About the Event
I spent much of my life playing catch-up with my four older siblings. I invested a lot of my time in finding activities that were "mine," and that would set me apart from my brothers and sister. This independent streak could be construed as stubbornness. And it was that streak that kept me from embracing yoga early in my life. Yoga came to me during a vulnerable time in my life. I learned my last living grandparent, my grandmother Margaret, was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer. In the time when I would practice, I was sending my strength to the woman in my life who needed it most -- my grandmother. I experienced the power of this work and haven't turned back. I am still working on that independent streak every time I unroll my mat. But hey, it is a practice and not perfect. As a practitioner, I love powerful flow yoga that ends in a deep and relaxing meditation. The best way to handle what is going on in my head is by first exhausting my body. As a teacher, I love working with beginners who are just finding their way. I try to keep the mood light because, after all, a pose is just a pose. I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at Be Here Now Yoga.
