“There is nothing noble about being superior to someone else. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.”
I have had quite the ride since graduating University in 2004. I have a vast and far-reaching background. I hold a Bachelor of Education (Physical Education/Health Education) as well as a Bachelor of Physical Education. After receiving these degrees, I taught in the education system for four years. In 2008 I chose to pursue a career in health and healing. I hold additional advanced certifications in Yin and Rocket Yoga, and have humbly assisted Joe Barnett in a 50-hour Yin training.
I know first-hand that yoga strips you to your core. I acknowledge yoga as a practice of building a deep and unwavering relationship with your Self. I see pure potential, beauty, grace, integrity, and wholeness in all students. I do my absolute best to offer the safe space and gentle encouragement for my students to try what may seem impossible. I too am doing the work. I often remind students that through diligent, intelligent, precise and mindful work the practice of yoga can become “the beginning of anything you want.” Yoga is definitely a way of life for me, rather than just something I “do.” I am consistently reminded that yoga is a “work in” and not a work out.
I have co-facilitated two international retreats. One to rural Nicaragua and one to Corfu, Greece. I have additional retreats in development for 2016. I have helped to develop and lead a 200-hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training Curriculum, with another in production. I am also proudly an Ambassador for the company Funky Yoga, based out of California
My biggest hope is that I may be able to share the gift of yoga with you so that you can find the highest version of your Self. Yoga is where I feel most authentic. Thank you for trusting me with your practice.
