I am an E-RYT 500. I first started getting involved with the teaching of yoga through kids. I was scared to teach adults because I thought I needed to go to India and a have a guru! So 200 hr with Marsha Wenig of YogaKids. 200 hr (incomplete) with Baron Baptiste, 200 hr South Boston Yoga, 300 hr with Shiva Rea and on the job training with Natasha Rizopoulos (Eventually went to India but no guru).
Why I Practice
It helps connect me to the person I want to be by forcing me to slow down, come out of thinking and into snesation and feeling. It's a way for me to fill up my own cup so that I can share my gift as well as be present in my life. It is inspiring to be surrounded by people doing the same.
Why I Teach
I love being in the energy of a room filled with people making a commitment to connect to them selves, their higher selves and each other. It is refreshing to come into a space where people are moving and breathing their way into balance.
I have been blessed with the presence of many teachers in all forms. My mother and my dog Gracie on the daily. Natasha Rizopoulos and Shiva Rea for sharing their gift with me and my teacher trainees for trusting me to share my gift with them.
