My journey into yoga began in 2011 when I got clean and sober. After spending a few hours in yoga classes I knew it was her missing link to a holistic recovery approach. My motto is 'yoga is a lifestyle, not an exercise'.
My story involves the big and little 't' traumas, my battle with drugs, being a teen mom, losing myself, finding myself and everything in between. I came to the rooms of yoga because a trusted friend suggested it may help my anxiousness. Boy did it.
Here, eleven years later, I'm a 500-hour certified yoga teacher, meditation teacher, Ayurvedic practitioner, and recovery coach with a B.S. in psychology. My classes are a melding pot of yoga philosophy, recovery principles, and life on life's terms. I teach slow flows and restorative yoga to balance the nervous system and I've been trained in trauma-sensitive care.
