With a childhood background in dance and over 28 years teaching health and fitness, I have always had a love for movement and activity that was both beautiful and creative. Yoga for me expresses just that and is as a great balance between gracefulness and better health. For years I thought maybe I will try Yoga, but was I ready? All I had ever seen were photos of pretzel poses and young petite frames from the Yoga world. Even with my background it seemed intimidating to say the least! I reluctantly tried my first class with a friend who twisted my arm to go many years ago. To my surprise, I was HOOKED and it did not require the shape of a model or the flexibility of a trapeze artist! Where had this been all my life? WHY had I never tried this? The class was NOT easy, a lot of talk about linking movement to breath which was new for me, but it was exactly what I needed! Hey, we are all a work in progress RIGHT? But, the true surprise was the sense of accomplishment and feeling of finding the missing link to my chaotic life that TRULY needed a sense of calm! In such a whirlwind of balancing family along with job stress, it was just what the doctor ordered! I continued to work on and off the mat to find much needed balance in life. Before I knew it, I was in teacher training for my 200 HR RYT with a true mission to improve the quality of life for those around me! Since then I have taken MANY continuing education training's and certifications including Breath Coaching, Personal Training, Yoga In the Christian Walk, and Barre. My preferred approach is on a functional level using gentle postures combined with breath training. I have also trained as an Aromatherapist and have achieved my Diploma in Advanced Level Aromatic Medicine. I continue to mentor under some of the best in Nutrition, Aromatherapy, and Homeopathy to gain more knowledge for myself and those who let me share it with them. My desire is to provide each client a space to find things to ASSIST them in their every day struggle to gain better health and true balance. We are in this together! I am here for you each step of the way! Wishing each of you blessings of good health!
