Studio Manager, E-RYT 200, RYT 500, YACEP, Yin and Restorative Yoga Certified, Reiki level II, Hot Asana Online Instructor
I first found yoga in a daily television program called Inhale with Steve Ross on the Oxygen channel back in the early 1990's. I enjoyed his easy, laid back and joyful approach to the practice of yoga. Many, many years later I found myself in my first group class right here at Hot Asana and I was hooked!
Yoga has helped me through more than a few stressful life situations and has become a way I hope to reach out and help others through their stressful life situations and gain a healthier approach to life.
I grew up in a little town outside of Scranton Pennsylvania. After high school I joined the Army and have had a wonderful career. 20 years and several duty stations later, my next life transition happened in August 2013 when I retired from the Army. I am excited and appreciative to include yoga practice in the next chapter of my life.
I received my Pilates mat level I and II training from Pilates Certification Center in Raleigh, NC in 2012 and my first 200 hour Power Yoga Teacher certification from Grace Morales in Charlotte, NC in October 2013. In addition, the planets aligned in July 2015 and I was able to attend another 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Virginia Gallagher and Lisa Tiffany in Maya Tulum Mexico! I cannot say enough good things about the resort and training to do it justice, come chat with me at the studio and I will tell you all about it.
My journey with Hot Asana Yoga University to completing my RYT 500 has been fantastic. I love training, getting together with a group of like-minded people to talk about yoga, chakras, meditations, alignment, postures and everything in between is how I like to spend my free time. I feel I can incorporate new themes, ideas and postures and be more creative with all the types of classes I teach because of all the amazing training I have received. My training journey doesn’t end at RYT 500 (it will never end)! I’ll be seeing you in the training modules, in the studios, and on the mat!
I look forward to practicing with you!
