Tell us a little about yourself! Where are you from? What are your hobbies?
I was born in Manhattan but grew up in Kingman, AZ. I spent a lot of time camping, hiking, swimming, and hunting rattlesnakes. It was quite the childhood. 😉. My hobbies are studying (nutrition and psychology), swimming, hiking, reading, and writing.
How many years have you been teaching yoga?
I have been teaching yoga about 7 years and Pilates about 5 years now.
What is your favorite style to teach?
I was introduced to yoga and Pilates as part of my swimming training, so I naturally gravitated toward power yoga. However, now that I am a recovering athlete with a multitude of injuries (read: a hot mess), I appreciate a vinyasa flow that combines strength with flexibility and teaches my body to work in synchronicity.
What made you want to become a yoga teacher?
I have always been that person who likes to tell others what to do, not in a bossy way, but because I enjoy helping and teaching. Yoga and Pilates are very helpful for my physical, mental, and spiritual health, so becoming a teacher was a logical next step.
What is your advice to someone considering becoming a yoga teacher?
Do it because you love it and not because you need/want a job. The best instructors are the ones who truly love what they do.
What is your favorite part of teaching at MYBO?
The community spirit. Everyone is a part of the family, which is an element that is missing at some other places I have been.
