why do you love yoga?
my yoga journey began in 2008. one day I woke up with serious back pain, and realized that I had spent the last year doing nothing but going to work and sleeping, attempting to heal and grieve a loss that I still cope with every day. in attempt to alleviate that physical pain, I went to my first yoga class. and then I went to another. and the journey continued. step by step yoga provided the bridge through which I could come back to life and continue forward, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. that's why I love yoga. yoga is whatever you need it to be. it is a bridge and a path.
I completed yoga teacher training in 2014, intending only to advance my own practice and never to actually "teach." the path surprised me again, however. I learn so much from each and every participant in a class. it truly is a joy and a privilege to instruct, and brings me into the present in a way few other things can.
what can we expect from your class?
students should expect to be challenged with me, but perhaps not in the way they expect. we are here to feel stronger, lighter, and a sense of freedom difficult to achieve through other means. to me that means having fun and being joyful! we'll work from the outside in with the postures, the inside out through our awareness, and meet in the middle through our breath. the only thing required is that you show up, breathe, and begin to open up to the knowledge that you truly are powerful beyond measure.
