Do you want to do yoga but aren't sure how?
If you want to start practicing yoga, but have no idea where to start, you’re not alone.
Have you ever felt:
confused about how to start practicing yoga?
embarrassed to join a class?
stumped about how to “find your flow” when practicing yoga?
unsure of yourself in class (like you’re out of place)?
like classes are too advanced for you?
like you look ridiculous in a pose?
like you’re not flexible enough for yoga?
If you answered YES to any of the above, you’re in the right place.
Despite your best efforts, it just seems like you can’t find the right information for you. Meanwhile others seem to effortlessly hop on their mats and flow.
What’s the deal?
You watch other yogis on Instagram and YouTube and wonder if you could ever move like that too. You know it’s something you really want to do, if only there were a simple place to begin that didn’t require hours of your week and endless research.
The problem is: A lot of beginners have some pretty harmful beliefs about yoga. Here are some of the most harmful:
“I don’t look like 'them' so I must not be doing it right.”
“You need to be flexible to do yoga - I can’t even touch my toes!”
- “I don’t have a lean, yoga body.”
- “Everyone is going to be looking at me.”
- “I don’t have time to commit to a 1 hour class multiple days a week.”
- “I can’t afford a yoga membership right now.”
But why are these beliefs so dangerous? Because they will keep you stuck. They hold you back from getting your feet wet and actually experiencing yoga.
How do I know? Because I've been in your shoes. I know how it feels.
When I decided I wanted to start doing yoga, I was lost and confused. I kept looking in a thousand different places for a few simple answers, like:
- What kind of class should I take?
- Do I need to know every pose to start?
- What are those crazy Sanskrit words they say?!
- What am I supposed to do before and after class to get the most out of it?
- How do I start learning at home?
- What kind of mat should I buy?
And on and on and on….
I just kept thinking to myself...
“Will I look stupid?
“What if I do it wrong and the teacher calls me out?”
“What if someone makes fun of me?”
“I can’t go to a class until I know what I’m doing, which is going to take too much time to learn, so I’ll actually never feel confident enough to go to a class”
I couldn’t seem to find what I wanted to know in one place. It was frustrating and intimidating.
I felt really overwhelmed.
I tried practicing at home over going to a class, but the videos I found were confusing. I felt like I was wasting time not understanding what was actually going on
But I persisted because I knew yoga was for me, somehow, some way. I knew that this practice was something I needed. I knew it was a path for me to take better care of myself, something that would give me more mindfulness, more mobility, and more overall wellbeing.
Through years of practice, I eventually found a way to get on my mat on a regular basis. This eventually led me to certify as a yoga teacher myself. Now I can hop on my mat, create my own flows and feel comfortable in my own skin both at home and in a studio.
But I also realized: you don't need to be a yoga teacher to find that confidence in your practice.
I don’t want you to feel stuck and lost for years like I did. That's why I specialize in helping beginners just like you fall in love with yoga, too. Because the truth is, yoga is for everybody and should be easily accessible if someone chooses to explore it.
You just have to start. Exactly where you are.
Decide to begin right now. And begin again, every day.
Because this practice is more than just rolling out your mat and attending a regular Monday night class. This practice is transformative and will follow you into your daily life.
You will start to feel more confident in your presence. More centered and grounded in your decisions. Stress will decrease, and clarity will increase. You will be able to show up in the world in a much bigger way.
You'll be able to step into any studio or any class and immediately feel confident in whatever comes your way.
You'll no longer feel like you have to compare yourself to others. That means you can finally enjoy practicing in a group setting because it adds to your experience (instead of taking away from it).
And most importantly, you'll stop struggling to move with ease. Instead you'll feel completely at home in your body.

Please know that I’m not a 10,000 hour trained guru. In fact, just a few years ago I was afraid to go to a yoga class. But after my first teacher training program I realized that I could help people who were just a few steps behind me better than anybody.

There are two different levels of yoga basics to choose from:
Yoga basics was created to give you the resources you need, but I can’t make you do the work.
Don’t make the mistake of spending hours searching YouTube for a beginners video or guessing at the risk of injuring yourself. Yoga Basics shares everything you need to know about getting into a pose to creating your own flows (whether you’re alone or in a class).
If you ignore your desire to start yoga because you don’t know where to start, then you’ll never learn. What most people do when facing this new journey is get stuck in one studio or to one teacher and never discover all of the possibility the world of yoga has to offer.
It’s okay if you’re still a little doubtful…
In case you’re feeling nervous, let me clear up some questions you might be thinking….
How is this program different from other beginner's programs out there?
While a lot of other options out there are just an eBook or video, Yoga Basics is both and more. With yoga basics you get clear and precise instruction every day to help you understand how to start doing yoga. You won't just be looking at a pose and trying to do it - hoping that it's "right". In Yoga Basics we break down a few poses at a time and check in to really questions how we feel in that pose and what's happening in our body. There are eBooks (and books) out there starting at $34.99, but what they don't give you is a sense of support or further information beyond the book.
How much time a day does this take?
Yoga basics videos are anywhere from 5 - 30 minutes max. (with the exception of the pose library which we break up over 3 weeks). Each day’s tasks are short and simple. You can devote as little or as much time as you need to get through the work. You will get a daily email and a weekly webpage with all of the resources throughout the program.
What if I get behind and can’t catch up?
There are 2 rest/exploration days each week to catch up, take a break or dig deeper on your own terms. Plus, you have access to yoga basics forever, so no rush.
I’m not flexible/have some physical constraints that may stop me from doing this program...
Always, always consult your physician before starting a new program.
There are many modifications and variations of poses that you can explore depending on your physical state. Be open to the fact that your “said pose” may not look like someone else’s and that’s 100% normal. This program is NOT tailor made and is generalized for anyone in good standing health to begin. Use your best judgement and understand that I am not liable for any injury that occurs during the program.
I need more support and guidance through this journey. I don’t want to dive in without talking to a teacher and understanding how to figure out what’s best for me.
I have an exclusive 1-on-1 pricing model that allows for you to contact me personally and set up two video phone calls with me to personalize your journey further. (please scroll down for pricing)
I don’t have space in my home to do yoga.
I encourage you to get curious and creative (safely) about how you might make space for your practice. Whether it’s inside or at a park, there’s always space if you create it. And, not having space in your life could be a reflection of a bigger block you may be ignoring ;)
