"I believe yoga should be accessible. It's important to me that my students can absorb and relate to the instruction I am relaying to them. I work to create a partnership with my students - to understand where they are coming from and where they would like to be... whether it's on the mat or in their life."
I began my yoga practice in 2005 and have been on my mat for over fifteen years. And believe me, I know all too well the ups and downs of someone committed to a regular, life-long yoga practice.
My training to be your teacher is extensive and will never end. I am a life-long learner and am always looking for ways to expand my knowledge to assist others on the path.
Teaching yoga for over eight years now, I am a Level Two OHYA Instructor approved for continuing education, having completed 500-hour Original Hot Yoga Teacher Training, 120-hour Next Level Intermediate Ghosh Yoga Training, and Hot 26 Plus Training. Also, in the fall of 2019 I became a Certified RAD Yoga Mobility Specialist, specializing in self myofascial release techniques and have been an official USA Yoga Coach for competitive yoga athletes since 2017. It is a priority for me to attend and complete multiple instructor development events and will be attending Carmen Aguilar's 200-hr RYT in Chicago in August 2020.
Some further background to cover, includes graduating in the year 2000 with a degree in Education which gives me a broad range of teaching experience through the years, working with students in multiple disciplines, in both one-to-one and group settings. With a true understanding of individual learning styles, I can quickly assess how you learn to connect with you in the way you learn best.
The students I love to work with are interested in learning good technique to take their practice further, have a drive to learn more about yoga and themselves, and are willing to push at their boundaries and work hard to hit their goals.
It is an honor to work with the students that seek me out and I look forward to connecting with you at a group class, workshop, or one of my online offerings.
