What inspired you to teach yoga?
To be honest, I signed up for yoga teacher training to gain a greater understanding of how I could use yoga more intentionally for my own practice, and to break through some “stage-fright” labels I had placed on myself from an early age. In hind sight, however, I felt a niggling and my even signing up was somewhat of an automatic act. I could hardly explain where the idea came from when I mentioned it to my husband, and the universe gave me zero resistance by opening a spot to be led on this journey by a childhood friend, Sara. Not to sound cliche, but it was like this path had been laid out for me and all I need do was trust and follow it. So I did. It wasn’t long before I realized that being a yoga teacher was, in fact, a perfect fit. I am able to use
my athletic history and awareness of the body and meld it with philosophy. What a dream!
What classes do you teach at Homegrown Yoga?
I teach Mindful Flow on Sunday evenings.
How would you describe your teaching style?
Being a novice teacher, I look forward to my evolvement over time. I would say my style is a mixture of: heart-centered, vinyasa-style, richly-themed, alignment-based.
What is a fun fact about you?
I am a member of the Benjamin Logan Athletic Hall of Fame.
What inspires you off the mat?
I strive to be a student of life. I’m passionate about holistic living, nutrition and creating an environment in which myself and family are able to live as the healthiest versions of ourselves.
Where did you complete your training?
At Pai Yoga and Fitness in Columbus with Sara Goff, Aurora Satya Embodied, LLC
What’s your favorite hot spot in Bellefontaine?
Why do you feel at home on your mat?
My mat feels like home because it is a continuous space of acceptance. No matter what is going on outside of, or within me, when I’m inside those four corners there is great permission to show up for myself, as is.
