Shortly after the birth of my second child I was invited to take a Bikram Yoga class. This was my first “real” yoga experience. Needless to say, it was love at first breath! I am eternally grateful to my friends that brought me to yoga that day as my life has been forever changed and all because I simply said YES! I soon moved on to Power Vinyasa falling more passionately in love with the practice.
Though having been an athlete and playing a wide variety of sports throughout life nothing spoke passionately to me the way yoga does. After finding yoga I felt as if I had just truly learned how to breathe. Yoga offers an outlet for removing stagnant energy, opening the heart and finding balance. It is a time to play, to let go, to get messy, to express and to be free!
Continuing further in the journey I became RYT certified through Yoga Alliance upon completion of my first 200-hour training at Leap Yoga in Folsom, CA. I am also a certified Yin and LifePower™ Yoga teacher.
I am inspired by the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, the rhythms of the universe, mother nature and LOVE. My goal as a teacher is to empower my students and help them find their freedom through yoga in a safe and nurturing space.
When not teaching I keep busy as a mother to a beautiful son and daughter, a french bulldog and a leopard gecko. I am a devoted yoga student that enjoys exploring the world with my husband and children, the outdoors, scuba diving, biking, epicurean delights, practicing the piano, creating, having new experiences and always saying YES to life.
