An artist, a jetsetter, a teacher, a healer, a mother, and a student at heart, my life is a testament to the fact that life truly is a beautiful adventure. Everywhere I’ve been has led me to exactly where I am today, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

A child pop star in Asia with a platinum album by the age of 13, an enormous amount of pressure bore down on me at a young age. I developed a severe battle with anorexia and bulimia as a result. After years of suffering, I found yoga in Thailand in 1999, and it launched me on a path toward healing, health, and purpose. After the birth of my daughter in 2004, I decided to share my passion for yoga with others and set foot on a life long journey of teaching. Mentored by Annie Carpenter and Lisa Walford at YogaWorks, I became a certified 500 E-RYT. I have continued to share my story as a contributing writer for MindBodyGreen, ElephantJournal, The Huffington Post, and QBlog. I have also graced the cover of Women’s Health Thailand, Yoga Journal Thailand, and LA Yoga.

My signature Fit-Flow classes demonstrate my zeal for the practice. A blend of fun, invigorating flow and insightful instruction, I travel around the globe sharing my practice with the world. I particularly love inversions and arm balances. You can see my passion in action in the Equinox videos I filmed with my husband, “The Contortionist” and “The Balancing Act“. With over 7 million viewers, these videos sparked significant conversation in and around the yoga community.
