I found yoga as a teenager at a big health club. I took it as a personal challenge; to be able to get into poses I thought were once impossible.
This initial reason for practicing yoga morphed into much more as I began my own home practice. Without realizing it, I was diving deeper into the true reason yoga was created; to be a tool to achieve something much greater than the poses we practice in modern yoga today.
During a time in my life that was revolved around doing things that were abusive to my body and my mind, yoga gave me an alternative.
It reminded me that my body is beautiful the way it is, and helped me peel off the layers of negative body image, self-doubt, and victimization to help me uncover my true self; a strong, capable person!
This ability to find the strength in yoga poses eventually made its way off of my mat & into my daily life of mom-ing, discovering other passions, and eventually led me to chasing my dreams of becoming a yoga teacher!
I aspire to bring the bright side of imperfection to yoga;
To teach and spread yoga in a way that brings more self-love, accessiblity & FUN.
