When and how did you come to yoga?
About 11 years ago, a friend recommended I try bikram to help with my tennis elbow and other aches I was feeling due to the amount of competitive tennis and hard core workouts I endured since I was a teenager. After 6 months of practicing, my body and mind changed in ways I never imagined. I was then motivated to explore other types of yoga such as Baptiste and Power Vinyasa and yoga soon became a part of my life!
Why did you start teaching yoga?
I wanted to know more than just the physical part of the practice. I wanted to understand more about the philosophy and history of yoga.
What is your favorite pose?
Natarajasana (Dancers Pose) since it is a pose that represents balance – both on and off the mat.
Who inspires your teaching?
All of the YBD teachers!! Every day off I plan to take a class and it just amazes me what I learn from each teacher at YBD!
Tips for beginners…
Keep coming! Do not worry about feeling you have to know ‘everything’, yoga is a lifetime journey.
What’s your favorite quote?
“You have to take care of yourself in order to take care of others”
– this resonates so much with me since I balance a full time job in addition to being a mother, wife, and yoga teacher!
