I first started doing yoga 8 years ago when I realized how much my anxiety and lack of concentration was beginning to disrupt areas of my life. After noticing the subtle changes in my mood, level of awareness and connection with my body as well as with something beyond me, I had discovered the true healing power of physical discipline. This led me to deepen my practice and travel to Bali, Indonesia for my 200 hour vinyasa flow teacher training intensive through Frog Lotus Yoga (Yoga Alliance Qualified). An inner truth I knew deep inside had reawakened during my experience in Asia and all I knew was that I had to share it. In our society we are trained to be constantly busy, productive and following the motions of a fast pace life. We forget we have the option of slowing down; however, we are so conditioned we forget to make it a priority. What if we could train the mind to ease off the stress and ask our body to follow the same plan? How liberating would that be? Well, we can but it involves practice, love, and much patience. In my style of teaching private yoga, I like to create a practice that encourages students to work with their strengths along with a balance of challenging postures and allowing the flow of growth develop from there.
