As a 40-something wife, daughter, mother, and full-time educator, the busyness of my professional and personal life had begun to take its toll on me. My physical health was declining, and the daily stresses of just surviving were draining the life out of me. I decided to try a yoga class, and nothing has been the same. My body is certainly healthier and stronger, but the calm and confidence that I’ve gained from my yoga practice has been even more transformational. Sure, my life is still full of stresses, but yoga has provided me with tools and space to find peace by being more deeply rooted in truth, growing in my faith, and finding gratitude for my many blessings (Colossians 2:7).
Unwrapping the gift of yoga is an on-going journey, but this journey is a blessing that I want to share with others in my community. I completed my RYT 200 level yoga teacher certification through Open Studio Yoga, Barre, and Mindfulness in 2018 so I can do just that! My decision to teach yoga has required risk-taking, courage, and a step of faith, but I am overflowing with thankfulness for the opportunities that it provides me to share with others the truth of our mind, body, and soul connections
My Teaching Style
I am a new instructor and still discovering my personal style, but I tend to plan vinyasa flow classes that build strength and balance rooted in the power of the breath. Modifications are always offered for varying levels and experiences so that all students can fully participate. Classes typically end with deep stretching and a time of final relaxation.
