While trying to balance a busy work life with an additionally busy social life I found I was having a hard time finding my peace in this hectic world. That was until several years ago when a friend introduced me to yoga. I had always liked the idea but had never given it a shot myself until then. I found yoga to be calming, relaxing, and could feel the rest of the world melt away. It gave me a way to compartmentalize the rest of my mind and focus on myself.
After being a casual ‘Yogi’ for a few years, being especially frequent at unusual yoga events (my favorite being Beer Yoga; seeing as I consider myself a beer aficionado in my spare time), I decided I wanted to become more serious about this hobby. I have been a Zumba instructor for a few years, which I figured helps, but after starting teacher training, my passion for Yoga has grown.
My goal as a yoga instructor is for my students to be able to find what they are looking for when they enter the studio for the first or the hundredth time. From the yoga mat to the real world; whether it is to become stronger, find inner peace, or beginning their own fitness journey. No matter their starting point, no matter their level of fitness or physical ability, I want them to be able to flourish.
