We are all on our own personal journey. I would like to share a little bit about my yoga journey with you…

I attended my first Hot Yoga Class in this very studio on August 12, 2007 and fell in love with the mental and physical connection I felt. I began practicing 3 – 6 times a week, shed 40 pounds in 4 months, and was able to discontinue the use of all of my prescription medications. I began to feel healthier and stronger than ever. Convinced of the benefits of yoga, I continued my daily practice and began to deepen my dedication to and knowledge of yoga.

I began my teacher training in 2008 and since then have completed multiple 200 and 500 hour certifications, Yin Yoga training and Mindfulness Meditation Vipasana. My trainings have been diverse but my teaching style has been primarily influenced by Grace and MyLinda Morales, Jimmy Barkan, Rolf Gates, Chris & John Yax , Deepak Chopra, Bryan Kest and Paul Grilley. I fundamentally believe that anyone can change their body and their life. I believe we can in fact, grow younger and stronger. I would love to show you how Hot Asana can be a part of that change. It doesn’t matter when or in what condition you start…JUST START. Your best YOU may very well be yet to come.

What is yoga? The practice is really whatever you want it to be. It can be serious, it can be simple, it can be passive, it can be aggressive: it is yours to decide. The decision may change monthly, it may change daily. Your practice may be solely for the body, or maybe it is for the mind or the spirit. It could very well be for all of the above. You don’t have to be flexible physically but I highly recommend approaching your practice with a flexible mentality. As a practitioner for 15 years, and a teacher for 12, I can tell you that it is worth every challenge and every drop of sweat. Now let’s get it!

RYT-200, ACE CPT (Certified Personal Trainer), Mat Pilates, Certified Hot Asana Assist. I'm also currently pursuing 500 hrs through HAYU, another CPT with NASM, and GFI (Group Fitness Instructor) with AFAA.

My fitness journey began in high school when I saw a doctor for back pain caused by poor posture as a result of lack of muscle strength around my spine, who prescribed yoga and pilates to strengthen my core. I started with Pilates and loved it enough to become a Certified Mat Pilates instructor. Soon after I began a hot yoga practice, and in college became a Certified Yoga Instructor. After college, I moved to Nashville where I discovered Barry's (formerly Barry's Bootcamp) which really ignited my passion for fitness. I had struggled with my weight through high school and college, and Barry's was the first workout from which I really saw physical results, and where I felt more than part of a community, but part of a family. For a few years I also battled mental health challeges, and fitness not only gave me confidence in my physical body again, but healed me mentally and emotionally. After working with a few Barry's instructors as personal trainers, I was inspired to become a personal trainer, and am now working toward becoming a group fitness instructor as well. If I can inspire in just one other person the same life-changing passion for fitness that others have inspired in me, then I will consider that a success!
