Namaste! If you are unfamiliar with this word or gesture, it represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. The gesture (palms together with a slight bow) is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another. Let me tell you about my journey to discover the divine in me which allowed me to finally see the divine in others.I endured various degrees of traumas in my younger years; some unfair, and honestly, some self-inflicted from confusion and pain. After years of counseling and medication, which I am not opposed to if appropriately prescribed and taken, I had an innate drive to take my own life into drive and start ?clean?. A beautiful soul introduced me to meditation and for the first time I felt free! With a lifetime of prayer under my belt from being raised in a private catholic school, meditation came as second nature. It deepened my relationships, strengthened my spirituality, heightened my sense of self, and gave purpose to a life I felt lost in. Providing me mental focus and clarity amongst the painful chaos, I was able to defeat depression and exponentially grow from the insecure timid teen I once was, to the proud headstrong woman I am today. My passionate course as an inspiring health guru had naturally guided me to yoga. Not the stretch and breathe once a week in a group class type of yoga- but the all-encompassing spiritual, physical, emotional, mental, experiential yoga; the kind of yoga that expands way beyond the mat. The deep rooted art of movement, breath work, and dedication that carries your spirit through mindfulness and compassion in everyday life. Once you experience the pure bliss that?s the light at the end of even the darkest loneliest most desperate tunnel, you too will understand, as I do, why yoga is more than just a fad exercise or something sexy to do. It can and will literally save or change your life.I have had the honor of practicing with and drawing inspiration from some of Yoga?s best known figures; starting with my dearest teacher?s, Emily Darling and Christy Burnette, to the internationally beloved Rama Jyoti Vernon, Tao Porchon-Lynch, Michael Joseph Levry, Max Strom, Allan Grompers, and more. With their combined wisdom, I?ve only begun my path of the eternal practice of yoga and only wish to inspire you towards your own greatness. I am beyond honored to have you take your first step with me... Are you ready?
