My yoga journey began several
years ago while taking yoga classes at the gym as a way to stretch
my aching “runner's body”. Yoga was there, but only as a compliment
to my rigorous fitness training. In 2013, after being diagnosed
with late stage Gynecologic Cancer, I underwent a grueling
treatment that included internal as well as external pelvic
radiation and chemotherapy. The treatment weakened my pelvic bones
and my running, as well as most of my lower body weight training
had to stop. I once again turned to yoga for exercise, but
this time something unexpected happened. I felt a different sort of
shift in my body, but more importantly. A bigger
shift emotionally. I took
a Holy Yoga flow class right after my treatment was over and had an
intense release of emotion that was deeply powerful. It intrigued
me to keep going to the studio and deepening the exploration with
my new body after cancer treatment. Once my vitality and strength
began to return, my yoga practice expanded, and  I found a
great love for Power Vinyasa Yoga, as it satisfied the need for
intense training, but with the compassion and self-love of Yoga- It
was a match made in HEAVEN for me!
My time on the mat became a
POWERFUL place of release, of prayer, and of deep internal healing.
My yoga practice had a profound effect on my view of life, and for
finding gratitude in life's everyday gifts. I felt that new mighty
shift was a deep emotional and intuitive calling to help others
find their own power, through intense movement and connection to
the breath. I listened….. and went to teacher training and NEVER
LOOKED BACK. 
 
My 200hr teacher training took
place in Charlotte with Bella Vita Yoga. I also became 
certified at the 500hr advanced level in September 2018 with Rolf
Gates International.  I AM MOST PROUD TO SAY
THAT i AM CANCER FREE TODAY at my FIVE YEAR SURVIAL
MARKER! 
 
My Power yoga classes will
definitely challenge you, make you think outside the “Yoga pose”
and find a place that both inspires and strengthens you. I strive
to empower my students with a sense of deeper connection to their
bodies once all the barriers of self limiting beliefs are removed.
I also find upbeat energetic contemporary music to be a MUST in my
classes, as I  love to breathe to the beat. Let’s move,
breathe, sweat a little and empower each other, and take life to
the next level. Namaste!
