I began practicing yoga in 2010 and at the time I was recovering from physical injuries. I quickly discovered that yoga was something that not only helped me physically but also helped my mental and spiritual connection. I started my 200 hour yoga teacher training as a way to further my own practice. However, I soon realized the rewards of teaching and sharing this amazing practice with others. I am a mother of two little boys, who light up my world. In my free time, I love to travel, dance, spending time in the outdoors, creating music and spending time with my family.

- Patience: Yin Trigger
Beginner to advanced.
Patience: Yin Trigger is the perfect complement to your Yang pursuits, which emphasize muscular effort and repetition. In this 60 minute class you'll hold poses for longer periods of time, typically 3-5 minutes each. This practice is slower paced and props may be used to focus on trigger points. You will target and alleviate tightness in deep connective tissue, ligaments, and joints. The slower pace of Yin also allows for a more meditative approach where you can calm that monkey mind.
