What should students expect from your class?

My classes are challenging and mindful, at the same time, grounding and playful. Think island vibes vibes!

About Me

I am a passionate yoga teacher and student from the Philippines!

Love at first class – that was what I felt after a flow class that I took more than a decade ago. I was drawn to the challenge and sense of calm that the practice gave me. The desire to deepen my practice led to a teacher training in 2012 which ignited the calling to share my yoga to the community. I completed my 500-hr certification with YogaWorks in NYC and I have been teaching ever since. My inspirations and mentors are David Kim, Heather Seagraves, Bernie Clarke, Rachel Scott, and Jasmina Egeler. My passion led me to co-own a yoga studio in the Philippines and teach in New York, Saigon and Vancouver. I am trained in Vinyasa, Restorative and Yin. As an island girl, I very much enjoy Stand-up Paddle Yoga!

I am also a plant-based Holistic Nutritionist, a Reiki practitioner, and on my way to becoming a Life Coach. I co-founded Ubuntu Festival – a movement that promotes wellness and mindfulness through yoga, plant-based food, and music.

When not on the mat, you’ll find me whipping up vegan treats while dancing to some cool tunes, or reading a self-exploration book.
