I was first introduced to yoga in the mid 90's when the costume designer at Willamette University saw a need and generously taught an unofficial vinyasa class to stressed out students. Years later I took up long distance running and needed something to help with muscle cramps. As I ran past the yoga studio I remembered those beautiful classes and decided to try yoga again. I was immediately hooked.
Eleven years later, a 200 hour YTT in Vinyasa flow at Pure 8, a Ghosh apprenticeship with Seth Brown and a Yin teacher course at Bonfire Hot Yoga all under my belt, yoga has become an integral part of maintaining and increasing my health.
The more I practice yoga, the more it becomes an essential part of my spiritual practice, too. The study of yoga helps me dive deep into all aspects of my humanity, which only serves to increase my understanding of the divine. I hope to offer the opportunity for that discovery to others as well.
In addition to yoga practitioner, I'm a wife, a homeschool mom, and a pastor at Hillsdale Community Church.
