I took my first yoga class in the winter of 2012. It was a yoga sculpt class, fast paced, with weights, lots of core and leg work; it was hot and I wanted to throw a weight at the instructor’s head (sorry Rah!). However, despite the “torture” I was hooked. I continued taking the sculpt classes about once a week, in addition to my regular strength workouts, for the next year. I gained more strength and flexibility with yoga and the classes were a lot of fun! It was while taking these classes that I considered teaching yoga. In the winter of 2013, the sculpt classes were on hiatus, my then husband and I were separated, and I missed yoga.
Finally, I found a Groupon for Core Power Yoga, took some classes there, I loved the heat of the classes, the physicality of yoga, the calmness it gave me, and looked into teacher training. In June 2013, I took Yoga Sculpt Teacher Training at Core Power Yoga and received my teaching certificate in July. Upon suggestion, I signed up for the 200hr Teacher Training for fall and received my certificate in December 2013. I have a lot of fun teaching yoga to my students and love to hear about the improvements that they’ve noticed within their own bodies! I ensure a safe practice environment by focusing on correct form and offer variations for poses for all levels of practice. I offer private yoga sessions and private group yoga sessions and can customize these services with nutritional health coaching. I specialize in relaxing candlelight, wine and cheese (and CHOCOLATE) sessions designed to calm your mind and relax your body.
