My yoga journey
As a former collegiate volleyball athlete, it was my passion for movement and fitness that inspired me to take my first yoga class.
I found yoga at a time in my life when I felt lost, unhappy, and disconnected.
Yoga cleared a path for me to develop a new way of life, one that was designed to support my happiness and personal development.
The more I practiced, the more I noticed my perspective shifting, and I began to see myself in a new light.
I recognized something powerful and abundant growing within me and I decided to attend my first yoga teacher training in India. Soon after this, yoga became my daily practice and I felt a calling to share this transformative practice with the world.
I've discovered that making a choice to show up and practice daily, regardless of life's challenges, is one of the most powerful ways to cultivate health, healing, growth and self-love.
Life will always offer us challenges. Once we understand this, we can learn to accept the things that come our way and integrate each obstacle we face as a catalyst for growth and transformation.
When we feel aligned, abundant, and at peace within, we open our hearts to experience expansive joy, gratitude, and an unwavering reverence for life itself. We develop empathy, compassion, discernment, clarity, and we begin to feel our intimate interconnectedness to all that is.
Once we remember our divine nature, we begin to see the divine light that radiates within absolutely everything and everyone.
Yoga is union, oneness, love, and connection to the divine within.
The practice is everywhere: on the mat, in our relationships, in the way we view ourselves and the world arounds us.
Yoga guides us to develop self-awareness and self-mastery of our body, mind, and emotions. Through daily practice, we're guided to reclaim our power, find the path of least resistance, minimize unnecessary suffering, and ultimately create a life experience that aligns with our highest good.
One great lesson this practice has taught me is that we create our experience of reality in every moment, based on where we place our attention and what we give energy to.
Daily practice empowers us to shine the light of awareness on our inner world so we can consciously choose to release any thoughts, preferences, opinions, judgements, and beliefs that limit us or cause unnecessary suffering. Yoga reminds us that the liberation, contentment, joy, and peace that we seek is already abundant within us.
Through a moment-to-moment practice of surrendering to the flow of life and accepting the present moment as it is, we open our hearts to embrace our infinite potential and the unlimited possibilities that lie ahead.
Through teaching, I hope to create a supportive community that empowers students to live the practice and harness their inner power to self-regulate, create, heal, evolve, and love unconditionally.
May all beings everywhere be happy and free. Thank you for being on this journey with me.
