I first discovered yoga in college doing fitness DVDs in my small dorm room. I was drawn to the focus on balancing mind and body. Since then, yoga has grown to more than just a physical practice – through yoga I have gained a better understanding of myself and the world around me. It has taught me how to build emotional strength, self-awareness, confidence, and to appreciate my body. You can read more about my experience going through teacher training in my post!
As a teacher, I strive to empower and inspire my students and help them discover what they are capable of. My goal is for each person to leave class feeling comfortable with themselves and confident about their own practice.
Come yoga with me! Check out my schedule to take a class.
