“Yoga teaches us to use the body as the bow, asana as the arrow and the soul the target” B.K.S Iyengar, Namaste
What got me into yoga? I started taking classes years ago at a local studio. I fell in love with the class, especially the breath work and meditation. The owners approached me and encouraged me to begin my yoga teacher certification. That was 12 years ago! It has been an amazing journey ever since. Yoga has changed my life in so many ways. It has been a constant struggle to quiet my mind and be present. I am definitely a “Yogi” work in progress. Yoga is a journey, both on and off the mat. I am proof that yoga keeps the body healthy and the mind calm. I always tell my students, if I can do it, so can you. There is always a way to make poses work for your body, mind and soul. I love how each student brings their own uniqueness to practice in every class. Yoga really is for everyone and every body.

Favorite Dream travel- I have the opportunity to travel this August with my family and a group of friends to France. We will begin in Normandy, then on to Paris. From there we will head to southern France and the Bordeaux area. I have never been abroad. This will be an exciting adventure. And I am so grateful to share this with my family and best friends.
