If there has been one thing in my life that has brought me peace of mind and happiness, it is yoga. Growing up in the Sierra Nevadas, I have always been an advocate of health and movement and yoga fits perfectly into these aspects of my life. Yoga is a wonderful tool that helps us become acutely aware of our bodies so we can learn where we need more balance, stability and flexibility. I love how the physical practice of yoga goes so deep that it starts to trickle into the heart and soul, letting you open up in ways that you never could have imagined. If it weren't for yoga, I would be a completely different person than who I am today. I found it as a confused teenager in high school and it helped ground me and let me see my Self for who I truly am. Since then, I have incorporated yoga into my weekly routine, exploring different styles throughout my college years. Since going through Yoga Centre's Teacher Training in 2012, I have become passionate about sharing the beautiful subtleties of yoga. In my classes, my main focus is on alignment to help keep every body safe as we balance, strengthen and stretch so you come out of class with a heightened awareness of your mind and body and an elevated feeling of well being.
