My love for yoga began while training for a marathon as I attended a “Yoga for Runners” class in Houston and quickly fell in love with it! My instructor inspired me where I wanted to learn more about the history, challenged me to grow in my own practice and one day be able to share what I have learned with others. After the marathon, I began to branch outside of Vinyasa and started to enjoy hot, Iyengar and Power.
I’ve always been interested in the more athletic, physical side of yoga. Before I recently had my son, I taught yoga classes at Odessa CrossFit. The classes provided mobility improvements and gains in flexibility to counter balance with the weight lifting. I loved introducing yoga to the athletes and ultimately observed them as they grew in their practice.
Yoga will always be a passion of mine and having the ability to teach it to others makes it even that much more special.
