After reading the book, “Journey Into Power” by Baron Baptiste, I found myself taking my very first yoga class in 2004 at the Baptiste affiliate studio Power Yoga Works in Malvern, PA. I first thought, “Wow, what a great workout!”, and quickly became committed to attending regular classes, building stamina and strength with determination I never knew before.
My practice and commitment grew until I was inspired to find a better understanding of this transformational yoga practice. I attended my first teacher training in 2006 with Certified Baptiste Teacher, Bill Raup, and have been teaching at Power Yoga Works since 2007. Even though I still feel very young in my yogic journey, having taken my first yoga class as recently as 2004, the power, as well as connection to community, continue to grow and take me to new levels both on and off my mat.
As far as my background, I completed Level 1 Teacher Training in August 2007 and Level 2 Teacher Training in September 2009 with Baron Baptiste. I’m currently an Associate Baptiste teacher and am working towards full certification. I learned during Level 1 Teacher Training with Baron that the REAL practice of being authentic and present in life is not only on the mat - but off the mat as well. This is the stuff true transformation is made of!
The opportunity to be an Ambassador of lululemon will enable me to connect with others who are passionate about living a balanced life. I feel truly honored to be part of the community at lululemon and commit to continue studying and sharing my passion of this transformational yoga practice.
