I get inspired to teach yoga because of the way I feel each and every time I do my own practice. I feel a sense of being grounded with a clear view of who I am. My body feels stable, pure and happy, my breath flows easily and deeply and I love the quiet it brings to my busy mind. I aspire to help others find their purpose and limitless potential.
My own personal practice of yoga began in 2000. As an avid runner at that time, I was looking for a way to stretch, but what I experienced was a complete workout for my body, mind and soul.
I learned the poses, incorporated breathing techniques, and most challenging of all, learned how to be still. In 2008 I decided I wanted to delve in deeper to understand what it is about yoga that seems to open and expand our minds and enable people to become happier, healthier and more understanding individuals.
As a student of Rod Stryker, I am working towards my ParaYoga certification, an in-depth and personal approach to developing exceptional teachers and practitioners to lead others into yoga as it was originally envisioned.
