My journey of yoga began with Bikram style yoga, when I was 16 years old. My goal was to be fit for prom, but what I got out yoga was so much more. Overtime, I continued my practice and learned that yoga helped me with my stress levels during college. After 8 years of yoga I came to a point in my practice where I felt I needed a change. I tried Crossfit for a year, but I found my body and mind wandering back to yoga. Then I was introduced to Vinyasa style yoga, which I immediately fell in love with. During my Vinyasa practice I was laid off and decided it was the perfect point in my life to pursue my passion of teaching yoga. I began my journey as an instructor by earning two certifications and teaching my friends and family. My favorite style to teach is a more upbeat rhythm with a lot of movement, generating heat and excitement!
