What drew you to this profession?
My yoga journey began in 2012 when a personal crisis pushed me to seek help. I found healing and hope in the restorative power of yoga and now I find such fulfillment in sharing it with others.
How does your work differ from others in your profession?
Giving options, offering choices and reminding students to follow their intuition are first priority in my teaching. I want people to find out what they like and feel safe doing. It is important not to just blindly follow instructions, but to look for ways to uniquely experience each pose and sequence. My work is to help people find and nurture themselves.
What should someone expect from working with you?
In my classes both online and in person, we spend lots of time resting, breathing and enjoying deep stretches, strengthening poses while working on posture and balance as well. I also work hard to remind everyone to be safe, especially in regards to osteoporosis.
What changes do you plan in 2022?
In 2022, I want to focus on giving students a short list of poses that they can practice at home so that no one ever gets stuck in a pandemic not knowing what poses to practice again. I want people to feel empowered and able to practice confidently, anytime, anywhere.
What is most important for Natural Awakenings’ readers to know?
Yoga is a complete mind, body and spirit experience. Often we come to class looking for some physical fitness and we find that as our body opens, so does our heart and mind. It is a delight to spend time together enjoying this amazing gift, whether it is online or in person. Yoga is truly amazing and everyone could benefit from it if they just give it a try.
