I went to my first yoga class back in 2008 as a recommendation from a friend to heal mild anxiety. Focusing on the breath and the awareness of being in the present allowed me to let go and not worry. This healing through yoga inspired me to become a teacher to share the gift of breath with all my students. I am a 300 hour certified yoga teacher from Awaken Yoga School.
I continue my Yogic education by assisting many teachers in the Cleveland area and by studying with master teachers such as Judith Lasater, Erich Shiffman and Doug Keller. I am also honored to be a part of the Mentorship Program for the Summer Intensive teacher training at Awaken Yoga School helping to guide future teachers on their yogic path.
In addition to being a yoga teacher, I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Usui Reiki Master. I have been receiving Reiki treatments for many years and had my first Reiki attunement when I was 13 years old. It wasn't until 2009 that I began deepening my studies of Reiki and slowly over the years became certified at a Master level. I now have the ability to teach, attune and guide other students who would like to learn about Reiki.
"The Job of a yoga teacher is to reflect back the inherent radiance and inner goodness of each person. And of course, the only way you can do that is to find it in yourself" -Judith Lasater
