My yoga journey began in 1999 when I bought a Rodney Yee VHS yoga video. I would practice yoga in my basement as a way to bring fitness and stress relief into my life. In 2009, hot Power Vinyasa Yoga became my practice of choice and transformed my life. The physicality of power yoga helped me to get stronger and lose weight. With the counsel, support, and guidance of many, I made my way to becoming a yoga teacher. I had to eliminate toxic relationships, grow in confidence and envision myself teaching yoga.
I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher certification at Cleveland Yoga in 2013. My style of teaching yoga is mindful, energetic and fun! I use vinyasas to warm up the body and mind for more challenging poses while helping my students find their edge. They learn to build confidence, become self-aware by staring fear in the face. Overall I use the influences of power yoga and adapt it as needed for my students and clients because I believe that every “body” can do yoga!
