I found yoga as a way to heal. Initially finding the time on my mat as a physical workout, it morphed into a practice that helped me to restore mentally and emotionally.
The profound effects yoga had on me sparked a desire to spread my passion for yoga to everyone I meet. I enrolled in yoga teacher training and obtained my RYT 200 certification with Yoga Alliance in December 2016, and completed a second 200 hour in July 2017. I have been teaching since February 2017 and continue to further my education. I became certified under the Prison Yoga Project to provide yoga to victims of trauma in June 2017. I am continually learning and refining my teaching being under the tutelage of Danni Pomplun, who I receive a lot of influence and guidance from.
I obtained my RYT 500 certification in 2018 through Jason Crandall.
My classes encourage you to feel your body, with an emphasis on using your breath to feel every inch. Instead of going through the motions, I encourage you to be present and allow for a mind-body connection. You will also be exposed to my (bad) humor.
My teaching philosophy:
Breath is a guide, movement as medicine.
I believe that yoga is a gateway into reclaiming the mind-body connection that is often lost through busy lifestyles, trauma, stress, and other demands of life. Aside from a physical practice, yoga helps you discover how resilient you really are, be that mentally, spiritually, or emotionally.
See you on your mat!
