With over 20 years experience as a social service volunteer and professional, I understand that being of service to others is an enormous privilege as well as a responsibility. I strive to provide a safe-enough space for my clients to feel both nurtured and challenged in finding their own internal source of wisdom and healing.
I am a registered yoga teacher (RYT-200, trained through Niroga’s Integral Health Fellowship). I am also a graduate of East Bay Meditation Center’s Commit to Dharma program. I lead community yoga classes in various settings and for organizations such as the East Bay Meditation Center and Spirit Rock Meditation Center.
I am also a Mind-Body Health Instructor in the Kaiser Permanente Behavioral Health Education Department and a Yoga Instructor for the UC Berkeley WorkFit Program.
I identify as a queer cisgender man of color and second-generation Salvadoran-Iranian. I am bilingual Spanish-speaking.
