I used to avoid gymnastics in gym class and now I stand on my head every day! I'm a passionate student of yoga and yoga therapist who loves all things yoga and does my best to live the lessons learned on my yoga mat out into the world.
I'm a certified Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist, Therapeutic Yoga Teacher, Thai Yoga Bodyworker, and Body Rolling practitioner. My daily personal yoga practice consists of a wide variety of yoga styles ranging from Vinyasa to Kundalini to Kripalu to Viniyoga.
You know how a lot of motivational speakers urge people to live their passion? It may sound hokey but I'm doing just that. I started practicing yoga almost 10 years ago and it was love at first Downward Dog. I walked away from the corporate world and haven't looked back.
As a yoga therapist (www.BeWellYogaTherapy.com), I am able to introduce the healing powers of yoga to others and help them destress, get to know themselves better, ease physical pain and get more in touch with their body and their true selves. At the very least, I offer folks a 60-minute block of time to get out of their head and be in their body and be in the present moment. Most of my clients tell me that our sessions together are like mini-vacations but instead of bringing back a souvenir, they leave with a lasting sense of physical and emotional well-being.
I majored in English in college, so it's no surprise that I write about my favorite thing in the whole world -- yoga.
