My exploration into yoga began in 2001 at Harmony Yoga Spokane with Alison Rubin, E-RYT 500. The serenity and joy I experienced after practice instantly drew me in and I continued to study with Alison for a number of years. Her focus on alignment melded with yogic philosophy set the foundation for the strong practice I now have.
In 2008 I began studying Forrest Yoga, an intense and therapeutic practice that truly resonated with my body. It was through this practice that I began to uncover that place of wisdom that resides within each of us. In 2012, I completed my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Harmony Yoga and began teaching Vinyasa Flow classes there in July of 2012.
In 2014 I completed a 30-hour Baptiste Foundations of Flow training and have attended two Forrest Yoga workshops in 2012 and 2013 respectively. I find the subject of yoga infinitely fascinating and continue to practice Forrest Yoga, as well as Vinyasa Flow, Bikram, Baptiste and Iyengar-based yoga. My style of teaching incorporates an eclectic mix of core work, breath awareness and vinyasa flow – a moving meditation to access the mind-body-spirit connection.
