my students and teachers in the yoga community and the change my practice has brought to my life. Seeing people grow in their practice, open and strengthen their bodies, and connect with themselves inspires my teaching.
Why I Practice
I practice yoga because I have found it to be a vessel for well being and self discovery. I was first drawn to yoga for the athletic aspects of asana; however, in short time, the practice led me to a feeling of peace, balance, and contentment that I had not experienced in years of sports and athletic training. I then knew that my own yoga practice would accompany me for the rest of my life.
Why I Teach
I feel that being properly taught the practice of yoga is a gift and I hope to share that gift with my students. Selfishly, it feels really good to see a student progress in their practice. Seeing a student have a breakthrough, or simply finish their first class, inspires my practice and my teaching.
