I first came to yoga in 2001 looking for a physical work out. After having children my practice stopped due of the demands of being a working mother. In 2013 I transitioned to a new job at a small high-tech company. I soon became overwhelmed balancing my new position and motherhood. I found my way back to yoga and after the class I felt relaxed, calm and the tightness in my chest was gone. When I came home from work my son noticed a change and asked what was different about my day? It was then that I realized that my stress and need to get everything done right now was leaving very little room for me to be present and more importantly it was affecting my relationship with my family.
As my practice grew so did my love for yoga. I stopped imposing unwanted stress on myself by attempting to do everything immediately. I was able to remain present, which allowed me to fully enjoy and appreciate each moment. I am a wife, mom of three, manager of a test team and a type I diabetic. My passions include being outdoors, fitness training, reading and cheering my kids on. My decision to become a yoga instructor was born from the desire to bring an awareness to others of how there are moving through life. I completed my YTT-200 hour at Revolution Community with lead teacher Cindy Boulter. I completed my YTT-300 at Down Under School of Yoga in Boston, MA with lead teacher Natasha Rizopoulos. I studied yoga for pelvic floor health with Leslie Howard and am working towards my pelvic floor yoga certification under Leslie’s guidance.
