Tai resides in Charlotte, NC where she lives, breathes and sleeps her yoga. Tai received her 500 hour certification under the tutelage of Johnna Smith and later continued her studies and received 200 more hours of certification with Baron Baptiste at his Level 1 and Level 2 training as well as completed her Prenatal Certification with Amani Murray Jackson. Seeking a deeper practice, Tai fell in love with Jivamukti Yoga, pursued and completed her 300+ hour Jivamukti Certification in May of 2011 under the direct guidance of founders Sharon Gannon and David Life and then went on to complete her 800 hour Jivamukti certification in June of 2012 under the mentorship of Advanced Jivamukti Certified teacher Sangeeta Vallabhan. An avid lover and practitioner of martial arts, Tai sought to blend the two worlds and went to study and train with Liz Arch in LA, completing her certification in Primal Yoga Flow which blends yoga with tai-chi, Kung Fu and Qigong. Tai holds a BA in dance performance and has an eager appetite for finding new ways to connect to the soul through sutric movement and devotional teachings while weaving the thread of pure bhakti throughout the practice. Tai’s classes are known for being deep, intentional and up lifting. Tai bows to the precious teachers in her life, those who have come before, those who will come after and above all to the teacher who resides within.
