What brought me here?

Yoga is the only form of exercise that has ever continually drawn me back again & again. At first it was the physical draw. I felt challenged and witnessed my body become stronger. Then as I attended more classes & became more familiar with the poses I actually started listening. The concepts of awareness, presence & meditative breath slowly worked their way into my practice. I’ve been studying ever since.

Why teach it?

I’m a teacher. I have been involved in various forms of education throughout my professional journey. I started as a teenager teaching kids to swim; I spent several years after university as a substitute public school teacher; I supervised a children’s nursery program & I have the on-going privilege of teaching kids & adults to SCUBA dive.

How I did it?

It was inevitable that I would eventually merge my love for both teaching & yoga. In 2011 I did just that by becoming RYT certified with Tribe Yoga in India. Upon returning to the States I have found myself at home teaching various ages, abilities & interpretations of yoga. I continue to study & develop myself as both a teacher & student.

My Goal as a teacher?

At the end of each class I teach I’m overwhelmed with the same feeling that brings me back, time after time, to my own yoga practice. It’s a sense of cool content & gratitude. I hope to leave my students feeling exactly the same way. Empowered & uplifted, content & centered, leaving in a more positive state than when they entered.

I am grateful beyond these brief sentences for the opportunities I’ve been afforded. I hope to inspire fellow yogis like I’ve been inspired by so many gifted teachers along the way.
