“My yoga journey began in high school with some VHS Power Yoga tapes my mom bought. I was fascinated by the physical and mental challenge yoga could provide, as well as the never ending possibilities for growth and transformation on the mat. Over the last 20 years, I have continued being a mostly self-educated student of yoga. I used many principles of yoga during the 13 years I worked as a doula (birth coach) and childbirth educator. I began teaching yoga 8 years ago and was amazed at how much deeper and more meaningful my practice became when I was focused on creating powerful experiences for my students. I love how yoga guides me into a unique mental state of clarity and creativity where I feel truly open to the universe and connected to the divine. Yoga has strengthened and empowered me through 4 pregnancies and births, as well as through baby-raising, and child-rearing. It has focused and challenged me during periods of growth. And it has guided me and held me together in times of sadness and grief. I can’t imagine my life without yoga. It will be a lifelong pursuit.”
