I have been practicing yoga as a student for ten years until last summer when I decided to take my practice to the next level and pursue my yoga teaching certification.

For a long time I was only focused on the physical benefits of my practice. It wasn’t until I became attune to the metaphysical benefits that my yoga practice became something more than just the poses I did in class on my mat. I began to incorporate the values of yoga into my own daily life with my family, friends, and others in the community. What I have found, and what many other yogis would agree, is that beyond the physical benefits, the regular practice of yoga can lead to a decrease in anxiety and depression and an increase in awareness, empathy, self-care, and overall happiness and quality of life. 

I am a mom of two and a resident of LagoMar. Prior to moving to Virginia Beach, I was a first grade school teacher in Baltimore, MD. In addition to yoga, I enjoy reading, the beach, and day and weekend trips with my family to local parks and attractions. I am also slowly attempting to learn to play the ukulele with my son. 

I am honored and excited for the opportunity to work with students at REBOOT. I hope to gather members of LagoMar as well as other neighboring residents in Sandbridge, Red Mill, and beyond to practice and receive all of the benefits- mind AND body- of a regular yoga practice.
