Vinyasa, Yin, Hot yoga
I completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training with Hot Asana Yoga University (Southern Pines, NC) and Love More Hot Yoga (Covington, LA) in 2020. In addition to my 200-hour training, I've received certifications in Yin Yoga (25 hours, Hot Asana Yoga University, 2021), Hands-On Assisting (25 hours, Hot Asana Yoga University, 2022), and Traditional Chinese Medicine (30 hours, Yoga Medicine, 2022). I am currently enrolled in a 100-hour restorative training (to be completed in September of 2022) covering yin, restorative yoga, and myofascial release, as well as two other advanced anatomy classes with Yoga Medicine. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance.
I am inspired by learning, creating connections, and sharing knowledge, movement, and breath with my community.
WHY I PRACTICE
I took my first yoga class in high school, and returned to and fell in and out of the practice for years. When I finished graduate school and moved to a new city, facing unfamiliar personal and professional challenges, I began to dedicate myself to a steady practice that has provided stability and grounding ever since. Through consistency I began to understand and reap benefits of yoga beyond the physical asana and have gained a greater sense of purpose and intention in all aspects of my life. I practice to reconnect with and to remind myself that there is so much more beyond me.
WHY I TEACH
I teach to share the benefits I have experienced through my own practice with others. I teach to hold space for my students to play and grow in their own practice. I love the room the study and practice of yoga provides to gain greater understanding of the body and mind, including and beyond anatomy and specific alignment principles. In my classes expect an intentional and intelligent flow with mindful sequencing building on layers of movement and linking movement to breath. It is my privilege to try to impart upon my students a renewed sense of ease, in both body and mind.
