“Strength and flexibility are valuable, but without balance weaving them together, you will fall short. Everything is engineered so there is balance, balance is the key to life.” – CYBERYOGA

I was born in Ohio and raised in Los Angeles. My mother was a talented singer and wanted to pursue the dream in Hollywood, so she moved us to LA when I was two. Growing up, I didn’t really have any strong father figures in my life so I was inspired by superheroes and classic Kung Fu and martial art films.

Breakdancing was extremely popular during this time, but I never really got into it. Years later, I watched the film Beat Street and Breakin and was inspired to learn how to breakdance. Around this time we moved to Orange County and I remember going to a mall to watch breakers and I was simply mesmerized. On a whim, I jumped in the circle and tried out some moves, and everyone loved it! The positive feedback I got that day filled me with motivation to explore more. It was in that moment I knew that I’d be dedicated to street dance for life. Thanks to the Law of Attraction and simple synchronicity, I was able to find my fellow OC breakers and the rest was history.

After years of breakdancing I brought acrobatics and hand balancing into my training which deepened my agility and strength. About 15 years into breaking, which is an extremely aggressive and rigorous form of training, I was exposed to yoga which opened my eyes to a whole new level of balance and possibilities. I was more mindful in all areas of my life and it showed in so many ways. After years of practicing yoga, I began to integrate all my training and passion, and CYBER Yoga was born.
