My practice has brought healing and wellness into my life, and I have been inspired to share the healing benefits of yoga with others through teaching and healing myself. I earned my 200-hour teacher training certification in Chicago with Moksha Yoga in 2016. My focus is to: create a safe space for students of yoga, deepen their self-awareness, facilitate healthier more holistic choices through acceptance and healing, teach techniques on how to quiet the inner chatter of the mind, to be present with what is, and heighten the “present-moment awareness” (which I’ve learned through meditation it fosters joy, inner peace and contentment in more moments of everyday life). I believe that many of the challenges we face in our busy lives can be worked and even overcome by developing a more refined sense of awareness and by cultivating a practice of relaxation and meditation. After all, science is now proving this physiologically, bio-chemically and neurologically. Studying and teaching holistic lifestyles is my life’s passion. I am grateful for the opportunity to guide others in the powerful healing benefits of practicing yoga, both on and off their mats.
