My journey began in 2013, when I was asked to take a Belly Dancing class with a dear friend. While walking into the studio, I took a glance at the schedule and saw ‘Hot Yoga’ listed in big bold letters at 7PM on Thursday nights. I thought to myself, ‘I’ve always wanted to try Hot Yoga’. So, on Thursday at 7PM I did and immediately fell in love. Since that day I’ve continued to go to yoga at least once a week and after 2 years it began to increase to 2-3 times a week. It wasn’t long before I realized yoga was changing my life for the better, in more ways than one and soon enough it became a way of life for me.
After moving to Medina a few months later, I set out to find a studio closer to home and found Half Moon Yoga. Fully inspired by the teachings of Lisa Turner, I decided in 2016 to deepen my practice and enroll in a 200 RYT program and got certified under my beautifully gifted mentor, Kathleen Kossman. After signing up, everything seemed to fall right into place with my schedule and finances and at that moment, I knew the training was exactly where I needed to be for the next nine months. As my training continued, my love for yoga began to deepen as I gained this new-found confidence I never thought I’d find. Through this journey I’ve discovered loving the light within myself was what I needed to forgive and find the compassion I needed to move forward in life. Since becoming certified, I’ve been overflowing the nothing but joy and excitement to share my story and love for yoga. My love for yoga shines through my practice as well as my teaching and I look forward to spreading that love to as many people as possible in hopes that my passion inspires them. My classes challenge students to find the strength and confidence within, as well as their connection to the breath that will lead them through obstacles on and off the mat.
