My personal yoga practice began in high school when I began taking classes within the Integral Yoga tradition. I loved my teacher and the people with whom I practiced deeply; as I grew, I found that no matter where I was in life, my yoga practice was there to help guide me back to stability.
I completed my RYT-200 certification with Karuna Yoga Teacher Training in 2012 and quickly became involved with the nonprofit Project Yoga Richmond. My experience with yoga and the love and spiritual happiness it brought me inspires me to share it with others: Through PYR, I led Yoga Nidra and Restorative yoga classes for the last 3 years. The benefits of meditation on mood and cognition are something I continue to study.
I also enjoy teaching to adolescents. In 2016, I had the opportunity to develop my experience working with teens by completing the Kripalu Yoga in the Schools 75-hour Teacher Training. Since then, I have taught students at Brook Road Academy and Fairfield Middle School in Richmond, VA.
Presently, I am preparing to earn an additional 300 hours to complete RYT-500 certification with the Integral Yoga Academy in Buckingham, VA.
