Hello!

 

Like many North Texas girls, I was an intense soccer player with it taking up most of my early years.  I wouldn’t trade that experience for anything because of the life lessons it taught me: inner discipline, commitment & pushing through even when you’re “not feelin’ it.”

One of the downsides of such an intense practice was I had ankle surgery in just 7th grade & many injuries & continued pain after.   I had the drive to be active, but already my body was letting me down.  This led me to yoga.

I started off with home videos in high school, and after just a couple months I could tell a difference in my ankles.. my knees.. my back, even my headaches were gone!  I expected yoga to affect target areas, but I had no idea it could help my whole body.

As I delved into my practice it took on a whole new form.   By incorporating a slow, strong, calming breath it truly moved way beyond my muscles and joints.  I realized even though my body was stronger than it ever was, that’s not what I craved as much from my practice.

Yoga became a retreat for me.  My mat became a place where I could step away from the busyness of the world, meditate on the fullness of Christ, learn how to accept my body as it is saddlebags & all, come face to face with my issues instead of running away from them, learn tools to slow down my brain & to my delight, every class ended in relaxation pose!

I try to weave into my classes the balance of strength & stillness, endurance & grace (with a heaping amount of joy) – the very characteristics of my God & Creator that I cherish, love & rejoice in.  Our bodies are masterfully & beautifully made, and this practice recognizes that!

Yoga has become such a powerful instrument in my life.  I think this practice has a way of cutting through a lot of barriers.  It is my heart to share this with others & to serve and love them through yoga.

I received my 200 RYT (registered yoga teacher) certification from Uptown Yoga with the amazing Jen Chitwood and wise-beyond-her-years, Maria Carroll.  Both women are packed with enough information, patience and grace to last multiple lifetimes.  It was a honor to train with them.
