I first found yoga in October 2012 when I was looking for a new challenge after having given up running due to injuries. I dropped into Dancing Mind one Sunday afternoon and knew immediately I had found a new home.
The DM team, the community and the practice itself were so much more than I anticipated, embracing me from that first moment. I knew quickly that I wanted to learn more about yoga and share it with others. So I signed up for the Assistant Program within weeks of my first practice. Assisting was so rewarding that I decided to join the Teacher Training program that following Spring. I began teaching at DM in the Fall of 2013.
Yoga has taught me to fuel, feed, and restore myself and that we all need to care for ourselves so we can lead happy and productive lives and be of service to others. I learned that joy and fulfillment is my reward as I serve the DM community, passing along the things I’ve learned and helping to open up new insight for others.
As a teacher I strive to build strength and confidence in each of my students while adding space where students can see themselves more clearly in a moment of quiet and contentment. It is in this quiet clear space, I have learned that everything and anything is possible. I am honored to be a part of the DM team and to be of service to the entire community.
