For me, yoga is a life path - a lifestyle choice that I make. Yoga is about being real and connecting to something much larger than this life. It teaches us to tune out in order to tune in to our inner voice, to acknowledge our own fears, doubts and insecurities, to face the truth of what is difficult in life, and to honor and trust the process. Yoga teaches us to be real, to be our true authentic self. There is no perfection, just the ever-evolving journey.
Yoga is how we live our lives. It is in how we communicate, how we take care of ourselves, how we care for others and how we take care of our planet. It is our ability to look beyond the physical, connect to the soul, to step out each day and love to our greatest ability. Yoga is breath, movement, stillness, presence, space, strength, freedom, compassion, connection, grace, unity and love.
I feel truly blessed to be able to share my love for the practice with others through teaching. My intention is to inspire others to use yoga as a tool to help connect and move inward, begin to feel more and become more aware, both physically and emotionally. Hopefully through this journey, my students are able to discover their own inner strength, self-love and compassion. I believe my role as a teacher is to 'plant the seed' and allow my students to grow their own tree. My classes are deep and thoughtful, emphasizing breath, fluid movement and smart alignment.
I am beyond grateful to be a part of such a beautiful, supportive community at North End Yoga as both the Studio Manager and a devoted teacher for over 8 years. My work continues to evolve thanks to the ongoing support and inspiration from all of the wonderful teachers and students who continue to awaken me in ways I could never have imagined.
