1. How did you get into yoga?

I first started practicing yoga because a friend didn’t want to go alone.  I soon found relief from years of low back pain and I was hooked.  I took some time off because life got busy and came back to it because a loved one needed relief from another kind of pain, anxiety.  We have been doing yoga together for the past three years and are both embracing the freedom that comes with the healing yoga has given our minds and bodies.

 

2. Where did you do your training?

I did my 200 hour teacher training through Kansas City Yoga Center.  It was a life-enhancing experience that allowed me to recognize my strengthens, embrace my weaknesses and become a more grounded human being. After training I am able to love and care for the people around me better.  My deepest hope is to bring more acceptance, patience and healing into this world.

 

3. What is your favorite thing about teaching yoga?

I absolutely love to help other yogis (big and little) get what they need out of their yoga practice, everything from physical movements, calming breath work, a sense of commUNITY, to a little bit of childlike fun. I completely believe it doesn’t matter your age or size, what matters is that every single person has the right to be at peace mentally, emotionally and physically.
