WHY YOGA: Yoga has changed and impacted my life and I want to share it with others. Yoga has brought me so much happiness and also a sense of grounding during tough times. It reminds me that I’m right where I’m supposed to be no matter what is going on.
HOW I LIVE MY PRACTICE: Accepting myself, others, and whatever life throws my way.
WHERE I AM MOST CHALLENGED BY MY PRACTICE: I am most challenged by not taking things personally. This reminds me of the book “The Four Agreements”. One of the agreements is not to take things personally. When I fall out of a pose or fall out of integrity in my life, I find myself beating up every part of my being instead of using it as a learning tool.
THE ONE THING I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT: The love and support of my family, friends, and music.
THE BOOK I KEEP ON MY BED SIDE TABLE: The Untethered Soul
HOW I HAVE FUN OFF MY MAT: Music and dancing
WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE: I know for sure that life is too short to harp on the past and to stress about the future. The present moment is a gift which is why it is called “present.” My goal is to live life fully in the present moment.
WHAT I AM COMMITTED TO: I am committed to serving each and every person I come in contact with so that they can be the best version of themselves.
WHAT I SHARE IN MY TEACHING: My students can expect to walk away with a sense of fun and accomplishment in my classes. I always urge my students to let it all out on their mats.
