I first started practicing yoga over a decade ago so that I could stretch and become more flexible. However, after taking my first class, I realized that it was so much more than bending and touching my toes. It was the first time that I had experienced complete stillness and calmness in my mind, and I just fell in love with it. As I continued my practice, I found that yoga gave me peace and emotional contentment while building physical strength and flexibility. Through my practice, I have gained balance in my life and harmony in my mind, body and spirit.
My passion for yoga led me to yoga teacher training. I completed my RYT-200 hour registered yoga teacher certification with Pro-Power Yoga in 2018. The 200-hour training gave me the tools and techniques to share my love of yoga with others. Since completing my 200-hour, I have continued my training in other types of yoga. I am certified to teach Yin (2019) and Restorative (2019). I am also certified as a Brain Longevity Specialist (2021) through the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation. I have also studied with specialized training in the areas of Yoga Anatomy and Physiology and Yin Yoga and Ayurveda. I love to challenge and empower my students. I love helping them to reach their emotional and physical goals and energizing them to develop and grow their own practice. As I tell my students in every class, remember to just breath.
