Yoga found me in the early 2000‘s, as I was getting certified as a fitness instructor during a difficult period in my life. At that time I saw yoga only as an excellent physical exercise. Several years later I began to practice outside my home and visit studios, slowly getting the idea that there is a much much bigger picture with yoga, one that can truly help people become more mindful more calm and discover they are true inner selves thus leading more productive peaceful, positive and fulfilling lives. I decided to get certified in 2018 like most people, following a series of difficult events. The universe led me to Stacy Plaske and Michael Aronoff, the two teachers with whom I am barked on my 200 hour Certification. The immeasurable amounts of love and learning, experiential enlightenment that I have found and continue to find with Stacy, Michael and all of the students have led me to wanting to share that love for yoga and for the lifestyle it produces. I didn’t think I wanted to teach yoga because I am a teacher of social studies, and have been for 25 years. As much as I love it, going home from a six hour day to do more teaching didn’t seem to make an option. However, the urge to share this in the most humble way possible and use it with the creativity that comes to me musically, has become very strong. Thus, I continue to attempt to fulfill my Dharma, and let life lead me where it will.
