My yoga journey began in Early 2009, and like most of us I began my yoga practice for the physical benefits. I wanted to be more flexible, stronger and toned. I discovered very quickly it was much more than just a physical practice. I noticed a profound difference in all aspects of my life. Not only did I feel better physically I began to notice the spiritual and emotional benefits yoga was effecting in my daily life. I was hooked! My yoga practice became a tool helping me to cope with challenging changes in my life and the daily stresses and struggles of this human journey. I noticed a profound shift as my body became stronger, my mind became calmer and I became more in touch with my personal spirit.
In 2012 I continued deepening my practice by taking the 200hr teacher training here at Joyful Yoga. I have since been certified with Connection Coalition a training for sharing yoga with at risk youth. I am a Y12SR certified instructor, bringing yoga and the 12 steps of recovery together as a tool. I am also a certified Buti Yoga Instructor.
Presently a teacher and a student here at Joyful Yoga where I am grateful to share this love of yoga with others. I hope to see you on your mat in one of my classes or practicing beside you in one of the many classes here. Peace
