My motto is to “Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life.” I started Yoga in 2010 hoping to improve my flexibility. I enjoyed the healing effects yoga offered, but was most drawn to yoga's ability to calm and steady the mind. It taught me to to be present and to savor every moment. I was pleasantly surprised by how much yoga would change my life. I learned about the larger scope and significance of yoga…no longer just a physical exercise. I became eager to learn more and grow my own practice by studying with many different teachers, learning something from each.
I completed my 200 hour yoga certification in 2014 at Yoga Culture in Danbury. My philosophy as a teacher is to create an environment in which students are able to slow down and learn. I want to show students its not about simply moving through poses, but to give them a greater understanding of why we practice a pose a certain way, enabling them to challenge themselves while experiencing the deeply therapeutic effects of Yoga.
When not practicing yoga I spend time with my husband and 2 sons. My passions include: running, hiking & year round camping. I am a First Aid/CPR trained leader with my sons’ Boy Scout Troop.
