The first time I stepped on a yoga mat it was for reasons other than getting physically fit. At the time, I was a band director, along with being the visual coordinator and colorguard instructor, for a successful music program in Richardson, TX. Over my 8 yrs. of teaching high school, I had created a lot of health issues starting with an ulcer at 22! I spent a few years "masking" these issues and finally realized that in order for me to be all that I could for my students, I had to start focusing on myself. I tried a couple of different styles of yoga and was a little unsure if this was a right fit for me. I kept reading and exploring all that was out there and stumbled upon Power Yoga (Baptiste), thanks to my neighbor at the time, Jessica Young. I was hooked from the beginning and felt indescribable after. All my life music has been my passion but as I delve deeper into this practice, things shifted. I practiced for a couple of years before I decided to go through teacher training. I went through training in 2003 and received my 200 hr and am currently working toward my 500 hr. certification with Shiva Rea.
