"I started as a student just like you. For years, I struggled to make myself a priority while meeting the demands of my stressful corporate jobs. When lack of self-care eventually took a toll on both my physical and mental health, I knew I had to take a different approach. I became a mainstay at Yoga 360 – first as a Pilates and yoga student, and then receiving healing support from spa services, retreats and more. My path eventually led me to the Yoga 360 School of Teaching, studying under my teacher and mentor, Colleen Rose. Today I’m the owner of Yoga 360, and also a yoga and Pilates teacher. Chances are if you call or stop in, I could be the one on the other end of the phone or here to greet you at the door. Meeting you is my absolute favorite part of my role!"
