Yoga Group & Private Classes
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, I started my yoga adventure in 2012. My friend took me to my first yoga class. I did not enjoy my first class and left thinking that yoga was for the birds. In 2013, I decided to give bikram yoga a try. I quickly fell in love with the intense workout and extreme heat. I felt centered and strong. After a few months, I grew bored with the same practice everytime and started looking for something different.
That's when I found Suncrest Yoga. I enjoyed the vigorous vinyasa flow and heat of the room. I also enjoyed that fact that the classes were different every time. Then I started incorporating yoga into my weekly workout rountine and found a new sense of self.
It wasn’t until the summer of 2014 that I considered teaching yoga. I attended a private paddle board yoga session on Cheat Lake and the sense of peace with the water made me feel connected.
After that, I decided to fully focus on yoga and add more to my weekly workout routine. In December of 2014, I signed up for a teacher training and practiced most days from then until her training began in January. I completed my 200 RYT in May of 2015 and have been teaching in the classroom, on the dock, and on the paddle board since.
I want to bring light and energy to my students. I want to share what I've found in my own practice with others. I like to teach my classes in a way that encourages laughter and accepting exactly where the student is. I hope that my students can find peace of mind for the hour that they spend on the mat with me, and let that carry into all aspects of their lives.
“I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on the mat.”
