About twelve years ago, I found myself suffering from stubborn physical limitations and ailments. Unbalanced across the board, I craved fine-tuning on a physical, spiritual and emotional level. Yoga was the answer, leading to a new found sense of harmony and wholeness, a reprieve from today’s chaotic world. It restored my balance and renewed my inner and outer strength. After two years of practice, while working full time in corporate sales and marketing, I completed my second RYT200 certification. In June of 2012, with over five years of teaching experience, I opened Roots Yoga Studio. Within that same year I was chosen by Lululemon and asked to join their ambassadorship program, which has helped me to grow in an even more positive direction. My love for yoga, along with my desire to teach and share my knowledge, has led me down so many amazing paths.
I have had the great fortune to study with many gifted teachers from various traditions. Of my most treasured are Jen Ryan, of The Yoga Loft, and Nicole Grant, of Yoga Mandala, with whom I received my latest RYT 200 certification. In April of 2013 I completed South Boston Yoga’s Advanced Teacher Training with Todd Skoglund and Georgia Reif’. Through their teachings, I have learned to focus on the principles of alignment while creating sequences that are free-flowing yet intelligently delivered with grace and enthusiasm. I am open and approachable and aim to create a supportive well-intentioned class designed to leave students feeling invigorated, grounded, calm and connected.
I am eternally grateful to all of my students who are the reason that I keep coming back to my mat each day and I credit all of the teachers I have studied with for giving me the gift of yoga and bringing balance to my life and happiness to my heart. I am looking forward to this journey and to all the people who make their way through Roots’ doors and hope they find the same love for yoga, the one where you say,… “I wish I had found this sooner”.
