"Yoga is not for the flexible; it is for the willing."
As a child growing up in North Carolina I spent my afternoons and summers living the sedentary/antisocial life. I didn't participate in any sports and preferred the indoors to out. As an adult I didn't like working out at the gym but I didn't have the motivation to work out at home and I struggled with depression and anxiety. My yoga journey began in 2010 and the physical benefits aside, I quickly felt more focused, more confident, and more motivated. I became friends with my body, after years of not feeling good enough. I am now willing to keep my mind and heart open to all possibilities. In an effort to inspire the willing I attended Hot Asana Yoga University in March 2015 and under the great tutelage of Virginia Gallagher and Lisa Rischitelli earned my 200 hour teacher training certificate. Since then I have taught over 1,600 hours of classes to earn my "E-RYT" designation. Currently I am working on completing my 300 hour certification with Hot Asana Yoga University while I teach at the Hot Asana Colorado Springs location. In my classes I encourage and challenge all levels through creative sequencing and safe alignment. Ultimately, my desire as a yoga teacher is for you to walk off your mat aware of your power, potential, and progress.
