I found yoga because I was hunting for a type of fitness class I actually enjoyed doing. I had tried a number of different types of activities when, in 2004, I found myself walking into my first hot yoga class. By the end of that first class I knew I had found my exercise “soul mate”. What I didn’t know was how much more than exercise I was about to learn. I felt calmer and happy, able to sleep at night and less stressed out. My anxiety levels had nearly disappeared. I became a full-fledged yoga addict. I even tried to stop for a while but the integration of breathing, focus and continual challenges through asana kept drawing me back until I finally relented and committed myself as a Yogi. Around this time I started to want to talk and share about my passion so I went to a weekend workshop with Baron Baptiste. Once again I felt even more drawn into my practise and the desire to teach soon overwhelmed me to the point of taking action.

I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to teach for over a year now and I continue to love all the challenges and rewards it presents. My deepest desire is to be able to share my passion with others and to help them achieve new possibilities both on the mat and through its natural extension into their lives.
