Yoga was introduced to me when I attempted to take a spin class. 2 minutes into the warmup I quickly realized spinning was not for me. I stumbled into my first yoga class and loved it! Once I was ready to make changes in my life and accept the benefits, yoga became a part of my daily routine. I turned to teaching during a rough period in my life, as a distraction. I enjoy teaching a vinyasa/power flow to fun energetic playlists. I enjoy challenging people to either go deeper in their practice or stay exactly where their body/mind/life positions them.
