My yoga journey began when I was a fitness instructor many years ago and tried a few yoga classes. I noticed the physical benefits right away. However, I didn’t really connect with yoga at the time so I only practiced occasionally; just enough to keep injuries away. I became a running coach and later a high school Track and Cross Country coach and wanted to keep my athletes healthy. I decided I should investigate yoga further. In 2010 I came to PYR to check it out and bought an 8 class pack. I was all in right away. The space, atmosphere and teachers were all amazing. Immediately, I began practicing 4-5 times per week on a regular basis. The real hook for me was that PYR was the first place that emphasized the connection to the breath and that has always been a primary focus for all my fitness and coaching instruction. I finally went through the PYR Immersion Program last fall. One of the most emphasized parts of the program is to “teach from your practice” and I have taken that very seriously as I want my students to feel like I’m right on the mat next to them as they practice, feeling the same things, maybe thinking the same things. I am so honored to have the opportunity to serve my community through the practice of yoga. namaste
