"Yoga saved my life. I was told, after a crippling back injury, that I would never run, swim, bike, dance, or engage in any strenuous physical activity again. Then I found yoga and my life immediately changed. It helped me heal physically as well as emotionally; nursing me through some of life’s darkest chapters. It is my great pleasure to share this gift of knowledge in order to help others. I believe that mental, spiritual, and physical wellness allows us to a find a foundation to enjoy the rhythm of life on and off the mat. It’s about gaining consciousness and listening to our bodies and minds. Yoga connects the mind with the body, allowing us to express ourselves through the gift we have all been given: Our natural breath. With every class, we embark on a new journey. Allowing healing and growth on the mat that then transfers off the mat. That is yoga’s great and beautiful gift."
