I was 16years old living in St George, Utah the first time I walked into a yoga class. That first class I knew and stated that “I’m going to be a yoga instructor.” As life goes I lost track of this desire, only doing little bit of yoga a few times a month, instead I had become active with rock climbing mostly “bouldering” climbing up big rocks without a rope. A day came when I had a serious fall breaking both of my ankles at the same time! I was bound to either crawl, be carried or a wheelchair for 3months. That fall brought me to Salt Lake City, where I met a local yoga instructor he reminded me of my forgotten passion and desire to become an instructor and encouraged me to attend my first yoga teacher training.
There are many things that I love about yoga one being anybody can do it “the actual practice of yoga takes each person in a different direction.” That “careful observation will enable us to discover something new.” Something new about myself was when I realized that I hold my breath, that my body, isn’t balanced with my head, and that my head wasn’t in-sync with my heart. But through intentional breath and conscious movement, my head, heart, and body can move as one, come into union and be yogic. When in union with oneself, true authentic expression can be found.
When not in a yoga studio I am often out climbing up some rocks (I still think that rock-climbing is a blast! And adds to my yoga practice) Oil painting or riding my motorcycle around town in bright red cowboy boots, safely of course.
I am 500E-RYT. In 2010 I received my 500hour certificate from Dana Baptisite. In 2012 I attended and received my 200hour from Peter Francky and Erin Menut. In 2013 I completed a 500hour with Charlotte Bell, Erin G Rabke, Peter Francky & Erin Menut, and in 2014 Ana Forrest, Advance teacher training. Seane Corn 5 day intensive 2015. Ana Forrest AYTT 2016. I have also had the blessing to attend workshops with knowledge yogi’s, and I have every intention to keep adding to my training, so I can become the most useful instructor I can be.
