I have my 230hr teaching certification from Asheville Yoga Center, getting to study under Stephanie Keach, Shala Worsley, & Joe Taft. It was the most trans-formative, challenging and rewarding thing I have done in my life thus far. What started as a father daughter bonding experience, when I was 16, has turned into a lifelong practice. Each moment brings me into a deeper awareness of the phenomenal effects yoga has on the body, mind and spirit. I come to my mat and I practice opening, physically & energetically. I practice compassion for myself and others. I practice gratitude, for every inhale & exhale. I practice patience & acceptance. Yoga is my practice. I am transparent, never expecting life to be perfect, my choice only to have a positive attitude. I learn from the great teachers before me, from the students in front of me, my heart & intuition and the everyday challenges of life.
I empower my students to tune into their inner awareness and really shine through in whatever form that may be---tears, sweat, laughter, stillness, movement, strength, breath. Yoga is fun and students feel energized and renewed at the end of class. The light in me recognizes the light in every person I am lucky enough to meet.
