Yoga, for me, is all about having fun and focusing on self. I first started a dedicated yoga practice in 2012 when I needed a change from the weight room. Years of lifting weights and lengthy cardio session had my body seeking a different type of workout. I loved the athleticism and playfulness of yoga and once I added in the element of heat, I was hooked! It didn’t take long after starting a more dedicated practice to notice the change in my body and in my mind. I started to release stress, tension, and feel invigorated. Early in 2014, I took my 200 hour RYT and am constantly building on my knowledge base, receiving my level 1 BUTI certification as well. Aside from the yoga, I have a degree in Kinesiology and played collegiate golf which has instilled in me a strong understanding of human body mechanics and appreciation for the importance of mental focus.
