I began practicing yoga in 2004 to look for a way to relax, deal with stress, and build mental and physical strength. Over the course of ten years, I practiced several different styles of yoga.
In 2010, I found myself in a power vinyasa yoga studio and that is when I had my “ah ha!” moment. My dedication to yoga began at that moment. Put plainly, yoga has changed my life for the better. Through my practice, I have found inner strength and peace and have increased my strength and flexibility. Less than four months later, I became a certified yoga instructor through Amazing Yoga’s teacher training led by Sean and Karen Conley, specializing in power vinyasa flow. Since then, I have continued my training, completing Baron Baptiste’s level 1 and 2 teacher training.
I have also had the privilege of attending other trainings to increase my knowledge and practice including training with Greghor Singleton, Clair McDonald and Bryan Kest. On the most basic (and important) level, I became an instructor to share the practice of yoga with others and continue to build the yoga community.
By way of education, I hold a M.Ed. in early intervention from the University of Pittsburgh and have worked with children with developmental delays. While working in the field, I specialized in Applied Behavioral Analysis and worked as a behavioral specialist with children with autism.
When not practicing yoga, I enjoy traveling, cooking and spending time with my family. My husband and business partner Jordan, our two children and I currently live in Oakmont. Sean and Karen Conley along with all of the Amazing Yoga teachers have taught me so much and have inspired me to open Amazing Yoga Oakmont. I look forward to sharing the practice with you.
