I started attending Yoga WIld in November of 2019 because I found their focus to be wholesome and truly community-oriented. This is one of my favorite studios to attend and hope many others try them.
Beekeeping, belly-laughing and boxer dog loving are a few things I do best. Out side of those, I’ll take you up on any offer that brings smiles and time outside connecting and playing. I hike, trail run, dabble in rock climbing and I’ve been recently been initiated into the mountain biking “club” (gnarly falls required). I’ve been doing big work around body-positivity and acceptance for years and yoga was my shift in learning the power of owning and re-writing my STORY.
Before: I came to yoga when I needed it in a very reactional way; I used the physical practice and release of yoga asana to heal hurts and get to a point of, “ok, I’m good,” then moved on again and away from my mat until the next emotional battleground. Eventually the cycle became tiring and I had the thought, “why do I have to keep starting over? Why does the sense of peace and contentment keep slipping away?” I sought my teacher training experience as a way to deepen my own practice and understand more of what yoga offers.
Now: I’m stoked there’s always more to learn, but having been exposed to such depth and gaining such powerful tools for living- I knew immediately I wanted to teach to share what I’ve learned.With so many competing roles and associated responsibilities vying for time day-to-day… coming back to my practice again and again, both on and off the mat can help me to feel grounded, more collected, and calm. Yoga offers a way and a place to hit pause- I hope to offer others a moment to breathe and pause, a moment to feel ease and grounding.
