In 2013 I was struggling, breaking down, numb inside, and depressed. I started attending yoga classes because it was a safe space for me. Yoga was where I could go to cry, to feel, to release all of the shoved-down emotions that were screaming inside of me. In the fall of 2014 a friend suggested I take a 200 hour yoga teacher training with her, and I thought it would be nothing more than a healthy way to fill my time. This journey of teacher training led me to realize my own yoga practice as not only a place for physical release, but deepened my emotional, mental and spiritual practice. Yoga is still the first place I go to explore the deep inner discomfort when challenging emotions and situations arise. After that first RYT 200 I have embarked on a 300 hour training, which I completed in November 2017. Since then, I have delved into teaching Yoga Nidra, Yin, and Deep Stretch and Restore practices. Yoga humbles me, it makes me believe in a power beyond myself, something worth exploring and experiencing. I hope from my classes people leave feeling just a tiny nugget of this vast realm, their own expansive conscious connection to each other and the universe. I hope to hold a space where they feel safe in exploring whatever is happening inside of themselves, or simply a comfortable place to lay on the mat and soak it all in!
