“I started my hot yoga journey in 2009. After a few classes, I found it to be the first exercise I look forward to doing and the only one I miss when I can't practice. I have found my passion and its hot YOGA. I left my classes exhausted, but smiling. I kept coming back to experience that feeling of accomplishment. Now that feeling of accomplishment has become fuel in my life. I practice and teach yoga now not only for that feeling, I practice yoga because it continues to teach me about myself, how to process my thoughts, determination, patience, and relaxation. I feel healthy. I feel strong. I love yoga and yoga teaches me how to love myself.
In 2010 I attended a weekend immersion with Baron Baptiste in Canada. At that point I’d only taken a few Power classes but what I got from that weekend was extraordinary and helped me realize I wanted to teach.
In June 2011 I traveled to Mexico to complete my Level 1 Baron Baptiste Power Yoga Training. It was an amazing experience and what a gift to give myself! In 2012, I attended Level 2 Baron Baptiste Power Yoga Training in New York. In April 2013 I attended a weekend TAP program for Assisting. In May 2013 I attended another weekend immersion with Baron again where I continued to deepen my practice and my love of it. In August 2014 I traveled to Canada to complete Baptiste’s Art of Assisting program.
I had the opportunity to learn how to teach Kids Yoga in 2013. What a gift to be able to teach these young minds how to breath and move their bodies!
In June 2015 lululemon Athletica named me their Alderwood Mall Ambassador. This is a huge honor for me as it allows me to get more involved in my community and touch more lives through the practice and discipline of yoga!
In July 2015 I became a 200 hour Certified Baptiste Yoga Instructor.
Outside the hot room I'm an accountant and a mother of two beautiful children. What a gift to be able to practice yoga with my husband and children. What a life! Namaste~”
