My journey with yoga began with a fitness class. The class was a combination of step, kickboxing, and yoga. During class, I stepped, kicked, and punched. When the yoga portion of class started, I knew this was something different. I experienced how yoga can calm the mind and bring awareness by linking breath with movement. While my background is in technical training and computer programming, I found that my yoga practice brought a balance to my life and I am passionate about sharing the joy of yoga with everyone.
To further develop my practice and continue my education of yoga and the body, I completed yoga teacher training through LifePower Yoga in 2014 in Reston, Virginia. Through training, I learned several yoga styles including Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Hot Vinyasa, Slow Burn, Chair, Yin, and Restorative Yoga. I currently hold the 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher designation (RYT 200) through Yoga Alliance. I am Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED certified through the American Red Cross and hold general liability insurance.
Please contact me for group training as well as one-on-one private yoga sessions.
Whether it is your first yoga class or if you are an experienced yogi, I look forward to seeing you on the mat!
