My yoga journey began in 1999 when I bought a Rodney Yee VHS yoga video. I would practice yoga in my basement as a way to bring fitness and stress relief into my life. A couple of years later I joined a gym and practiced yoga. Boy, was I challenged! It was my first time being adjusted, cued and practicing with others.
This led me to seek out a yoga studio that was centered solely on yoga. Taking this path, I realized that this was what I needed to settle my restless, distracted mind. In 2009, hot Power Vinyasa Yoga became my practice of choice and transformed my life.
My style of teaching yoga is mindful, energetic and fun! I use vinyasas to warm up the body and mind for more challenging poses while helping my students find their edge. They learn to build confidence, become self-aware by staring fear in the face. I bring them to a place of stillness through yin postures for a release of their connective tissues or fascia. Yin yoga helps to calm the nervous system and open joints where most stress seems to be stored in the body. Overall I use the influences of power yoga and adapt it as needed for my students and clients because I believe that every “body” can do yoga!
I finally completed my 200-hour yoga teacher certification at Cleveland Yoga in 2013. The style in which I was trained is that of Baron Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga.
