Yoga has been a catalyst in helping me find peace in each moment. In 2003 while suffering from PTSD, I had my first introduction to yoga, not through the (physical) yoga we all know so well, but through pranayama (breath work) and meditation. These things came together full circle when I began the physical practice a few years later. As a dancer, I have always found solace in movement but finally making the true mind-body connection has offered me the opportunity to truly experience total well-being. Although I originally began my 200-hour registered yoga teacher training in an effort to deepen my own practice and understanding of yoga, I find great joy in sharing what I’ve learned in order to help others. I enjoyed it so much that I went on to study more by doing a 500-hour training with renowned author Rolf Gates. Now I teach Rolf's curriculum as an affiliate of his teacher training school. My approach to teacher training is to teach my students skills to move through life skillfully no matter what happens. By taking their yoga off their mats and into their everyday life, my trainees are able to embody the remaining limbs of yoga while guiding students through the physical limbs.
