I am listening. I am observing. I am growing. I am sharing. I am forever learning. I am transforming.
From a young age my imagination led me to see the world a little different. The grass wasn't just green, it was a million varieties of green particles that made up one blade. Trees weren't just trees, they had personalities, energy and emotions just like people. During my teenage years I began routinely exercising and eating healthy which led me to learn that nutrition and proper care of your body is vital to a long-balanced life. My passion for yoga became ignited when I had my children and has helped me grow stronger mentally, spiritually and physically. For me, yoga is a lifelong journey of self-discovery. My calling to teach and help others has always been a light inside waiting to shine to the world which eventually led me to receive my 200-hour RYT certification through Karma Yoga. From there I pursued further training in restorative yoga, hot yoga, power yoga, yoga for children, yin yoga, yoga for athletes and meditation. I went on to receive my 500-hour certification through the Hard and Soft Yoga Institution at Heartsong Yoga with Beryl Bender Birch and Sheila Magalhaes. This training introduced me to Suzanne Manafort, founder of the Mindful Yoga Therapy, who I receive a 15-hour certificate for Mindful Yoga Therapy. In addition to yoga I am also a level 2 Reiki practitioner and certified in Thai Yoga bodywork which I am continuing to study to achieve a 200-hour Thai yoga certification. The journey of life is a learning process and an exploration for both a teacher and a student. I love to get out into the community to connect and share yoga with as many people as possible. I encourage every student to allow the mind body connection to form organically and to become a student of their own internal teacher. My classes emphasize a judgement free space allowing students to focus on what they can do while tapping into the underlining possibilities. If I can reach one person in a crowd of one hundred, inspire one person to take a step closer to their true self, share information to spark someone’s inner fire, make one person feel empowered..... mission accomplished.
