I took my very first Hot Yoga class at CHY in 2006 and it was love at first sight. Initially it was all about the intense work out and physical benefits but over a short amount of time I began to realize that there was so much more… I took Kim’s CHY 100 hour training in 2009. As I was signing up for this training I was experiencing major lower back pain. During the training I had to listen to my body and accept and work with its limitations. This journey offered me so much personal and physical growth. I can hardly believe it!!! I’ve learned to be more accepting, mindful, patient and kind to myself and others. In 2010 I decided to go to where yoga began and completed a 200 hour teacher training through TRIBE in Rishikesh India. This training was based on Ashtanga and Vinyassa Flow. We spent much time in meditation, chanting, teaching, and practicing. This was a profound spiritual and emotional experience. In early 2012 I completed the Baron Baptiste Level One Training in which CHY models the Vinyassa Sequence from. This experience was intense and pushed me to new limits. CHY has a beautiful community of people which I am grateful to be a part off. I hope to share or lead you through a class soon!!!
