I started practicing yoga when I was about 19 years old, as a way to get exercise without overdoing it, as I have had asthma my entire life. What I found was much more than physical! My seasonal depression lessened through savasana and a regular meditation practice, and I felt a lot stronger both physically and spiritually.
I decided to become an instructor in 2011 and have enjoyed sharing my yoga experience with my classes. It's truly amazing to experience your own journey and contribute to others' as well. I teach Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin yoga with a little Power inspired by Baron Baptiste and Ashtanga every so often, with a strong focus on getting to know the self through practice.
I'm currently expanding on my 200 hour base, and am in the midst of obtaining my 500 hour through a Yoga Alliance program at the Lotus Wellness Spot, where I'm deepening my knowledge and practice of Ashtanga, Trauma Yoga, Ayurveda, Kids Yoga, advanced anatomy and asanas, Yoga Nidra, and Yoga for the Individual.
