My first yoga experience was an Ashtanga class in 2000 while I was a student at The University of Vermont. I was drawn to the workout and the breathing and how it made me feel in and out of class. My best friend then took me to her Bikram studio in San Francisco in 2001 and I loved it. I enjoyed the heat and the postures in the class. At times when I was able to practice frequently, I noticed that my allergies disappeared and my overall health improved.
After having my second child in 2015, I tried a Vinyasa class and I have been hooked ever since. After practicing Ashtanga and Bikram I appreciate the way each Vinyasa class can be different. I am currently taking my 200-hour RYT training with Rachel Perez and Alex Patton and am scheduled to finish in April. Yoga has been a lifeline and something that has helped me through the ups and downs of life. I hope to share the many wonderful benefits of yoga with my students.
