Welcome to my blog, So You Think You Can Yoga?® First, a bit about myself. I am a professional ballet dancer and registered yoga instructor from Los Angeles, CA. Now a bit about this blog. So You Think You Can Yoga?® is a unique potpourri of yoga, philosophy, anatomy, movement, dance and seemingly everyday experiences derived from my life as a movement professional. So You Think You Can Yoga?® is an evolution of one yogic thought, event or experience into the next. I hope you will join me as I embark on this yogic journey...who knows where we might end up!
