About this pro

Since I was the age 12, I practiced yoga on and off in Georgia and Nashville. When the pandemic started last year, all the gyms were closed. I decided I would return to my Yoga practice and fully commit to it. I continued to practice on a consistent schedule for the rest of 2020, and signed up for teaching training in January of 2021. I trained with Small World Yoga’s Journey into Power program, and I graduated on March 7th, 2021. I am now a registered Yoga teacher and have my 200 hours! I have been teaching children and adults since my graduation. I teach power and restorative yoga in person or virtually, and classes can either be group or private. If a student is unable to do a certain pose, I know, and will show them the modifications. I push, motivate, and challenge my students. I will never bring my students down. The coolest thing I have come to realize about yoga, is its different for everyone. No pose will look the same when done by two different people. This practice shows us that nothing is ever perfect, but it can still be done well. If you are thinking about trying yoga, or want to advance your practice, feel free to reach out. I would love to be a part of your yoga journey, and help you achieve your goals.

Yoga is something that has changed my life forever, and that is why I have decided to teach it. Before practicing, was not in a place i wanted to be in for my life. My thoughts were crowded, I had no confidence, and no connection with myself. This practice showed me that I am capable of more things than I ever imagined. From holding arm balances, connecting to my breath, developing a healthy connection with myself, and building a community of beautiful individuals. Yoga brought clarity, stability, and peace into my life, and I want others to be able to experience this. My overall goal as a teacher is to get my students to realize the potential they hold within themselves. If a student has a goal, I will stop at nothing get them there. No matter what the goal is.

FAQs


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

When working with a new student, I like to talk to them before  their first lesson. I want to know why they are getting into Yoga, and what they want to get out from yoga. I also want to answer any questions they may have before their first class. I then will make a sequence that will best be fit for their level and what goal they wanting to achieve. 


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

I have never worked as a certified teacher before, but I have taught throughout my life. Growing up, I was an equestrian. I would help my trainers when they would be traveling, and teach the academy students at the barn. I also worked a-lot with mentally challenged kids at the stables. Teaching them how to care for horses, and assist them when they were riding the horses.

How did you get started teaching?

I decided exactly on news years day of 2021 that I wanted to pursue teaching yoga. I had been hesitant about it for over six months, because I was scared to go for it. An old freind of mine had just graduated, and told me her experience. In that moment I knew that this was something I wanted to do, and  signed up for training the next week. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of all ages.  I work with children whose ages range from 5 to 14. I work with students who use yoga more for fitness, while on the other hand I work with students who use yoga for the more spiritual practice. I do work with atheltes. Some of my athlete students practice yoga to maintain or improve their flexability, balance and core strength, or breathwork.


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

Even a teacher needs a teacher, so when I am not teaching, I am a student. I love the teacher who I train with now, because they are a good fit for me. I like their personality, energy and teaching style. My advice for a student looking for a teacher is make sure they are a good fit for you! If you have a teacher you really like, you will be motivated to work harder in their classes, therefor seeing better results in your practice.
