Vinyasa and Restorative  View Retreats
Experience:Over 20 years
I live in San Francisco, my home town working, volunteering and teaching yoga while maintaining a strong practice and balanced life. Safety, patience and inward focus have been key elements of my practice for over 20 years, which is grounded in Ashtanga Yoga as taught by the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in India. I started practicing yoga to relax. While working 12 hour days and traveling 100K+ miles per year, yoga helped me stay healthy and thrive in my career. Yoga made the competitive corporate environment manageable. I started teaching to help others discover what I have. Yoga helped me find a healthier body, healthier mind and a more loving and honest approach to life. I’ve graduated from teacher trainings with Clayton Horton at Greenpath Yoga and David Swenson. And, have completed the Advanced Teacher Training Program with YogaWorks for my E-RYT 500 certification. I completed the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy level I training. I also continue my education through workshops and trainings with senior teachers such as Maty Ezraty, David Williams, Richard Freeman, Jonny Kest, Ana Forrest and Sarah Powers. I teach yoga primarily in the San Francisco bay Area and lead yoga wellness retreats around the world with an emphasis on exploring and respecting the local history and culture.

“My advice on yoga is that if you feel good afterwards, then keep doing it” ~ David Swenson

Remote. Pristine. A little Slice of Paradise.

A tiny dot on the map of the Caribbean Sea, 43 miles off the coast of Nicaragua. Little Corn Island crystal clear turquoise sea, white sandy beaches, vibrant fringe reefs teeming with color and life. A unique island culture with smiles bigger than the night sky. And Yemaya, named for the African goddess of the sea, watching out over the sparkling Caribbean, waiting to welcome you to a very special place.

Our casual open-air thatched roof restaurant, set just above the Caribbean Sea, lets you to take in panoramic views while you drink and dine. Experience delightful service that is likely to be accompanied by stories of the Island from our thoughtful wait staff and bartenders. Perfect temperatures, remarkable views, Caribbean breezes and soft island music all set the tone for the ultimate island dining experience.
