After many years of multiple facets in group exercise ranging from aerobics to body pump, program manager, choreographer and mentor the appeal of yoga as stress reduction and inner peace became inviting. It was at that time I began my yoga journey to becoming a certified yoga level II and pilates instructor with AAAI/ISMA.
Since that time, I have continued the study of yoga by completing the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training here at MOYO. While in the process of completing the 200 hour training I also completed the requirements for certification and became a 500 hour Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance a national certification. Along the way I also had the opportunity to study under many experienced yogis, most recently completing the YIN teacher training with Sarah Powers at Kripalu.
Throughout the many years of teaching, I’ve had the pleasure to watch many students grow in their practice, seeing change occurring in their physical and mental well being, while growing in both their yin and yang practice.
Teaching in many venues allows me to remain present to the ever evolving world whether it is bringing yoga to the corporate workplace, gym, studio setting or as a mentor, where I have found a great sense of satisfaction in assisting students to become teachers. In addition, many parents having seen the benefits of yoga, and wanting to share this experience have encouraged their children to begin participating in a yoga program an early age. With this in mind, I began teaching kid’s yoga, family yoga, prenatal yoga and Mommy’s and Me yoga.
It is my belief that one should live life fully and compassionately. I teach to honor the ongoing learning process we share together as student and teacher.
