But really my teaching is about you. It's about sharing yoga with you, feeling your energy, hearing your breath, being mindful of your needs and aware of your joy. I love that folks leave practice feeling better than when they walked in. Love the connection of energy that happens in practice, even as we are all on our own mats and in our own moment. I love to see you build strength physically and mentally and love serving as a guide for this.
Yoga helps us evolve physically, spiritually and socially to the greater good of all. I'm looking forward to evolving with you both on and off the mat.
I completed the Mindful Motion 200 hour teacher training in 2011, which truly opened me to the power of yoga. Three months later I became certified, through the CPF, to teach yoga to the cancer community. In the fall of 2012, I attended a week long Yoga as Medicine seminar taught by Dr. Tim McCall at Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville in Virginia. Then in 2013, I completed 100 hours of yoga therapy training in Jacksonville.
When not in the yoga studio, I can usually be found out in nature looking at birds. My birding has taken me to nine countries and almost every state in the union. Being in nature and focused on finding birds is like yoga, one must be in the present moment to be successful.
I am honored to share yoga with you in this beautiful and compassionate studio. It is my goal that my students leave class relaxed and renewed. I hope to see you soon.
