I am a passionate yogi. I have been practicing yoga for the last 8 years. I am a certified yoga teacher for both adults and children. What I love most about yoga is the principals and skills you learn on your mat are just as applicable in everyday life. I am a deeply empathetic individual and highly sensistive to other people's energies and emotions. Yoga has provided to me a space where I can cultivate my own identity while learning to not consistently take on the emotions of others. However, being a yoga teacher, I find that my sensitivity allows for me to truly connect with my students on a very intimate level. I am able to meet each student where they are at and provide a class that is appropriate both physically and emotionally. The physical practice of yoga often brings up many unconsious emotions, I myself am prone to tear up while in a particular posture simply because past stress or trauma is stored in particular parts of the body. I feel that as a teacher it is my job to guide each student through their practice recognizing and acknowledging each emotion that is brought forward.
I am also committed to the benefits that yoga can offer to everyone no matter their age or ability. I started an after-school yoga program at the elementary school I previously worked at, simply to give my students a safe space to learn about their mind and body connection. Emotions, no matter our age, can be difficult to articulate. If we have a better understanding of how our emotions feel in our body, I believe we have an even greater chance of working through problems an difficulties in our life.
Itensive 200-hour yoga teaching training through CorePower Yoga and accredited by the Yoga Alliance.
Focus on both the physical practice of yoga and also the yogic philosophy.
