About this pro

I have been teaching yoga for over 7 years. I am very passionate about helping others relieve pain, gain flexibity, strength and balance, lose weight, improve focuse and relieve stress. Yoga is a very personal practice, and sometimes students would rather work one on one with a teacher then to join a class. I am here to do just that. I am certified in Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga. 

I love helping people and seeing people improve their health, reduce their pain and improve their overall quality of life. It is a very fullfilling career. I love being a yoga teacher!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Meet and greet. I like to get to know my students. I like to get to know the reasons they want to practice yoga and establish a schedule of practice. I like to answer any questions they may have about the practice. This is a free consultation via phone or email.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

*BIKRAM YOGA: I graduated in Fall 2010, and I have been teaching and practicing full time since then. This is an amazing series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises that works the whole body inside out bone to skin. it helps people improve their strength, flexibilty, balance and focus. It helps with weight loss, pain relief, stress, improves all the differnt systems of the body: circulatory, respirator, digestive, nervous, lyphatic, endocrine, reproductive, muscular, skeletal, integumentary, excretory. Literally every system of the body improves once you begin a regular Bikram yoga practice. 

*PREGNANCY YOGA: I practiced Bikram yoga through my pregnancy, so I am very knowledgable about the pregnancy series, and I can guide pregnant students through their practice with the proper modifications.

*CHILDREN'S YOGA: I teach the the Bikram series plus some additional yoga games and postures. The class is 60 mins. I teach children of all ages and children with special needs.

*ROCKET YOGA: I graduated in July 2017 and I have been teaching the class weekly since then. The class has gained popularity and is now being offered twice a week. This is an ashtanga vinyasa class and is fun for practicioners of all levels. We use blocks and straps and I can show my students how to do the postures to the best of their ability. This is a very fun class! 

*YOGA COACH: I have trained may athletes/participants (both adult and youth divisions) for yoga competition through USA Yoga Federation. http://www.usayoga.org/

How did you get started teaching?

I started my proctice in 2009 and fell in love with the Bikram series. 6 months later I went to a 9 week teacher training. I lived there for the course of the training with nearly 400 other students from 43 different countries. It was an amazing experience, and I gained so much knowledge. We studied anatomy and physiology, we became CPR certified (I recently renewed my CPR certification), we learned about the 26 postures inside and out and memorized the proper instructions to give our students and how to adapt the postures for different abilities and body types, and we learned about yoga philosopy.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have had students of all levels and abilities. I have taught students who have come to practice as a form of rehab after surgeries, students who have had heart disease and slowly reduced or eliminated their medication, students with arthritis, rhumetoid arthris, scoliosis, mestrual problems, fertility problems, cancer, emotional or pshychological problems like bipolar or depression. I really can't think of a student that I havn't taught. I have seen it all. This yoga is therapy for all problems, and I have witnessed so may postive changes throughout my 7 years teaching. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently taught a Rocket yoga class where I was helping the students with their headstands and as I let go and allowed each student to hold the pose the rest of the class began clapping and encouraging each other. It made me so happy. I love to see people get excited when they break through their fear and accomplish something they never thought possible. It is even more exciting when everyone feels the energy and and can't help but clap and support their fellow students. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find someone that inpires you. Someone who makes you feel good, but also encourages you to step outside your comfort zone. You want a teacher that makes you feel comfortable stepping outside your comfort zone, because this is where true progress is made. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What benefits do you want to get from your practice? What are your goals?
