I’m a firm believer in the idea that if we are open, what we need will find us, usually when we need it most. That’s exactly how this style of yoga worked its way into my life. I had previously tried a different style of hot yoga for a few months and during a very difficult, transitional point in my life, I was living in a town where the only form of hot yoga was hot power yoga. I walked into the studio not knowing what to expect or what I really needed and found a practice that helped me get out of my head and into my body...exactly what I needed. Soon, the practice became my refuge and I craved getting to the studio. A few years later, I moved to the North Hills, was encouraged to try Amazing Yoga by a friend, walked in, and never looked back!
Through a consistent practice at AY, I felt my practice and my commitment to it deepen. Teacher training seemed like the next logical step, as I wanted to learn more and more about the practice. I packed my bags for Amazing Yoga’s Level 1 teacher training in sunny Tulum, Mexico in June 2014 just wanting to deepen my practice and be open to possibilities. That week was truly tansformational, and I left knowing that I wanted to share this practice in the form of teaching. Wanting to refine my teaching even more, I completed Amazing Yoga’s Level 2 teacher training in August 2015. I hope to teach with a sense of joy, simplicity, and humor infused with lots and lots of breath! I am also a certified iRest® Yoga Nidra teacher and am honored to share that practice with the community.
My other practice is as a licensed psychologist, and I love to think and talk about the psychological aspects of the practice. My husband and I live in the North Hills, where I am often shadowed by an 8 pound Silky Terrier named Lola. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, reading, and spending time with friends and family.
