My asana practice began in 2007 when I was still recovering from a shoulder reconstruction in 2006. The first few years of asana practice were beneficial, but I didn't delve deeper into yoga until I moved to New Orleans in 2012. Once I moved to Nola, I started expanding my practice into ashtanga, iyengar, and anusara. As my knowledge of these forms expanded and I was learning more about alignment and safety in the poses, so did my thirst to learn even more.

I attended training in New Orleans at Swan River Yoga's 400 hour teacher training with a curriculum that was very focused on all 8 forms of yoga. Thus began my 8 month long 'formal' yoga education. In addition, I have taken supplementary training courses in hands-on-assists, beginners, restorative, anatomy, and pre-natal yoga.
My instruction style and personal practice are still very focused on alignment, and my love for yoga involves constant exploration in all the different ways to practice yoga. I've found a lot of fulfillment from playing around with AcroYoga to resting in restorative poses, and taking gentle flow classes to pushing myself in more physically demanding classes.
That's my favorite part about yoga, in the end we all have our own practice, our own style, and our own recipe for how the practice will help us find our bliss.
