After practicing yoga for many years on and off, I dove into yoga more fully in 2015 to fully take ownership of my physical wellness. A journey towards physical improvement led me to learn to deal with stress in a more positive manner and it just brought more emotional balance to my life. Realizing the positive physical and mental effects of yoga inspired me to want to share yoga with others and I completed my 200 hr Yoga Teacher Certification through Yoga Alliance with Tracey Ecclestone .
Since then I have continued my journey of learning. I am obsessed with learning how the body moves and the mind works. This has led me to training in Somatic Flow with James Knight, Thai Yoga Massage with Deanna Villa, Yoga Nidra with Stasia Bliss, Certification in Yoga for Back Pain and Yoga for Osteoporosis, Facilitating Lifelong Mobility with Tom Myers, Yoga for Soothing the Nervous System with Judith Hanson Lasiter, Therapeutic Chair Yoga with Tracey Ecclestone, Qi Gong for Health & Healing with Lee Holden, Mom & Baby Moga®, Yoga for Pelvic Health and Hot Stone Restorative Certification.
I believe that yoga is one of the greatest tools for supporting physical, mental and emotional wellness. I strive to make yoga accessible to everyone. Yoga is not about trying to wrap your leg around your head. It is about learning tools to deal with stress. It is about growing stronger physically. And it is about keeping your body moving and flexible. As you can see I love so much about yoga as I feel it is the whole package and I hope in my classes to inspire that same love for yoga in others. My official motto in class is "Be Yourself So Fully That Everyone Else Feels Safe To Be Themselves Too". I hope to create a sense of welcome and community in my classes where we can share a few laughs and continue to grow and learn together.
