I am a yoga teacher-in-training currently enrolled in a 500 hour certification program. The first 100 hours of my teacher training took place in Dharmasala, India. Since then, I have completed 170+ hours through various workshops and training programs. I have made it my work to learn more about myself and this wonderful practice called yoga so that I can really offer it up when I finally do become certified.
In addition to yoga, my other play includes running, hiking/backpacking, cycling, swimming, and all things outdoors. I am a mother of 3 boys, with a background in nursing.
I enjoy a very dynamic practice (power, vinyasa, ashtanga, etc) but due to some ongoing struggles with back pain coupled with intermittent issues surrounding my mild scoliosis, bouts of sciatica, and a propensity for SI joint instability have also learned the importance of balancing it out with gentler forms of yoga therapeutic modalities (yin, restorative, TRE).
By the time I am teaching, I will have completed the majority (if not all) of my 500 hour certification requirements. I believe I will much to offer my students due to my own lessons-learned on and off the mat.
