“True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied.” — Aadil Palkhivala
I first starting practicing in the Fall of 2012. And soon fell in love with the physical and spiritual benefits I experienced each time I was on the mat. Mostly for my own use and somewhat looking ahead to my future I decided to become an instructor. It is my goal to provide classes in retirement communities, senior centers, and nursing homes while keeping myself in tune as I face the aging process.
I began my instructor journey in the Summer of 2014 completing Level 1. Nervous yet excited to share my practice I “dug my heels in the mat” and led my first class in January 2015.
I currently substitutes for the Gentle Yoga class at Peace Tree Yoga and help out at various other off-site locations.
In addition to Level 1 training, I’ve completed Level 3, and Senior Yoga training. As time permits I continue to expand my skill and knowledge to share with others.
Yoga truly is a way of life in Mind, Body and Spirit.
