GET TO KNOW THE TEACHERS OF BALANCE YOGA
My first certification was in Integral Yoga. Since then, I have taken and assisted Swan River Yoga’s Teacher Training and have taken Swan River’s Advanced Yoga Teacher Training. I am also a certified Meditation Instructor through the Open Heart Project. I lead a 450hr community-based yoga teacher training called Get Bent.
I am inspired by the beauty and terror of this human experience. I am inspired by my students, my teachers, and the yoga and meditation practices that have helped me become a more easeful, more connected, more engaged human.
I practice because we get good at doing the things that we do all the time, and I want to be good at being mindful and aware. I practice because I believe that my body is the lens through which I experience the world and I want to fine tune that experience as much as possible.
I teach because people need these practices. All humans want to be happy and free and I believe that yoga and meditation offer us paths to happiness and freedom. I teach to learn. I teach because these practices should be available to all those who seek them. I teach as a way to offer my love and attention to my community. Also, I teach because I just can’t help it.
