I was introduced to yoga when I was a teenager when I was bored at home during summer vacation! What began as a way to stay active as a teenager has blossomed over the years into a path of self-realization and well-being. After many years of personal practice, study, and learning from wonderful teachers, I was not sure if or when I would feel called to teach. My teacher at the time told me I would know when I was ready. After I attended a professional conference on the neuroscience of trauma and the benefits of incorporating practices such as yoga into the process of healing, I was inspired to complete my yoga teacher training. I will be teaching Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga classes. I operate under the philosophy that people are their own best teachers. I see myself as a guide and collaborator with individuals on their personal paths in order to strengthen the voice of their inner teacher. I have been curious and actively involved in my own yoga practice, and I want people to feel empowered by their own practice. As a teacher, I also see myself as a holder of the space along with fostering the balancing self-acceptance and growth. I work within the lens that everyone is supporting others in their lives whether it’s professionally and/or personally. I believe that people deserve to have time and a place to engage in their own self-care, development, healing, and creative expression in order to continue to be effective in their support of others.
“If one wants to add beauty to life, one has to inculcate balance in each and every aspect.” – Swami Satyasangananda Saraswati
