I started practicing yoga in TYC
in 2016 and I was immediately drawn to take a 200 hr teacher
training with Ashley, Doreen and David at the Shraddha School of
Yoga. My teacher training became such a transformational journey
for me as I found myself diving deep in the study of Yoga
Philosophies and developing a more conscious practice of asana and
meditation. About the same time I completed my 200 hr training, I
learned of a loved one’s diagnosis of breast cancer and this moved
me to join the 50 hr teacher training with Be Well Yoga for Cancer
Recovery to have an awareness of what cancer is and how yoga can be
therapeutic and supportive in recovery. I completed my training in
April 2018 and I’m currently a substitute teacher in Michelle’s
Place Breast Cancer Resource Center.
My class is a blend of gentle and
strengthening asanas, mindful breathing and meditation.
I continue to explore yoga in my
own personal practice and study, which includes learning Sanskrit
with Megan and more of Classical Yoga and Tantrik philosophies in
the Neelakantha Meditation class every Sunday with David. I’m also
one of the early-morning risers practicing kundalini, kriya and
chanting in Danny’s Early Morning Sadhana.
