I remember the first time I took a yoga class. I felt a huge connection and power within my body. I was a dancer growing up and was looking to find a movement system that gave me a similar feeling as when I was on stage. My classes are both challenging and approachable. I want all people to connect to something higher within themselves. Black Swan has given me the tools to harness my creativity and open heart. I am so grateful for this amazing community and look forward to our students taking yoga on the road. In my classes you will see a merging of the alignment and creative worlds. Hope to see you on your mat soon. Namaste!!!
