After taking my first YTU workshop with Jill Miller at the 2009 Ojai Yoga Crib, I was blown away with an opportunity to combine so many principles of bodywork, yoga and fitness into one format. I studied massage therapy and then received my BS in Recreation Therapy at CSU, Chico. I worked with various special populations (physical rehab, mental health and youth at risk) for a decade. Once I had my first son in 2003, my passion to stay healthy and grounded was re-affirmed and I took a 200 hr Hatha YTT. Yoga Tune Up® has sharpened my assessment tools, giving me a new lens to view the purpose of yoga, fitness and deep relaxation. I teach yoga, fitness and Yoga Tune Up®, at Cal-a-Vie Health Spa in Vista, CA.
