"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."
“I was in yoga the other day. I was in full lotus position. My chakras were all aligned. My mind is cleared of all clatter and I’m looking out of my third eye and everything that I’m supposed to be doing. It’s amazing what comes up, when you sit in that silence. ‘Mama keeps whites bright like the sunlight, Mama’s got the magic of Clorox 2.”
Ellen’s quote perfectly describes my yoga practice! It’s funny and true how the craziest things will enter the mind during yoga practice. I didn’t know much about yoga when I first found an interest in it. All I knew was that Dixie Carter did yoga and she could twist into some crazy shapes. I figured that if Julia Sugarbaker could do yoga, so could I! My first class was back in 2003 with a group of coworkers. It was an enjoyable experience so I came back the following week.
The foundation of my practice is based in Iyengar yoga. I’ve always enjoyed the variety of poses practiced in an Iyengar class as well as the attention to detail given to each student. In 2009, my practice evolved to include hot yoga. Through hot yoga, I found a consistent, daily practice and really experienced the true benefits available through a strong practice.
I’ve been teaching yoga since 2011. When you attend one of my classes, you can expect to have a fun and challenging class. I try to mix in just the right amount of detail so my students have the opportunity to learn, but don’t get bored. Each class is different so if there is something specific you would like to work on, just let me know.
Outside the yoga studio, I enjoy attempting DIY projects around the house, spending time with family and friends, and performing Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
I hold the RYT500 Certification through the Yoga Alliance and I'm certified in Yin Yoga, levels I, II and III.
