MY PHILOSOPHY

As a competitive gymnast, I learned early on how to move my body into different shapes and explore my own physical power, flexibility, and grace towards mastery. I ran cross country and learned how to breath and how to pace myself to the finish line. I played high school basketball and learned what it meant to be a team player, that there is something bigger than myself. I used my senses to learn how to play the piano and how to savor the perfect s’more by the vibrantly orange, hypnotizing campfire flames.

It turns out, I already knew how to practice yoga before I knew the word Yoga, I just hadn’t made the conscious connection of the mind-body experience. In fact, we all know how to practice yoga, we just need to accept the invitation to connect with our conscious awareness. Mind-Body realization is a priceless tool to authentically navigate through the richness of life.

MY JOURNEY

In my early 20’s, the beauty and adventurous spirit of the north drew me to Southeast Alaska to spend a couple of summer seasons as an outdoor guide kayaking, biking, hiking and connecting with people from all walks of life. With more to explore, I moved to Fairbanks, Alaska where I earned a BBA Degree from the University of Alaska. In the coldest, darkest month of winter, a friend introduced yoga to me in my home with a yoga video as a form of movement that I could practice indoors. I then started to practice at home daily, curious and fascinated with my mind and body transformation. After a year of practice and intense self-study, I decided to learn more about yoga at a teacher training.

I graduated as a RYT-200 Yoga Teacher from the Nosara Yoga Institute (NYI) in 2012 and immediately started teaching at a local studio in Fairbanks, Alaska. I also taught for the university yoga club and in the public school system as part of the physical education curriculum. With a desire to advance my teaching and mentoring skills, I continued over the next couple of years to earn my next level of certification as a RYT-500. I also gained specialized certifications in Yoga Anatomy and Teaching Yoga to Athletes. During this time, I made a move back to my hometown of Boise where I currently teach.
