I started learning yoga when I was a baby. Really! Tummy time? Back strengthening at its finest. Happy baby is named after an actual baby! As babies, we are pros at Savasana.
A dear friend of mine reintroduced me to yoga in 2006. I loved how it helped me remain calm in stressful times. I loved how it brought me back to balance anytime I needed it. I started to realize how good my body was meant to feel.
I had my Aha! moment deciding to become a yoga teacher in a Yin class in 2017. I completed Inner Fire Yoga’s 200 hour teacher training in 2018, and in the spring of 2019 I left the corporate world to embrace teaching, practicing and soaking up as much yoga as possible. Now as the Assistant Manager and a teacher at Inner Fire Yoga, working, practicing, and teaching at IFY truly feels like home. I am beyond grateful that my life path has lead me to this place.
Anything is possible. I believe in divine timing and stars aligning, the energy centers of the subtle body and the meridians, and the power of breathwork. I believe the yogic sages discovered and developed many very important ideas and practices that are extremely beneficial to human existence. I believe in Ayurveda and Jyotish, Sister Sciences of yoga. Yoga is a science, a practice, a union and so much more, and I am learning more each and every day. It has lead me to many things. It has opened me up and absolutely changed the course of my life. I am more myself because of yoga. It is my happy place sharing this journey, passion and joy with others!
My experience with yoga also deepened my interest in spirituality. I practice mindfulness and meditation, Reiki, shamanic journeying, sound healing, forest bathing and more. I am a Reiki Master Practitioner and certified in color and crystal therapy and animal Reiki - dogs are my fav! I live on the near east side of Madison with my boyfriend Matt and sweet dog, Shiloh.
See you around the studio!
