Yoga has been a part of my life for over 10 years and I am passionate about helping others learn how to over come and manage their own individual physical and mental health challenges.
After a serious car accident in ’08 and subsequent spine surgery in ’09, I honestly didn’t think I would ever be able to tie my own shoes up again – let alone practice yoga! Yoga practice has taught me how resilient I am and just how willing the body is to heal if we give it the time and space it needs. We must live united in mind, body and spirit if we wish to heal our bodies and reclaim our lives after a traumatic event or disease.
I am a creative and outgoing person who enjoys laughing at myself and making others giggle. Classes with me are light-hearted and fun, but also reflect a strong sense of alignment and encouragement to modify postures and/or use props.
My passion as a yoga teacher is to encourage every student to move with individual integrity and to “feel the pose” vs trying to “look like the pose.” My hope is that students feel encouraged, safe and confident during their class and leave feeling refreshed, balanced and grounded.
