Having dabbled around with a few different kinds of yoga throughout college, I first found power vinyasa yoga at Amazing Yoga in early 2012 while I was looking for a “good workout.” Convinced that it would be a supplement to the other forms of exercise I was doing at the time, I bought a 5 class pass, and took all five classes in that first week. I’ve barely missed a day since!
It wasn’t long before I realized that yoga had changed me not only physically, but in so many other ways too. It has made me a better person than I ever could be without it. On a day to day basis, my yoga practice has helped me to let go of things I can’t change, to live in the moment, and to not sweat the small stuff. The Amazing Yoga community has brought the most amazing people into my life as well, so many of whom I’m now proud to call my friends.
In 2013, I attended the Baptiste Institute’s Level 1 teacher training in upstate New York and began teaching shortly afterwards. I took Level 2 in October 2015 in Sedona also through the Baptiste Institute.
In November 2014, I attended Mindful Resilience for Trauma Recovery training for yoga teachers through the Veteran’s Yoga Project. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to share this amazing practice with others!
When I’m not on my mat, I love seeing live music, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. An early riser, you can often find me behind the desk at the Amazing Yoga- Shadyside studio, checking people in for the 6am classes.
