Tell us a little about your Yoga journey? I began my yoga journey in 2001. I was on a fitness path and observed that there was a greater picture and path to follow. I went to NC School of Yoga for initial certification and from there have explored and studied under various teachers and systems of yoga over the past 15 years.
What makes you feel most alive? Discovering new places! Family, friends, and dogs!
What do you love most about Yoga? What do hope to inspire in others? I love the aspect of yoga that allows you to move and explore through joy and inspiration from within. I have learned through the practice of Yoga and by sharing my passion that other’s were on board and it has blossomed into a supportive community of likeminded bright souls! My self esteem, self confidence, and general sense of well being has been nurtured through my practice. I hope to be a guide to other’s on their yogic path, and as a teacher I am totally inspired by my students!
