ashtanga with Sam Vetrano of Bodhi Movement Boulder and 25 hours Rocket with Gil Perez.
She loves to keep learning and finds inspiration through her personal practice. She loves to help students deepen their practice at all levels.
When not practicing Rocket or Ashtanga she loves to settle in with Restorative and Yin yoga.
