A low back injury in my early 30’s brought me to my first yoga class. My first thought, was ‘Wow’, this is more than exercise! This is a lifestyle… a discipline. Since that day, yoga has always been a part of my life. From practicing power yoga, to prenatal yoga during my pregnancies, to a heated power flow, I realized there is a style of yoga for everyone. In 2014, I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training in the Baptiste style. I tend to teach a more powerful Vinyasa form of yoga. Each class will be different. However, I still gear my classes to all levels. I truly believe people will be amazed at the physical and mental strength they didn’t know they had. My training has taught me self-acceptance, and discovery that go far beyond the mat. On the days I don’t teach yoga at Pure Energy, you will most likely find me in the Zone room challenging my body in a different capacity through strength, cardio, and HIIT classes. Yoga has become the balance I need in the gym and outside. My goal for every class is to challenge my students to discover their full potential and achieve their ultimate balance.
