I was forced to find an activity other than running, one that took me out of the elements because of my weakened immune system and problems with my hip, an injury that occurred while completing a half-marathon. Tired of a regular gym workout and in need of something more challenging and beneficial, I came across hot yoga. A free two-week trial at the beginning of Motto Yoga’s life turned into a lifetime commitment! And now, through regular practice I not only have a stronger, firmer mind and body, but my immunity has strengthened! My practice has transcended into my daily life, and I'm happy to find myself using the strategies learned through yoga to help balance and nurture my family, mind, and body. I love sharing my practice with my two young children who thoroughly enjoy the playfulness yoga has to offer. My focus is on the healing aspect of yoga and how it can be applied to help restore and repair a person’s mental well-being along with their physical. I feel that the two are very-much connected. Because of this interest, I decided to enroll into Motto Yoga’s first teacher-trainee program where I received my RYT 200 certification in October 2016. I plan to broaden my yoga teaching through pertinent trainings, workshops and education.
