Health and wellness has been an important part of much of my adult life. I have always enjoyed an active lifestyle, and even though I dabbled in yoga over the years, taking a class here and there, nothing really stuck. I went to my first class at SLPY in 2013 and didn’t love it. However, I went back because I realized that the modes of fitness I enjoyed were taking a toll on my mobility. I went to yoga for the “stretch” and to supplement fitness activities that were already working to keep me in great physical shape. I found so much more than the increased mobility I was after. I found a deep soul connection with myself that I wasn’t even aware I was lacking. As my practice grew, so did my curiosity about how yoga could heal both physical and mental ailments.
I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training at SLPY in 2015. Practicing and teaching yoga has become such an important part of my health and wellness. Yoga has helped me to heal my own soul through some very difficult times. I’ve come alive. I’ve learned the practice of real self-love and care: mind, body, and spirit. I am working to always be the best version of myself and to live authentically in each moment, and I want to share that with others. My classes offer a safe, fun-loving environment that promotes self-discovery, curiosity, healing, and growth. I enjoy arranging perfect playlists for music classes to touch your soul and accompany your practice.
In addition to my yoga practice, I incorporate CrossFit and swimming into my regimen to stay physically fit. I enjoy spending as much time outdoors as possible, hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, snowboarding, attending outdoor concerts, and walking my dogs. I like to travel and experience new places. When I’m not teaching yoga, I work as a mechanical designer/engineer and, most importantly, I am the mother of two fantastic young men who light up my world.
I look forward to seeing you in class.
