I began yoga many years ago as a child at a dance studio I attended. My friend and I couldn’t stop laughing and we ended up being asked to leave the adult yoga class. Of course in my rebellion that made me want to do more yoga. So I started by practicing at home with yoga tapes (Kids this was before DVDs). At first I enjoyed yoga because although I danced I wasn’t naturally flexible and yoga improved that. Yoga also introduced me to meditation which helped me to stay focus and learn how to calm my mind (I have Bipolar).
After years of practicing off and on I came back to practicing yoga regularly in 2013 mostly to help me get a handle on my anxiety, stress and help with my back pain. As I continued to practice yoga I wanted to share my love of yoga with others.
I enjoy teaching kids and adults. I can see so many benefits of yoga when teaching children. I love it when kids say “this is yoga?” , I like to make my kids classes fun and playful but mindful. I enjoy teaching adults because I can help them with massage therapy but with yoga they can learn to help themselves. I feel that yoga and massage go so well together.
I especially like teaching non stereotypical “yogis”, as a plus size person myself I enjoy sharing yoga with every ONE and every BODY.
I am so grateful to do what I love.
