My yoga journey began about six years ago when I became an avid long-distance runner. Along with running came the tired sore muscles and relentless injuries. Finding yoga with my daughters and continuing practicing through Holy Yoga Foundation, I found more than Asanas. I found relief from stress, cure for injuries, a connection with a Higher Power and a purpose in teaching what I love.
The joy from practicing yoga led me to seek my training for a RYT-225 hour through Holy Yoga. It was a great place to start, feeling a certain safety net in my belief system, even though it wasn't accepted by the Yoga Alliance because training was distance based. My education took me into Specialty Certifications in Chair Yoga and Touch Therapy. For the past two years, I have been teaching yoga at church, at the beach, at any available space and at Shoreline Natural Wellness and Fitness. Now, I am lucky enough to add Blue Horizons Wellness to the list!
As I grew further into yoga, I knew I needed to dig deeper into its world. Still having the mindset that once a student, always a student, I am currently taking another 200 hr Teacher Training course that is accepted by the Yoga Alliance. It will help me open more avenues reaching more people to help them realize their true potential.
I enjoy teaching Gentle Yoga, Chair Yoga, Soul Flow and Vinyasa Flow. I offer a bit of healing through Touch Therapy during Savasana.
It is my dream to continue to grow, teach what I know and build a community of trust, acceptance, love and joy for our Selves and one another. The journey thus far, has taught me more than I ever imagined, loving every minute guiding others and growing toward the best teacher I can possibly be.
