I started teaching yoga in 2007 after several years of experiencing the life changing benefits through physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual growth that yoga brings. I continued my yoga education and received my 500 hr yoga certification in 2018. I love teaching yoga because it creates a strong community of like minded souls who are eager to tap into “SELF” and grow. If you aren’t growing then you become stagnant. Yoga has so many layers and limbs to explore that the learning never stops. It is the true evolution life and the ability to connect mind, body and spirit.

Things about me:

I have two daughters, both in middle school

I love dogs: I have three

Why Yoga? 
Yoga is a great way to get your body moving at your own pace and as you get better your practice gets more challenging- yoga meets you where you are.  
   
What is your favorite class format and why? 
Hot Yoga for sure! I always think “the hotter the better….”plus I like the poses and the flow of the class.  Nothing beats walking out drenched on a cool day.
  
How has Yoga made a difference in your everyday life? 
I feel like it makes my day complete, it improves my concentration and perspective.  We have great instructors that encourage the evolution of mindfulness.
