When I was 16 years old, I was born again after surviving a coma and a Traumatic Brain Injury. Being so naive about this incident I never received proper physical for what my body underwent. After years of neglect and denial I have been actively healing my body.
I began practicing yoga with the physical poses but then realized that I was injuring myself by overdoing. After becoming a teacher I learned what I truly needed, what my body was trying to communicate with me. I now use yoga as a restorative medium to heal not only myself, but most importantly teach my students. I want to shine light on how important it is to slow down in this fast pace world we live in. Yoga has helped me manage my PTSD, taught me to slow down, and really listen to my body. Yoga allows me to honor my growth in every circumstance and I can only hope to extend this to the students I teach.
As a Yoga teacher with a history of injuries, I focus on alignment and taking a more mindful approach. My classes are infused with aspects of Hatha, restorative, Yin and Iyengar Yoga. Cultivating strength, flexibility, stability, awareness and emphasizing the importance of breath.
