   Yin is a very unique form of yoga asana practice that is commonly thought of as “newer”, when in fact many of the postures are as ancient as any other style.  Yin is a great compliment to all our other styles, as well as other vigorous exercises and sports (i.e. body-building, running, soccer, crossfit).  Yin yoga is performed in a warm to cool environment between 70 - 85 F.  All postures are seated or on the floor and held for long durations, about 3 - 7 minutes depending on the pose.  This is in order to access deeper connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and fascia which can attribute to about 40% of our overall flexibility.  It is also a very calming and soothing practice done either silent or with music.  Great for stress reduction, peace of mind and tranquility after a long day, therapeutic to joints and internal organs.

Yoga has had a transformational influence on my life. After years of practice, I decided to teach, and received my teaching certificate from Bonfire Hot Yoga in June 2021. I’ve been enjoying teaching ever since.

I discovered yoga through a friend, and found the practice calming and tranquil amongst all of life’s stresses. On top of peace of mind, practicing yoga helped with my sciatic back pain. Painkillers and traditional physical therapy were helpful on my journey, but it was only through practicing yoga that I was able to live without pain. I faithfully practiced for 10 years. 

Eventually, I fell out of practice when I was balancing two jobs and raising 4 children as a single parent. Without my yoga practice, I felt lost. Each day felt like a potential breakdown was around the corner. I’m so grateful that I managed to make space for yoga once again, and I quickly rediscovered how meaningful yoga is for me. My passion hasn’t died down since. 

With my yoga practice, I feel grounded, energized, and calm. Yoga has trained me to stay focused, and pay attention to detail. With every pose, my focus is on my arms, legs, spine, and neck stacking in correct alignment. The mindfulness prevents my thoughts from wandering off. Having space to meditate, and concentrate on my mind and body, makes me feel peace, love, and joy.

The most rewarding part of being a teacher is that I have to be a good student first. I’ve learned how to cultivate my heart to have patience, love, and compassion. I stay mindful of what I say, my body language, and strive to be a good role model and symbol in front of the classroom. Even when I’m not teaching or in front of my students, I still remind myself to be conscientious of my practice, and how I carry myself.

Becoming an instructor has expanded my knowledge of yoga’s history, symbology, and the roots of the practice, further than when I was just a student. Knowing how much yoga has benefited me, how healing it’s been for me physically and emotionally, makes me feel more connected to my higher- self. The more I practice yoga the more longing I have to explore my spirituality.

Apart from yoga, I love hiking in the woods, traveling, and spending time with my grandkids.

It’s my personal belief that everyone's yoga journey begins with their first breath, arriving at body, or perhaps even before then. When one becomes aware they are on this path it’s simply a matter of time & perseverance.

Around 2003 I stepped into what I knew as my first yoga class. I was recovering from a traumatic brain surgery that left me chronically disabled - I was 14 years old at the time. It was not hot yoga, but a style based in energy work similar to Kundalini or Qi Gong. It was my first experience in what I knew then as yoga, & had tremendous effects on my physical recovery & depression. Later, in 2008 I would begin my hot yoga practice with Bikram yoga, this time I was 19 & mostly recovered from my surgeries with the exception of chronic nerve damage. I always enjoyed being physical & competitive, & at that first class I knew this was going to change my life.

After about 7 years of practice I found myself going through yet another brain surgery in 2013 - this was to be my 3rd operation. Previously I worked in the trades as a metal fabricator & welder, however this last surgery would usher me into my new occupation as a yoga teacher. In 2014 I arrived at my first yoga training. I completed Bikram’s nine week teacher training, spending the next year after that traveling & teaching around the world & across the USA. My training did not stop there, & since then I have trained under Bernie Clark, Sarah Powers, Esak Garcia, & senior teachers of S.N Goenka (Vipassana) & Richard Miller (iRest). I've also done other 200hr YTT’s in person & online as continuing education. My training hours exceeded over 1000, &, since 2014 my teaching hours exceed 5,000.

This is all to say, teaching is my life's passion. It is not a job or a duty. But a privilege & an honor for which I am grateful.

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. 

My yoga journey now includes a 200 hour YTT in Vinyasa flow from Pure 8, a Ghosh apprenticeship with Seth Brown, multiple workshops and training sessions with Ghosh Yoga, and a Yin teacher course at Bonfire Hot Yoga.  Yoga has become an integral part of maintaining and increasing my health. I enjoy every continuing education opportunity.  

The more I practice yoga, the more it becomes an essential to my spiritual practice.  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, mom, and a pastor at Christ the Healer, UCC.
