I started practicing yoga for the physical benefits, but I found myself more and more drawn to the spiritual and philosophical aspects of yoga. Yoga became something I did for myself every day. Hungry for more, I dove right in to my 200 hour teacher training at Lotus Yoga to attain the knowledge and a better understanding of yoga as a whole. My love for yoga grew exponentially from there. I have studied with Rod Stryker, Judith Hanson Lasater, Aaron Price, Tara Kristof, and Jennifer Hensley.
Yoga has changed my life in so many ways. I realized it doesn’t matter if you fall out of a pose or that a pose does not look a certain way, what matters is that you try to your best ability and keep going when you fall. I believe the real yoga begins off of the mat. Living and practicing this philosophy has taught me compassion; compassion for myself and compassion for others.
My yoga teaching philosophy is to honor who you are and your body. I believe each student should adjust a pose for their body versus adjusting their body to a pose. Adjustments are what make it your authentic yoga practice. I am here as a guide on your journey.
