I am a Montana native who moved to Sammamish in 2011. Growing up in The Big Sky Country, I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity of enjoy Mother Nature at her finest. My family and I have quite the soft spot for animals and rescue every furry critter in need. I learned at a young age to respect my surroundings and those animals in it. Most of my time was spent outdoors, lavishing in every moment of it. From trail running and white water rafting to cliff jumping and exploring ‘Where the Buffalos Roam’, Montana has made me who I am.
After years of rigorous trail runs and all my adventures, I found hot yoga to help heal an old back injury. I was amazed at the healing effects it had on me physically and mentally. It was this new and exciting butt-kicking workout that somehow relaxed and restored me at the same time. It wasn’t until I completed my RYT Hatha Teacher Training with Piper Sandifer in 2013 that I was really starting to understand what yoga truly was. It wasn’t about the workout or the postures, but rather something bigger and more enthralling. Piper and Hot Yoga Experience have helped open doors I never thought about opening and I am so happy to be apart of the HYE family.
I am an Argentinian native and I have lived in the Greater Seattle area since 2003. My husband Bill and I are proud parents of two beautiful girls and a dog. I am passionate about healthy living and nutrition. I believe that human bodies were made to move, and that is what I do all the time! I am an enthusiastic yogini, gymnast, skier, paddle boarder and hiker!
I discovered yoga after having my second baby and I truly believe in the physical and spiritual benefits of a consistent yoga practice. In 2014 I had a skiing accident and I needed reconstructive knee surgery; a daily and consistent yoga practice in the hot room at HYE was a critical factor in my complete rehabilitation. From the first day, I fell in love with the HYE caring and welcoming teachers and staff. I decided to retire from a successful corporate finance career to pursue my passion and true dharma in life: to be a yoga teacher. I feel honored and privileged to guide other people to experience the benefits of this amazing ancient discipline, achieve their fitness goals and ultimately, live a more peaceful and soulful life.
My mission as a yoga teacher is to share yoga with the world! I love to teach hatha, power vinyasa and Yin Yoga. I believe that everybody, regardless of age, physical abilities and body type can find immense inner peace, health and fitness in a consistent yoga practice. I like to make my students feel welcome and safe on their mat and have fun while in class. I design yoga classes that incorporate the ancient philosophical and spiritual elements of yoga, a lot of Argentinian music as well as a space for meditation. I love to see the world upside down so I create sequences that incorporate arm balances and yoga poses that provide an opportunity for my students to test their athletic capabilities, always making sure to provide modifications to accommodate to all fitness levels and abilities. Yoga is for everybody. If you can breathe, you can do yoga!
After a (mostly) spontaneous move to the PNW from the upper Midwest in the fall of
2018, I found myself wanting to stay active through the winter months.
After a lifetime of playing softball, practicing hot yoga was new and unfamiliar to me. I
realized that instead of having teammates to regularly depend on, in the hot room, it
was just me and the mat.
While I initially started yoga for the physical benefits, what I’ve ultimately gained has
been surprisingly rewarding. I learned that I was ready to break away from comfortable
old habits and embrace some real and raw emotional moments that presented me with
a greater sense of self and personal growth. I learned that we all have our own yoga
journey and that we all show up in different ways and for different reasons. It’s just
important to show up.
When I’m not at the studio, you can find me adventuring with my two kids that are still
home, skyping with my grandbabies, playing with my dog and chasing sunsets with my
Being consistently surrounded by positivity and encouragement, I found myself
continuing to thrive in my new home and I’m so glad to be here.
I am a business owner, mommy, coach and athlete. I am inspired to create change.
After years of beating up my body through competitive sports, I needed a change. I was searching for something to help heal my injuries without becoming bored. I found it in Hot Yoga. I could challenge myself every class and saw improvements in my first week. I loved learning how to internally focus, which correlated in my daily work. As a mom of a toddler, I needed my Hot Yoga time to re energize and get myself in the right frame of mind to start and end my day. I decided to become an instructor to share with others all the good things Hot Yoga brought to my life. When I leave a Hot Yoga class I am refreshed, energized, and very sweaty. I would recommend Hot Yoga for everyone regardless of age, gender, ability, or background. Everyone has daily challenges and Hot Yoga can be the thing to help you overcome them.
I live in Fall City with my daughter and dogs. I played rugby on the USA Women’s National Team and now I coach the Eastside Lions Girls Program. I visit my family in Iowa every summer and participate in RAGBRAI (bike ride across Iowa). I love hot yoga, hiking, learning, reading, and traveling. I naturally have horrible fashion sense, but am very open to help at all times. I love to help a cause and am inspired by passionate people. My favorite quote is: Abundance is represented by an uninterrupted circle of giving and receiving.
