What is Yoga…

Truth #1 The first time I went to a yoga class I thought to myself “I don’t think I can get into this”.

.

Now its one of my favorite things to teach and do.

.

Truth #2 I’ve struggled with being insecure in the competitive world of yogis.

.

Whether you can balance in Tree Pose or a Handstand — either way you’re a bad@$$!

.

Truth #3 I have had to defend myself with my practice.

.

I’ve been personally questioned about my practice and my faith. When I teach, I teach with intention of mental and physical challenge. To improve within oneself. To connect to what feels right for each person and do what they’re body is capable of and give it a good challenge.

.

For my ME TIME practice I find a lot of connection with my faith and intention. It brings a lot of mental clarity for me and that’s what I have really grown to love in addition to the physical aspect.

.

Yoga has so many dimensions and depth to it. I truthfully feel to each their own practice. FIND what YOU like and go with that. I love to teach to challenge the body through balance, movement, toning. I love to FLOW with breath, movement, and music (maybe its the dancer in me).

.

If just moving and balance are your jam. DO IT. If chakras, mantras, chants, etc. are your thing. DO IT.

.

Remove the labels. Remove the Comparisons. Remove the Expectations.

.

Connect to the being the BEST version of yourself — LIVE the best life you can — and LOVE doing it (with no worries or concerns of the status, practice, abilities, etc. of your neighbor yogi)

.

Yoga is the journey of the Self, Through the Self,To the Self.”–The Bhagavad Gita

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
