My yoga journey began over 6 years ago at the recommendation of my Physical Therapist due to on-going running injuries. My gym offered yoga and I found myself becoming a regular at some of the classes. With some a little bit of “peer pressure” I was persuaded to try another local studio where I found a greater appreciation for yoga. During this same time some friends who were out of state through Facebook posts realized we all had started practicing yoga. One of us made a suggestion to do 30 day yoga challenge, each time we practiced, we posted on Facebook that we had completed that day’s yoga practice holding each other accountable. I thought I was already hooked with a healthy addiction to yoga, but that 30 day challenge sparked my curiosity as I started to see shifts in my life. I began to find ways to learn more about yoga.
Fast forward a few years I found myself on my mat at Salt Lake Power Yoga. The flow and the heated practice felt amazing in my body. At SLPY I found what I was looking for: a practice that challenges me physically, emotionally, and spiritually to find my edge so that I can continue to grow and be more fully present in my life and for the people in my life.
With no real desire to teach, Jen Reuben kept suggesting I consider teaching. With some hesitation I started teaching and completed my Level 1 Baptiste Training in June 2013. My intention for each class is to create a powerful experience through an invigorating practice with movement and breath. My classes are rigorous and fun, working out both body and mind. I am lucky that I get to share my love of yoga and this life-changing practice as an instructor at SLPY. I am continually inspired by our commUNITY here at SLPY and learn from all of you. Hope to see you soon in the studio and on your mat getting your sweat on!
