Sparkle is a full time yoga teacher and massage therapist who lives in the San Francisco bay area.
“I am a believer! It is clear to me that yoga as a therapuetic art form, science, and philosophy can powerfully impact lives. I teach yoga because it feels like a real service; a real occupation that can lift spirits and heal. My heart tells me to practice yoga everyday, and I believe my heart is not alone. I try everyday to teach out of impeccable kindness and artistry. When I teach spontaneity often leads me straight into raw creativity, and on a good day it’s perfectly imperfect, just like life itself.”
Sparkle draws from studies in Anusara, Vinyasa, and many other styles of hatha yoga to create a compassionate and uplifting blend of vinyasa flow with pranayama and yogic philosophy; Each class is different, experiential, and inspired. Sparkle is also a licensed massage therapist and cites bodywork as a major influence on her teaching style. Sparkle hopes to present yoga exactly as she has experienced it: as a wellspring of creation, vitality, and hope.
Sparkle has taught in yoga studios, community colleges, universities and festivals since 2008, and since 2010 has taught in the San Francisco Bay Area.
