I began my yoga journey in the late 1990’s, however back then, I did not realize that I was on a journey. I came to the mat for the first time in my late 30’s when an Aerobics Instructor introduced yoga to our class. Over the past two decades, I have continued to practice, seeking out classes at gyms, studios, and at times practicing on my own. While the busyness of life overwhelmed me, I really didn’t think of yoga as anything more than an addition to my fitness routine. In recent years, I began to realize that yoga must be pretty important to me. I began to attend more and different classes, and allow myself to immerse into the yoga community. Curiosity and desire fueled my interest into passion. In May of 2018 I completed the Yoga Alliance 200-Hour RYT Program.
Currently, I am participating in a Mentorship Program designed to deepen my knowledge of asana practice, anatomy, the mind-body connection, teaching skills and yogic study. Continuing my journey with a beginners mind and an eagerness to learn, I plan to engage in educational opportunities and eventually attain the 500-Hour RYT Certification.
I desire to teach yoga and bring passion and authenticity to my class while creating a safe and nurturing environment. I enjoy Slow Flow and Yin Yoga styles, focusing on safe alignment, strength and stability, along with meditative practices, breath awareness and improved flexibility.
