I started my yoga practice with a desire to move more and get my body healthier, but what I found was so much greater than the physical benefits. I have struggled most of my life with depression and self worth issues, never feeling I was “enough.” Yoga has been helping me go beyond the voice of the inner critic and has set me on a journey of self-acceptance. And while I still struggle at times (I think it is part of being human), I have found that the compassion I’ve always easily extended to others I finally can give to myself as well.
During 2017 I completed a 230-hour yoga teacher training, which I started with the intention of deepening my own practice and knowledge of yoga. The more I learned about yoga, the more I wanted to continue to learn and the desire to share this beautiful practice just happened spontaneously. My love for restorative yoga, which I find so refreshing and reinvigorating, led me to also complete a training in restorative yoga, which I’m honored to teach now, in addition to a meditative and replenishing slow flow.
