My yoga journey began 10 years ago, but I didn't become really dedicated until I began having terrible panic attacks in 2009. Of course my doctor's wanted to prescribe medication, but I knew there was a better way. I found that by keeping a regular yoga practice I was slowly able to get my panic attacks under control, until eventually they became almost non-existent. That's when I realized my real passion in life, using yoga to help others who may dealing with the same issues. I became certified through Asheville Yoga Center in 2015 training with Stephanie Keach, Kimberley Puryear, Michael Johnson, Joe Taft, Sierra Hollister, and Ryan Conrad. I have been an instructor at Uptown Yoga in Morehead City, NC. since I received my certification. I enjoy teaching various styles of yoga, keeping a balanced blend of yin and yang. Yoga is an ever evolving learning experience for me and I continue to educate myself and work towards my 500 hour certification. In October of 2016 I became a certified Reflexologist,training with Amanda Todd in eastern North Carolina, and on November 1, 2016 I became a Licensed Broga® Yoga instructor, the first in my area. I enjoy seeing the effect that Yoga has on other's and knowing that I am able to help them on their journey.
