Acknowledgements & Lineages
I live, practice massage, and teach yoga on unceded Duwamish land.
All the knowledge I share I owe to the generosity of teachers who have educated me and the ancient lineages that have developed and evolved the practices of yoga and bodywork.
The beginnings of Yoga were developed by the Indus-Sarasvati civilization in the Indus Valley (now India) over 5,000 years ago. The practice has been passed down from teacher to student since then. My training and practice fall under the ancient lineage of Hatha Yoga.
Massage and bodywork have also been practiced for thousands of years, in different styles across the globe. I practice modalities that have been influenced by many lineages.
Thank you to my yoga teachers:
Susanne Hutchinson, Kristin Reed, Amanda Mitchell, Shubha Simhadri, and many more.
Thank you to my massage teachers:
Marian DiPerna, Sequoia Rolfes-Haase, Jessica Brammer, Robert Zelesko, Bevin Keely, and Katrina Koleto.
Finally, thank you to my peers:
Abby Brinkman, Molly Bulger, Mickey Leytze, Kara Maran, and many more.
