Yoga

My Training:

I first heard a calling for Yoga in 2013 and took my first yoga class, it was Ashtanga Primary Led and I remember wanting to die in the middle of it but telling myself I could do this. When I made it out of that class I immediately felt the essence of Yoga running through my veins creating connections with my inner being that would send me diving deep into the Philosophy of Yoga. Three months later I enrolled myself in a Yoga Teacher Training at Yogamatrix Studio with Edely Wallace. Thus began the start of a journey into the path of Hatha Yoga. Two years later, I returned back to the Ashtanga Yoga practice and did a 200HR training with teacher Maureen Dinkins at Urban Ashtanga. I am now a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher with 200HRS in Hatha Yoga and 200HRS in Ashtanga Yoga. Although I have only been on my Asana Yoga journey for 4 years, I have truly always been practicing Karma and Bhakti Yoga my whole life. If I’m not on my matt, you can find me surfing the waves of the east coast or at the local drum circle. I also love to sing and play music, paint, write, read, make jewelry… Anything were I have the chance to be creative!

Always practice yoga with bare feet! No socks or shoes. If you are practicing yoga postures (asana) with shoes on, it will not ever be yoga, since the reflexivity of the nerves in the soles of the feet are vital to the practice.

My Teaching Style:

My teaching style is an eclectic mix of heart openers, deep breathing, core strength, holding poses, building solid foundations, laughter, and purity of Spirit. I bring the quality of Magic to my practice and have a gift for empathically feeling what is needed in the moment in order to customize sequences to suit each individual as a whole. I believe in the Yin and Yang of life and therefore, of Yoga, by exploring all styles. I especially enjoy teaching Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series 1, Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, and Yoga Nidra, as well as, Breathing and Meditation.

How Yoga Serves Me:

I use Yoga as a tool to help keep me anchored in this Earthly realm. Yoga has taught me how to become comfortable in uncomfortable situations and to trust in my own power. Yoga has helped me build solid foundations within myself and my life. When I was lost and didn’t know who I was, Yoga helped me remeber. Yoga has given me the gift of Self.
