of how the practice would, ultimately, influence my life. That was back in 1997 and, no matter where life has taken me, it always brought me back to my mat.
Fast-forward 15 years and, after stepping away from the corporate world in 2012, I earned my 500-hour, Yoga Alliance-approved teaching certificate from Kava Yoga in Long Beach, CA.
In addition to my 500-hour credential, I have 30 hours of Yoga
Alliance-approved training in children's yoga, as well as holdcertification in trauma-focused yoga (20 hours),yoga for 12-step recovery (24 hours)and Yoga Strap Wall Level 1 (10 hours).
My teaching style emphasizes strength; flexibility; proper
alignment; and, most important, safety. I connect all movement with the breath, ensuring that students gain the most benefit from their practice — physically, mentally and spiritually. In the end, my goal is to inspire students to work to their highest potential, while encouraging them to have fun and enjoy their practice.
I teach Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Trauma-informed, Addiction Recovery and Children's Yoga and enjoy working with private clients, whether they are looking for help with injury prevention/recovery, are new to the practice and want to build confidence before taking a public class, or simply want the benefits of a one-to-one practice.
