Yoga has been a part of my life for almost 20 years. It started off as a form of fitness, I’ve always loved challenging my body so I practiced hot yoga for over a decade. A disc injury at work put me on the sidelines for over a year. As a way to transition back into my yoga practice, I decided to try restorative yoga classes and slower paced vinyasa classes. I was hooked. I never made the breath and body connection before because I was so busy working out my muscles, these different types of classes changed yoga for me. It became a more spiritual, more meditative practice. A few years ago, yoga changed for me once again. I went through a very difficult time in life and was left lost and depressed. As a way to climb back up out of the dark hole I had dug for myself, I decided to dive into a daily yoga practice. Every morning, in front of our beautiful bay window, I began with still meditation then meditative movement. I saw the veil lifting and the light returning to my heart. The depression was slowly melting away and my mood was lightening. It was then that I realized yoga needed to be a much bigger part of my life. I made the immediate decision to sign up for yoga teacher training and became certified in transformational yoga and bodywork in July of 2018 . The experience was profound and unforgettable. Now, I share my love and passion for yoga with others and guide them on their own healing journey. #yogaismymedicine

When I first started my teacher training program, I suffered from panic attacks and mild depression. I was pleasantly surprised that by the end of the teacher training, my anxiety attacks were gone and I had a happier outlook on life.

Even at a young age, while working at my parents restaurant, then later in pharmacies, working on my feet took a toll on my back. With extreme back pains and spasms, I didn’t want to rely on medication to get through the days. I discovered yoga and used it as my prescription. At times of pain, I practiced couple times a day, and at least daily for prevention. It has worked wonders for my back pain. Yoga has restored my physical ability and has helped me have a more balanced life.

After learning and including the physical healing abilities of yoga to my life, I came to understand the importance and gift of being present. This teaching through my yoga practice has helped me be more present as a wife, as a parent, as a daughter, as a family member, a friend, and an employee. Refocusing on being present is always a work in progress for me and having a regular yoga practice in my life, continues to remind me of when and how to be present. Being present allows me to have valuable relationships with those I am honored to have in my life. Namaste #yogaismymedicine
