I took my first 90-minute yoga class in January 2013 when
I started Baron Baptiste’s ’40 Days to a Personal Revolution’ and was hooked. I had been searching for a
style of yoga that tested my mind while finding an athletic routine I could maintain throughout my life. The power vinyasa
flow combined with heat met my physical needs…freeing my mind was the next challenge.
Feeling overwhelmed navigating the system of special education
for many years, yoga brought a ‘meditation in motion’ quality to my life that felt grounding amidst the internal
chaos. The analogies of yoga off the mat meet me daily, especially using something as simple as breathing exercises to help
me become less reactive. A new lightness began to resurface.
After ’40 Days,’ I was hungry for more. Six months later I enrolled in a teacher
training program with the intent to further my new practice. During a reading in savasana, I knew I wanted to share inspiration
in my community. In April 2014, I graduated as a 200 RYT rooted in the Baptiste methodology. I have continued my yoga education
with True North Alignment, Being of Power, Advanced Art of Assisting, and have studied under Baron Baptiste in his five-day
immersion, ‘Foundations in Action,’ and completed Level 1 and Level 2 weeklong intensives. I stand on the shoulders
of the teachers before me.
I am grateful to share my passion of yoga while teaching
beginners classes, slow flow, power vinyasa, and restorative yoga. Living the dream with my husband, teenage daughter, and
yellow lab. I share the enthusiasm of my practice in my classes, encouraging students to see their hidden strengths while
challenging them to reach beyond their perceived limitations.
