My deep passion for fitness led me to begin practicing yoga over 10 years ago. As I began my Hot Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training, I quickly learned that there are significantly more important gains from practicing yoga than just the physical ones. In order to expand my knowledge of yoga's inherent mind-body-soul connection, I enrolled and completed the 500-Hr Teacher Training at YogaWorks. Taking part in this professional program involved active participation in workshops, lectures, as well as an apprenticeship program. The person with whom I undertook my apprenticeship, Lainie Devina, is my role model and continues to be my inspiration as I trek along my effortful journey to become a better yogi. My classes are carefully planned as observing students' bodies and adjusting their poses as needed is part of my teaching routine. My energetic and enthusiastic demeanor as a Yoga Instructor is reflected in my teaching methods, as well as in the way in which I communicate with others. I am grateful to share something that I am passionate about with other people.
