Why I love yoga and how I started…

I love yoga for all the freedom it offers every individual. Anyone can practice yoga anytime. Reading the ancient texts and learning from the greats has been humbling and a privilege. I especially enjoy studying the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The sutras opened my mind to the fact that we have all the answers to achieve bliss in our lifetime.

I started “going to yoga” about 15 years ago. Often finding myself not feeling like I fit in. It wasn’t until I started to practice traditional yoga that I began to have those ah ha moments. Learning that yoga is more a life journey rather than something you go to.

My yoga practice changed my life, and I am honored to teach this peaceful time-honored practice of yoga to others.
