Not long ago, I would have told you that I began practicing yoga just prior to the birth of my son, sixteen years ago, but as I learned more about the practice, I realized that I've been doing yoga, to some extent, most of my life. The Asana practice came later. I began taking classes in my early twenties and always came back to yoga to help me through difficult times. At the time of my father's passing, my husband had a fateful accident that would change both of our outlooks on life forever. I had worked as a fitness instructor and was always intrigued with the practice of yoga, but at that time, it wasn't readily accessible. With a bit of divine intervention, I was blessed with the opportunity to delve deeper into the practice. I hopped on a plane to Costa Rica to embark on the journey of yoga teacher training and I haven't looked back since. I've never felt more alive than I do now and believe I've finally found my path. I am a wife and mother to two wild and soulful kids and we enjoy travelling, hanging out on the water and just enjoying life. Yoga is a huge part of me and I love the practice because there is no end to the learning. I find so much joy in teaching and learning from everyone who walks into my class. Thank you for allowing me to share in your practice!

Who knew there was a passionate yogi inside of me just waiting to get out? I certainly didn't. I was so out of shape, that even sleeping was no longer fun. It took an unexpected fall, me being face down in the mud, unable to get up on my own, for me to seek out yoga to help repair all the damage I had done to myself. I signed up for a beginner's series of classes and spent the first few weeks trying just not to die. I quickly discovered that yoga was exactly what I needed. Every day when I get on the mat, yoga meets me where I am. The mental benefits of taking time to quiet the thoughts and focus on the breath, have been as impactful as the all the Asana combined. Fast forward 15 months and,  with the encouragement and support of my fellow yogis, I've completely transformed my life. Along the way, my yogi friends convinced me to take yoga teacher training to enhance my own practice, and I discovered a profound desire to share my love of yoga with others. With an "always a student" mindset, I manifested a gong and continue to dig deeper into guided meditation and sound therapy. I get on my mat every day, set an intention, and go about trying to improve my mind, body, and soul through yoga.  I don't practice yoga, I try to live it. I'll be on my mat breathing, improving.... care to join me?
