I started my Yoga path in 2013 when I took my first class to "be more flexible".  It was then that I was introduced to Yoga Tune Up® and The Roll Model® Method and fell in love.  With the introduction of both, I discovered so much more and realized that there is an even greater benefit to Yoga than just being flexible.  Although flexibility is important, building muscle strength and stability are equally as important.  I love guiding students how to down regulate their nervous systems with functional breathing,  Yoga Tune Up® techniques and movement to target their body's blind spots which can be "stuck" from repetitive patterns. Engaging in this functional movement and healthy breathing encompasses the whole body/mind package.  After suffering a shoulder injury and spending thousands of dollars on medical bills along with physical therapy which did not heal the injury, I also began the practice of rolling my tissues with the Original Therapy Balls and after a few months, regained full range of motion and was pain free for the first time in almost a year.   A few years after taking that first class, I had the opportunity to take the Level 1 Teacher Training for Yoga Tune Up® and The Roll Model® Method trainings.  I have since been certified as a fully Integrated Instructor studying and completing all of the immersions.  I LOVE and am passionate about teaching this therapeutic work, and I know what both of these programs have done for my body and others.  I find tremendous joy in spreading the knowledge of self-care to others. There is no greater feeling than observing or hearing about a student's progress along their journey.  I also am a registered 200 hr. Yoga instructor with certifications in Yin and Energy Medicine®️ Yoga incorporating all into my weekly classes.
