I began practicing on my own, and realized that my time on the mat had an enormous positive impact on my life off the mat. Yoga changed the way I walked through the world. I chose to pursue my teacher certification during the spring of 2018 through an organization called Breathe for Change. Their mission is to bring yoga and mindfulness to teachers and their students with the hope of fostering more balanced and healthy lives. I was truly overwhelmed by my spiritual growth through the deepening of my own practice. Yoga, in the sanskrit definition means union-- to connect mind, body, and spirit. In a world that can be so disconnected, my hope is to encourage connection within individual yogis, as well as the collective. I’m passionate about sharing yoga with all ages and experience levels.
