Aloha Love, I'm so grateful to meet you. My journey as a yoga teacher started as a journey to find my own healing from the traumas of growing up in foster homes, near death car accidents & substance abuse issues that almost ended my life several times…. my life was a mess and I was seeking healing, the yogic path brought me that and so much more… It all came crashing down when i fell into a year long depression from work related burnout which ended my relationship & kick started my spiritual awakening, forcing me to ask important questions like ‘what is the purpose of my life? what would make me truly happy( I knew money & material possessions wasn’t the answer) and how can i create a life I’m excited to wake up in the morning each day? I experienced such deep healing, I wanted to share this powerful energy medicine with the whole world if I could.
I started teaching in 2005 and within a soon after, I had created a yoga movement launching the first yoga challenge online in the world on YouTube which impacted millions of lives. So many people were contacting me to help heal their lives, that I decided to create a school to train others to do what I do. This way, we could have a tribe & community of healers, teachers and light workers spreading this message and mission to heal the world, and lead people back to health, happiness, and deeper connection with their souls.
This led to the creation of Flow State Yoga Institute. So far we have certified hundreds of teachers, training over 690,000 students with my courses and through this unique and powerful system of healing that combines various styles of yoga including vinyasa flow, power yoga, ashtanga, kundalini, yin and thai yoga, as well as indigenous shamanic healing practices, tantra, mantras, breath work, many forms of meditation, ecstatic dance, plant based nutrition, detox cleansing, inner child healing, bio hacking and much more.
