Beginning my yoga journey in 2003, I was hooked from the first classed; the intensity, the connection, the sweat. I loved the challenge and the states of bliss. I became a teacher in the fall of 2006, and have continued to be in awe of the amazing magic and the many layers of yoga on and off the mat! I feel so blessed and grateful to be able to lead and share with people on this life's path!
I found my yoga practice in 2009, and 6 months later decided to go to yoga training. I received my Bikram Yoga certification in 2010, and I my yin yoga certification in 2015. I am also currently enrolled in the College of Ayurveda, which is the sister science of yoga. I look forward to continuing to grow with my practice, studying the knowledge behind yoga and Ayurveda, and sharing this knowledge along the way.
I’ve practiced Bikram Yoga since 2013 and have been teaching since 2016. I always try to bring lightness and humor to my life. Humor is often the best medicine, so I bring some of this lightness into my classes. To be able teach and learn from my students has been rewarding and fulfilling. When I'm not in the hot room, you can find me busy with my hair business as an independent hairstylist.
I attended my first Bikram yoga class to stretch out and give therapy to my sore muscles and back pain. I immediately became hooked. I had never experienced a total body workout that gave me so much energy and such a complete sense of well-being. I became convinced this style of yoga was the key to superior health and wellness. An unanticipated but important bonus was how much this yoga was helping my sleep, moods, blood pressure, stress level, cholesterol levels, and countless other things I couldn’t see or feel. Through all my trials and tribulations, yoga has always been a source of solace for me. My goal is to bring the healing of yoga to anyone who wants to be part of our community. I hope you find Purely Hot Yoga to be a friendly and supportive place. I hope you discover the healing, sense of peace and well-being that so many others have found through this practice.
