I was first introduced to yoga at the recommendation of a coach who thought it might help with balance, flexibility, and body awareness to support my training as a Division I collegiate swimmer. I hated it, but still found myself in a sweaty room once a week, struggling through 75 minutes of total torture - an endeavor that lasted about 8 months. Two years later, I was back on the mat as part of 30-day inpatient eating disorder treatment program. It was then that I saw for the first time how impactful and empowering the practice could be. Through several years of committed practice, I was able to feel at home in my body for the first time in my life, and learned to take responsibility for my own health and happiness. I enrolled in my first 200-hour Teacher Training in 2011.Since my first training in Knoxville, TN I've taken Level 1 and 2 trainings with the Baptiste Institute, and worked as a production coordinator for all the Baptiste Trainings. I've also practiced under Paige Elenson, Kiersten Mooney, Phillip Clift, Bryan Kest and Seane Corne. Practicing and teaching yoga has given me tools to live in the best way possible - physically, mentally, and emotionally. I currently live, work, and play in Park City, but I am so madly in love with the community of Salt Lake Power Yoga. The people, teachers, and energy here are magnetic, and its a Tribe that I am so grateful to be a part of.
