My yoga journey began in college when I took a semester of Yoga for PE credit. By the end of the course, I was a different person. I was more open in both mind and body. I continued practicing in a class setting, but was forced into my personal practice when the studio closed and there were no other local options. I studied and created my own private practice until in 2010, after the birth of my last child, at which time I began practicing in a class environment again adding two classes each week to my personal practice. Becoming a yoga instructor was secondary to my own desire to grow as a student, after plateauing in my own growth after a decade of Yoga. When I began my teacher training, my intention was merely to be a sub for my own regular teachers, not to hold classes of my own because my full-time career and being a mother required so much already. However, the knowledge and understanding that I gained, the love of sharing the benefits of yoga with others, and my own desire to give back to my community has pushed me outside of my own “plan”. I was amazed at how much I love teaching!!
My teacher training is through the College of Purna Yoga, from which I am a 200-hr level graduate. I teach in the style of Purna Yoga which was developed by Aadil Palkhivala. Aadil, regarded as one of the world’s top yoga instructors, began his own formal training of yoga under B.K.S. Iyengar, with whom he studied and worked for decades. He later refined his own teaching, based on that of Iyengar, and developed a style of yoga called Purna (meaning whole) Yoga to allow students to practice throughout their entire life - not simply perform acrobatic and challenging postures for a few peak years. This is a multifaceted Yoga - combining asana, meditation work, yogic philosophy and nutrition/lifestyle - to encourage practitioners to become more balanced as a whole person.
It is a beautiful, intentional, alignment based practice to strength and at times heal the student from the inside out.
Holding firm to my believe that this is a life-long journey, I am continuing in my own practice and maintaining my dedication to becoming a whole yogi and sharing with as many as I may along my path. I look forward to walking with you on this path. ~Namaste~
