as many of you know, recently the market has become saturated with "yoga alliance qualified" instructors, and this certification no longer commands the respect that perhaps it once did. i take this very seriously, and i do everything in my power to continue on my path, not only as an instructor, but also as a student. i take time out regularly to return to my yoga teachers (USA and bali), my massage teacher (vietnam), and my singing bowl teacher (thailand) to further my education. additionally, i work to expand my knowledge of functional movement, biomechanics, anatomy, and nutrition.
maintaining the integrity of my teachers' lineages, as well as providing safe and updated information for my students, is of the utmost importance to me. please know that all those who study with me are receiving the very best training i can possibly provide. whether you practice at HYS or elsewhere, for your own safety and well-being, please do your research to ensure that your teacher is truly knowledgable and qualified (or at least koala-fied).
