RYT® 200 Yoga Teacher
I became interested in yoga after teaching various fitness classes for several years and feeling like I was heart healthy and had good muscle tone, but lacked the balance and flexibility that I desired. I trained in Los Angeles, CA with Bikram in 2000 and returned to Michigan to open my own studio. Since then, I have taught in Honolulu, Tucson, Malibu, and Scottsdale. I currently reside in Scottsdale, and work as a nurse for Scottsdale Healthcare, rounding out my passion for health and wellness.
The parallel between my professional life and personal life is not by accident. I believe strongly that the mind/body connection practiced in yoga completes a circle of self-awareness and peacefulness necessary for me to appreciate every aspect of my life. My hope is to empower the whole being of each of my students, so that they may continue to feel the benefits of their practice long after they leave the mat.
