My yoga journey began in 2002, when I signed up for an introductory Hatha yoga series. I quickly fell in love with yoga and discovered it was exactly what I needed.
Slowly yoga began to open my body, quiet my mind and heal my aliments – all while teaching me so much about myself. I felt a shift in my entire being and became more dedicated to my practice; opening up to meditation, I began to discover the inner-peace my yoga teachers spoke of.
After years in a very hectic advertising & marketing career, I listened to my inner calling and in 2009 completed my Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training and haven’t looked back since. By 2010, I was teaching yoga full time and in 2011 I completed an additional 200hr Sattva Yoga Teacher Training.
My philosophy is to slow down, be kind to oneself and most of all feel good – breathe and relax. My mantra of Shanti (Peace), Kshama (Patience), Abhyasa (Practice) is a reminder of some of the gifts yoga has brought into my life. I believe yoga transforms us from the inside out. As a teacher and forever student, my mat is my sacred space and where I can show up exactly as I am, and it’s perfect.
Yoga has truly changed my life; it has taught me to be patient, appreciate every moment, and listen to the wisdom of my body and to trust. Yoga has provided me with tools to steady my mind, feel grounded and peaceful, as I navigate through life.
For many of us, yoga begins with the physical practice then shifts into something much more profound – I believe this shift is what keeps us coming back to our mats. I am so grateful to share this beautiful union of body, breath and mind; my hope is to teach from my personal experience and provide guidance to my students as they embark upon their own yoga journey.
