I've been practicing yoga since 2002, meditation since 1992. I'm a RYT-200 yoga instructor with additional certifications in kid's yoga and Curvy Yoga (Yoga for Every Body). I'm currently enrolled in a 300 hour advanced Energetics of Yoga teacher training, and trained in Ayurveda and meditation. Yoga has not only made me a happier, healthier person, it has also helped me to get in touch with my true self. My studies and personal practice in Ayurveda have helped me to live a healthier lifestyle that's more in balance with nature. I really believe that yoga, Ayurveda, and meditation can be used by anyone who wants to be healthier, happier, and more in tune with the natural rhythms and cycles of our planet.
