My first experience with yoga was spring of 2016, shortly after Amazing Yoga Oakmont opened. My husband and I had recently became residents of Oakmont and I liked the idea of being able to walk to a local “work out experience.” So, I tried AYO having no clue yoga could be so challenging yet, rewarding, exciting yet, calming, HOT yet, soothing at the same time. I immediately fell in love with the practice, even the sweat!

Since then, I have come to understand that vinyasa power yoga is so much more than powerful, flowing sequences, but about pursuing the present, surrendering to the moment and practicing the art of quieting the mind through breathing during physical effort.

My life is better because of yoga. My body feels better because of yoga. My total well-being is better because of Amazing Yoga!

I’m so thankful to be a part of this community and I hope to be an inspiring addition as I bring and offer my own uniqueness and the goodness within me.

I completed my Level One Power Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training through Amazing Yoga under the teaching and guidance of Sean and Karen Conely in the South Side of Pittsburgh September 2018. You will see me regularly practicing at Amazing Yoga Oakmont and serving up something fresh and delicious at our Salud Juicery!
