I attended my first yoga class 15 years ago at the urging of my sister-in-law. I knew very little about yoga at that time and would never have imagined the profound sense of peace I felt the moment I settled onto my mat. This was the beginning of a journey that would forever change my life.
My yoga practice quickly progressed beyond the physical to a practice of letting go and reclaiming my true inner self. Each time I came to my mat was an opportunity to explore and move through deeply buried wounds and past trauma. Little by little, I was rediscovering my true self and becoming whole.
I felt so passionately about the aesculapian power of yoga that I wanted to share it with the world, which led me to sign up for Brett Larkin’s Uplifted 200 Hour YTT. Little did I know then, that signing up for that course would change the course of my life forever!
When my training was nearing completion, I had found my new path. I loved the support, compassion and knowledge that Brett shared with us throughout the training and I wanted to do the same thing for other student’s like me. I began working as a TA with Uplifted after my graduation in 2016, a job and path I continue to enjoy to this day!
