"About 16 years ago I was experiencing some stress from being a new mom, and I was looking for a way to reduce that stress. My mother practiced yoga years ago, and she suggested that I give it a try. I didn’t know anything about yoga or what to expect, but I decided to take my mother’s suggestion.
My first yoga class was a Power Vinyasa class, and to my surprise it was a lot more physical than I had expected. At first I kept coming back because it was a challenge, and I felt great afterwards. I was also learning how to manage stress through breath and focus.
The more I practiced, the more I learned, and I knew then that I wanted to share yoga with others. I decided to go to teacher training, and in 2003 I received my 200 hour Power Yoga certification, and I have been teaching every since. Through the years yoga has taught me to always keep striving, and to be the best version of myself.
I believe there is a connection between the mind and body. A strong body equals a strong mind, which also builds confidence. There is never judgement or competition on the yoga mat. It’s a space to practice self care and love through movement, breath and stillness. As a teacher I practice this on my mat and implement this in my teaching.
Sixteen years ago when I walked into my first yoga class, I had no idea I was going to find something that would change my life. It has taught me to be a calmer, more confident, happier person. My passion is to keep learning, and to share what yoga has done for me with as many people as I can."
