“Yoga allows me to open, to feel, to believe and trust in my own experiences. It teaches me to be flexible, to focus, to find strength and playfulness. A back injury and long-standing chronic pain drew me to a yoga practice. Here I found calm, connection to my body and no pain; a space I didn’t know existed. It was transformative and I was hooked. A journey of reconnection follows my current teaching style and philosophy – to connect with your body no matter what body or emotional state you live with including paralysis, brain injury or anxiety. My intention as a teacher is to allow you to slow down and connect inwardly with a sense of playfulness leading you to open to your true, authentic self. “
Life is a journey. Live your path in finding YOU!
