Yoga started as a hopeful experiment to ease anxiety and has since transformed into a way of life. I believe this practice serves as our greatest reminder that we are always in transition. Moving from one situation to the next can feel unsettling, and I am incredibly grateful that this practice provides a space to intentionally slow down and connect back into what’s important.
While the physical component of yoga is what brought me to my first class, I find that the mental and emotional freedom it offers is what continues to inspire me to show up. I strongly believe that yoga provides an opportunity for us to create a tremendous amount of breathing room—space between what’s happening in our lives and how we are going to respond to it as we come back to the deep knowing that we can do hard things!
Yoga has given me a whole lot of freedom and continues to be a space where I can play, strengthen, process and surrender. My intention as a teacher is to offer students that same opportunity—to create exactly what they need, while encouraging them to meet themselves right where they are.
I completed my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Jacqui Bonwell at the Canton Yoga Shala, and I am forever grateful for her and all my other teachers who have offered their support on and off the mat.
