I walked into my first yoga class 6 years ago, and the only reason that had happened is I read the schedule wrong and thought I was showing up for a dance class.. Debating on whether the treadmill or tossing my shoes and turning into a pretzel was the best idea I reluctantly chose the latter. It was love at first bend or breath, or both! You see I went into the class to get a workout and came out realizing that though there is certainly a fitness component to yoga, that only began to scratch the surface of this ancient art of whole body healing. I walked out feeling energized yet calm, I wanted to know more! In 2011 I immersed myself into a year long intensive program at New Day Yoga to earn my 250 hour teacher certification in yoga from a Christian Perspective. Upon graduation, I immediately began teaching adult yoga classes and then took workshops in the Grounded kids yoga program and began teaching children's and teen yoga in 2012 this was a good fit for me as I am passionate about working with children and teens to empower them to find their best versions of themselves, through yoga I was able to teach them this. I knew in my heart what yoga had done in my own life. It had brought balance to my mind, body, and soul. I had the tools to slow down, connect, asses and move forward stronger. I wanted to be able to do more to share this with others. In 2013 I enrolled in the Etowah Valley Yoga Therapy Program. In my individual and small group therapy sessions we bridge the gap of alternative and modern medicine. Whole body healing happens when mindful breathing, yoga/body movement, and meditation create harmony and balance. Empowering, teaching acceptance, and compassion to ones self. The methodology of yoga therapy is complete wellness. I look forward to helping you find your strength that is already there.
