Recently my personal practice has evolved to include the more subtle aspects of yoga, as well as different styles like Yin and Vinyasa. This led me on a journey to New York City to study asana, mantra, and kriya yoga with Jared McCann where I spent two summers with him and graduated from his advanced RYT-500 program. I was able to find a system of meditation and yoga asanas that leaves me feeling comfortable and stable in my body and mind. I hope to share some of this with you the next time you take my class. If you feel that yoga has changed your life for the better, be sure to share with me—I would love to hear about your yoga journey!
Why I Practice
I believe that yoga is the most powerful tool in the world to elevate ourselves physically, spiritually, and emotionally. We can refine our bodies through the physical study of yoga postures and clarify our minds through powerful meditations and visualizations. Through this transformation, we begin to manifest our destiny and fulfill our life’s work.
Why I Teach
My practice started in the the 26+2 hatha yoga tradition. After three classes I was hooked, and I saw the benefits quickly: better flexibility, improved mood, and decreased weight. I wanted to serve others and share what I had learned by studying to be a teacher, and I attended Hot Yoga Teacher Training in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. In addition to teaching, I spent several years competing on the national level, and I enjoyed the mental clarity that developed from asana (posture) demonstration.
