Who is Audrey?
My desire is to awaken balance, to give you the tools for a deeper connection to the Divine, to the world around you and within you, inspiring you and those you come in contact with, to live from the truest, most genuine, and authentic part of your Self. Through the pleasure and fun of the yogic journey, together, we can build loving kindness, empathy, compassion, and strength, for others, and maybe more importantly for our Self.
I teach Private and Group yoga, Paddleboard Yoga, Meditation, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Restorative Yoga, Ecstatic Dance, Pranayama, and I host Retreats, near and far, all in a therapeutic style tailored to you, my student, and the season in which we find ourselves. Sometimes it’s fun and playful, sometimes it’s deep and real, sometimes it’s sensual and flirty, but it’s always true and strong, compassionate and loving. I blog, write for publications, and I’m a sponsored athlete with Raw Revolution and Glide Paddleboards. I love green tea and kombucha and you’ll usually find me adventuring into and within the inner sanctuary inside or outdoors. I am a stage 3 ovarian cancer survivor since 2002 and as such, I know what’s important and I live with a fervor for play and God, and in both a lighthearted and genuine depth. Yoga is a lifestyle for me and one I am happy to share with all who want to come along for the ride! It has been a significant tool for me to remain cancer free and to live my best life possible.
I began teaching yoga in 2010 and completed my initial Yoga Teacher Training in Bali. I am now an Experienced 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT200) and have furthered my yoga teacher training with Yoga Therapy and Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Yoga. I’ve been an EMT on an ambulance and in the ER, a ski patroller in Southern California, I am a lifeguard and have guarded at oceans, lakes, and pools since 2005, and I am a SUP instructor. I graduated University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and an English emphasis, minoring in journalism and communication.
