I started my yoga practice 5 years ago on my weight loss journey. After gaining and losing 100 lbs. My dedication to my yoga practice is very important. Along the way I found more of myself, in self healing scoliosis, overcoming pain and bone density low levels, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic depression & anxiety, holistic approach to living- getting off of pharmaceutical drugs, help healing through sexual and abuse trauma, PTSD, and birthing Trauma, divorce, stretching and going upside down in ways I could never imagine.
I have suffered a lot of trauma and pain in my life, from death, separation, adoption, rape, abuse, self inflictions. My parents’ answer to my depression and anxiety as a young preteen and teenager was to take me to psychologists, and therapists, putting me on a concoction of medications, that enabled my body to shut down more, and never helped my depression and anxiety issues. Through many traumas, with no real help from psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, parents, prescription medications, and treatments….I had to find another way to heal continuously, that wouldn’t break me apart more and more. I found meditation. I found soul searching, diving deep into my subconscious shadows, and ready to face my own demons. I found yoga eventually, and it changed my whole perspective on life.
During my third pregnancy, I finished my yoga training and love to involve my children in their practice, including power flows, Buti yoga, chakra and crystal healing, acro yoga, chanting, and meditation.
I believe in the power and mantra “I am,” practicing self love, dedication to a self yoga practice, breath of fire, helping to make yourself become more self aware. Going through the blood, sweat, and tears of losing 100 lbs., I love to incorporate cardio, core work, buti, and power yoga, kundalini, chakras, fascia proprioception and meridian line healing in one. I love to teach my friends, family, children, elderly, pregnant woman, and anyone suffering from pain or illness.
I have loved every moment of becoming a yoga teacher and the growth of guiding people through their own practice. My love for yoga continues to grow as my own practice grows with all of you. I love to learn from my yogi friends. We are never done learning. This life is our journey, enjoy the process and healing over and over again.
