I'm So Happy You Stopped By
One of the most amazing things about yoga is that you don't have to be great to start, you just have to start to be great. You don't have to have a background in dance or gymnastics, you just have to be curious and be willing to try new things without judgment. I belive with yoga, there is no destination, only an exciting journey ahead.
My yoga journey
I have always been a busy person with an active mind. I grew up participating in sports – I must have tried nearly every offering in my school. I went on to study editorial journalism in college, and during those four years, wasn’t as active as I would have preferred. Post college, I quickly found myself seeking different styles of workouts to feel good physically.
It took a friend two years of urging me to try a yoga class before I finally set foot in a studio. After about six months of practicing yoga, I realized that it had an effect on me that was far greater than physical. It calmed my mind in a way no other form of physical movement had before. My stressful job became manageable.
My practice and my teaching are ever evolving. While vinyasa yoga is my favorite style of yoga to both practice and teach, I have studied many different methods of yoga with numerous master teachers and appreciate the beauty in all styles.
I earned my 200 Yoga Alliance certification through Tiffany Cruikshank of Yoga Medicine. I’m in the process of working towards my 500-hour certification with YogaMedicine.
In my many years of teaching I have been invited to teach around the world. Teaching to such a diverse audience has given me a depth of understanding and experience that I would have never been able to grasp without having taken the opportunity in my early years of teaching.
Since my first festivals in Mexico and Costa Rica, I have taught thousands of yogis in sold out festivals all around the world. Some of my favorite and largest festivals being, Yoga Festival A, Yoga Festival B and Yoga Festival C.
