I believe you find this yoga when you need it.  I found it at a point in my life when I was on the cusp of big changes, and I was struggling to find my way.  I grew up very active with gymnastics.  When I practice yoga, I feel at home.  I love being able to move whichever way I want.  As much good as yoga does for me physically, it does more mentally.  At a young age, I was prone to anxiety and worry.  Through the practice, I figure out how to be happy with myself.  I find the strength to change and grow and the patience to accept and wait.  

Early on in my practice, I knew I wanted to make yoga my life.  I went to teacher training in Spring 2012 and have been teaching full time ever since.  Teaching has added a whole new level to my practice.  I learn to effectively and efficiently communicate, to understand how the body moves, and to watch this yoga change lives.  

When I'm not practicing, I enjoy taking long walks in the woods with my dog, reading books, and trying new things, like archery and gardening.
