I started my yoga practice in 1999 from a book called 'Moving into Stillness' by Erich Schiffmann. I attended my first Bikram class in 2000. I began a daily practice and while I attended many other classes and styles of yoga, I kept coming back to the hot 26 method. I attended my Teacher Training in the spring of 2005. After a rigorous 2 month training, I returned home and entered the Ashland Institute of Massage. After completing and graduating from that 6 month intensive, I became licensed in the state of Oregon and started teaching yoga and doing massage full time. I have attended countless studio based trainings, taken thousands of classes and have years of experience with all levels of student.
