Movement is life. Life breathes movement.
My love for movement started at a very young age. I came from studio dance, drill and dance team, and hip hop dance groups. Throughout the years, my romance with movement evolved into art, self-expression, and community building. I came to yoga specifically after a human rights trip to the Philippines. The resistance that I experienced when I was with the Lumad peoples of southern Philippines is the spirit that I try and carry throughout my day to day life.
I received my 200 HR at YoYo Yogi in Portland, Oregon. I have also taken courses on biomechanics, building resilience through trauma, chair yoga, yin yoga, hands-on adjustment, at Bhaktishop, Love Hive, and Living Yoga. My teaching is influenced by vinyasa, power vinyasa, and yin incorporating trauma-sensitive and culturally-sensitive lens.
In my spare time, I love to hang out with my 5lb dog named Pancit. Ahimsa is demonstrated through being active in community organizing, advocating for marginalized communities.
I am a part of the Humans of Color Movement Alliance, International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines PNW, and am on the board of Foundation for Philippine Progress.
