I have been teaching vinyasa power yoga for six years, and practicing for eight years.
My most inspirational teachers are Kathryn Budig, Tiffany Cruikshank, Jason Crandall, Jo Tastula, Baron Baptiste and Sadie Nardini. I became RYT 200 Hour Certified in 2012 and completed Baptiste Level 1 training in June 2013 with Baron Baptiste. I currently have over 300 hours of training and am completing Yoga Shred training with Sadie Nardini.
In 2011 I gave birth to my daughter seven weeks early. For the first 18 months of her life I unknowingly suffered from PTSD and postpartum anxiety. The one source of calm during that time for me was yoga and it was the practice that eventually led me back to myself.
I teach yoga to empower people to empower themselves – just like it did for me.
My classes are a playful mixture of challenging asana sprinkled with a dash of humor to lift your spirit.
You can find me on Friday mornings at IShine Yoga in Huntersville, NC.
