“Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful of your life.”
– Mark Twain
One of my favorite quotes for over 15 years, it is a mindset that I choose to bring not only to my daily life, but my mat as well. As a RYT 200 teacher and certified Reiki practitioner, I enjoy the opportunity to help my students in making each practice a beautiful one. I offer Hatha/Flow and Restorative style classes with an emphasis on bringing peace to the mind and body, offering guidance through asanas for my students as they make each practice their own. I enjoy teaching all-level classes, while offering modifications for practitioners that may want to go a little deeper. Yoga has been a constant centering force in my life, join me in finding the joy yoga brings.
Originally I came to yoga to help deal with anxiety and have found peace both on and off the mat. The fact remains that yoga has done more for me than I could ever do for yoga. Giving back through teaching, by sharing the principles of a healthy mind and body within a practice is a delightful start. Yoga has changed my well-being, an immeasurable gift that I aim to share.
How I came to love yoga and why I stay:
My entire life, I’ve been a hockey player, hockey holds my heart, yoga holds my soul. Not to get too emotional, but yoga saved me. When I moved to Maine, I moved away from my friends, family and ability to play hockey regularly, I was lost. Happiness is found from within, and yoga did that for me. Finding the right studio and the right group of instructors helped shape me into the teacher I choose to be today. A teacher who resonates with her students, who finds peace from familiar and unfamiliar faces joining me in practice, but most importantly of all, a teacher who makes each student feel as though they are a part of something more, each moment they’re on the mat and throughout their daily lives. If you practice yoga, your mind, body and heart will never be alone.
