I thought my yoga journey began in 1999 but I’ve actually been on it my entire life. Raised in a traditional, Christian, southern home in Southeast Arkansas, my parents taught me that things were never hopeless, not to let people or events affect you, that material things will not make you happy, and to live for today. (They were true yogis and they didn’t even know it!) They were and are the two most influential people in my life. They passed away in ’96 and ’99 and my yoga practice started then. Like so many others yoga helped me through some very challenging times. I learned to accept the challenge, put down the struggle and let go of the "victim" role I had created for myself. At that point I knew I had to share these tools with others. In 2005 I was certified through American Power Yoga and have been teaching full time ever since. From 2008-2013 I co-led APY's 200 hour teacher training. In 2015 I look forward to partnering with Amy Johnson for a new 200 hr teacher training hosted at Karmany Yoga Studios in April!
