I have practiced yoga on and off for past 15 years. While the frequency of my practice varied over that time, I always loved how I felt on my mat, both mentally and physically. Looking back, it was probably when I needed yoga and self-care the most is when I didn’t prioritize the time for it amongst the demands of life. After attending a surf and yoga retreat in November of 2017, I spent several months reflecting on becoming more present in everything that I do and being more intentional about my life and the priorities for the various phases. This led me to the summer of 2018 and the decision to take a pause from my professional career to spend more time with my family and pursue my yoga instructor certification and health coach certification. I earned my Yoga Alliance RYT 200 certification through Green Lotus in Annandale over the course of the summer. It was an amazing experience and period of personal growth. I am excited to continue to grow as a teacher and share the experience of yoga with others.
