the instructor...





Working as a fitness instructor in 2006, I was intrigued with this thing called yoga. I took a few teacher training courses and began to incorporate bits and pieces of the practice into my classes, having no idea that we were barely scratching the surface. Yoga helped get me through my second pregnancy, when I felt helpless and needed an outlet for my stress and anxiety. As I practiced on and off throughout the years, deeper aspects of the practice began presenting themselves and kept me coming back. A decade later, following the death of my father and a subsequent life-altering brain injury experienced by my husband, yoga would be my saving grace. With a new outlook on life and the smacking realization of its fragility, I knew that I needed to make a change. At this point, I was working a tiring, thankless job just to get by, and knew that something had to give. This path was calling to me, and with overwhelming support from my friends and family, I decided to quit my job and embark on the journey of yoga teacher training. After learning as much as I could here, I would pack my bags and head out solo to Costa Rica for my intensive where I would eat, sleep and breathe yoga alongside a dozen others on this same path. The experience was life changing! I am so grateful for the way that this life has unfolded, allowing me to follow a road less travelled. My practice and teaching style are ever changing and evolving. I love sharing what I’ve learned and knowing that there is always so much more to learn. I’m so grateful for all of the teachers and lessons in my life, and appreciate learning from everyone who walks into my class. Thank you for allowing me to share in your practice!
