Why Yoga?

My journey to yoga was not by accident, it's a way of life. Anyone who has felt that there is a deeper yearing for life and has contimplated this complex body and mind of ours has already dipped there pinky toe in yoga.   It is a practice that intrigues the mind and body into craving more, although it may be hard to put your finger on exactly what.   In 2011 after my twins were prematurely born at 27 weeks I got very sick.  My left arm went numb and I felt like I was getting electrocuted every time I bent by neck.  I ran out of breathe simply walking to the mailbox and started to panick.  I found a neurologist and  over a dozen MRI scan’s, revealed I had spots on my brain and cervical spine. I have a neurological condition related to MS called Transverse Myelitis. Through the course of seeking multiple expert medical opinions, yoga and meditation kept coming up as a known source of relief. I made up my mind, I would try a homeopathic approach to heal. I had dabblesd in yoga in the past just out of curiosity but with no real intention.  Now, I had an intention, to heal my body and depressed mind.  I believe this practice helped to pave the road to my healing and only want to share it with others.  I am very fortunate and continue to heal and thrive everyday with my practice, modern medicine and my faith.  I am a thriving woman and will contiune to evolve everyday.  

I teach Hatha Yoga, Flow Yoga, Aqua Yoga, Yoga for golfers and I am a personal trainer. I know that list seems long but when you love what you do, you can’t help but want to learn everything. I recently went back to yoga school and recieved by 300 hour RYT, which is like going back to college to earn a higher degree.  I am now a proud 500 hour RYT.  

I try to keep the yoga talk light because it is foreign to most people. It’s whatever you want it to be. It becomes your practice. Yoga can be a way of healing, to self soothe the mind, build concentration and alertness, a way to lose weight, lower stress and blood pressure, relive pain, ease arthritis, become more limber, become a better golfer or tennis player.  The list is endless. Give it more than one shot.  There will be a teacher or class you fall in love with. 

The first time you do anything it can be overwhelming. The pay off is priceless.

What type of class do you teach?
The most important thing to me is that my classes are approachable and not intimidating. I encourage laughs and the whole family can come as you can see we have ages from 18-75 years old. We even have a family of dolphins that have become regulars.  It’s a fun multi-level class full of surprises.
I am a certified Hatha, aqua and golf yoga teacher. I’m also a certified personal trainer. I study relentlessly because I have a passion for becoming a better person and leaving every person I touch better off then they were.
