What is your yoga story?
I started practicing yoga as a way to compliment a high intensity athletic lifestyle. I sensed that in order to prevent injury and athletic burnout I needed to find a way to rejuvinate my body, and much to my delight I found that yoga also rejuvinated my soul. My yoga journey has placed me in a number of trainings focusing on a variety of disciplines including power vinyasa yoga, yin yoga, meditation and pre/post natal yoga.
What’s your favorite way to slow down?
Hot tea and a good book. You know, the kind of book that makes you feel smarter just by picking it up.
Describe your most peaceful day?
Waking up to the sounds of the birds singing outside my tent. My only activity would involve brewing a nice cup of coffee, to be enjoyed while soaking in one of Colorado’s fantastic hotsprings.
Why do you love teaching Supportive Yoga formats?
I love watching my students find their “ah-ha” moment. That moment in their practice where suddenly they put down their armor and become vulnerable and alive within their natural state of being, within their truth.
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the recognition of effortless perfection in all of our thoughts and actions. It is the shift where we move from a state of human doing to a state of human being.
