I lived in McCall, ID in 2003-4 and Shanti Yoga Studio set the foundation of a yoga practice in my life. It was my first "fitness" experience that worked in balance with my body and life- it brought down my stress level, taught me to listen within and be aware of my body and mind (instead of continuing to push it without listening!). Since 2010, I participated in yoga teacher training workshops and completed the 200HR training in 2014, studying with Debi Murphy at Shanti Yoga School in McCall, ID and Boise, ID. The teachers that most influence my practice are Erich Schiffman, Desikichar, and Baxter Bell. I enjoy many different practices and have enjoyed teaching vinyasa/flow type classes recently. I teach at Lewis-Clark State College, Children's House Montessori School, corporate settings and occasional retreats and outdoor classes. As I continue my yoga training in the future I look forward to exploring more meditation techniques, restortative yoga, partner yoga, prenatal and kids yoga!
