"I believe yoga is a powerful practice that can benefit everyone – and everyone should have access to a yoga practice."
In the beginning I came to the mat for the physical aspects of the practice. Over time, with the support of my teachers, I continued the practice not just for the physical postures but for the union of body, mind, and spirit. Over and over again, my yoga practice has been a grounding force in my life. I will always be a student of yoga and have much gratitude for all my yoga teachers. My hope as a teacher is to share those aspects of yoga that can be sustained throughout a student’s lifetime.
I have completed two, 200-hour teacher training programs. One was taught in conjunction with the Deaf Yoga Foundation where I learned how to teach Deaf-friendly yoga classes using American Sign Language. I have also taken Yoga for the Special Child with Sonia Sumar. I am currently part of the Bhaktishop 300 hour advanced study program. I work for the Beaverton School District as a transition program assistant supporting young adults with special needs. My special education experience in public schools includes the areas of Autism, ADHD, and working as an interpreter for the deaf. I believe yoga is a powerful practice that can benefit everyone – and everyone should have access to a yoga practice.
