What brought me to yoga?
My first yoga class was back in college in 1996. Flashback to jean overalls and Jagged Little Pill…. It was my last semester, and I took a drawing class, modern dance class, and yoga. It was my most rewarding semester!
Over the years, I took yoga at the local studio wherever I lived and yoga and exercise were a part of my life. Fast forward a few more years, I had two small children and a husband who was working very long hours at the office and …
I was overwhelmed and surviving, not thriving.
My daily experience needed to change.
After taking a break from the day-to-day, I knew that I couldn’t depend on big chunks of time away from my family to reset, restore and rejuvenate. But I had to do something.
Enter = Yoga
I started practicing yoga at a local studio and early mornings seemed work best. It helped start my day off right and helped me handle the stress of being a mom.
Taking the leap from student to teacher
Because I witnessed such a dramatic shift in my life as a mom, wife etc., I knew I wanted to help others who felt the same. I wanted to help you feel the transformation from stressed to resilient.
Now, I teach Prenatal Yoga, 4th Trimester Yoga and Yoga for Moms to provide:
Relief from tension, discomfort &
the worry loops in your mind
Strengthening of core & pelvic floor & entire body
Supportive community of women at a similar life junction
You deserve nourishment on a deep level and it doesn’t have to be complicated!
I have a passion for pregnant women and moms coming together, supporting and appreciating each other, and
making their health, happiness and lives a priority.
