“I stumbled upon yoga in 1998 with a 20 minute video, popping it into the VCR late at night after I came home from a hectic day at work. Little did I know this video would change my life! I discovered an all-encompassing system that showed me how to find ease, stability and strength in body and mind. Not only did it unwind the tensions of a long day, it became an important complement to all the other sports I was doing at the time. The benefits quickly spread off the mat.
My yoga and meditation practice continues to help me find perspective and balance with greater ease – at home, work, alone, with others, and within every moment. 19 years later (with 5000+ hours of training, teaching and leading over 32 teacher trainings), I enjoy teaching students how to use the system of yoga to learn how to:
- slow down and listen to the present state of their body and mind
- identify what their lifestyle requires from their body and mind
- how to use the methods of yoga to serve the needs of their lives
In that way, we meet ourselves where we are, take a proactive approach to self care and can practice yoga for life. ”
