Q. How would you describe your teaching style? What can students expect when they come to your class?
I love Power Yoga and so you can expect me to bring power, grace and enthusiasm into my classes, I will encourage and guide you to go to your edge and beyond – to take the journey within.
Q. What is your advice to people who understand the health benefits of yoga, and would like to start a practice or practice more often, but have difficulty finding time?
There is always time for yoga. Whether it is 15 minutes when you wake up or an hour long class, find a way to work it into your life and you won't regret it. If practicing in a studio is more your thing, commit yourself to a specific class each week and stay committed for a month. After that, it will be difficult to schedule anything else in that time slot as you will have created a new routine.
Q. What are your hobbies or pursuits in addition to yoga?
In addition to teaching yoga, I teach Special Education in an Elementary School. I LOVE my job and can't imagine working anywhere that didn't involve kids. On the weekends you can find me at the White Water Center, running, or lounging in the backyard with my husband and dogs. I love to read and bake.
