Guided ashtanga, ashtanga Mysore style
I completed the 200 hour yoga teacher training at Balance Yoga & Wellness in 2019 as well as David Swenson’s 40 hour Ashtanga Primary Series teacher training in 2021. I have been practicing Ashtanga yoga consistently since 2015.
My inspiration comes from the belief that taking care of my body and mind allows me to be my best self. We have the opportunity every day to look at what is in front of us through a different lens, learn something new, and try something different. If you’re done growing, you’re done.
WHY I PRACTICE
I found yoga in my early 30s after years of long-distance running and eating like I was still in college. The practice has helped me develop more mental clarity and better habits. Rooted in the breath, practicing Ashtanga continually challenges me to find grounding, lightness, and strength in both body and mind.
WHY I TEACH
Yoga has changed my life for the better, and I teach to share what I’ve learned so that it can hopefully benefit others.
