Yoga found me at the time I needed it most in my life. Back in 2009 I was practicing gentle yoga regularly on the beach when I lived in Newport, RI. I learned firsthand about the mental benefits of yoga as I had a demanding job and needed something to relieve the stress. My instructor Shelley Duncan was the light I was looking for! She made every moment of practice so enjoyable, so freeing! I eventually found myself going beyond the gentle classes at the beach and immersing myself in a variety of practices, including Power Yoga.
After starting a family and moving to Virginia, running became my only form of meditation, but I still yearned for the Yin to my Yang! Yearning for something more than just high intensity workouts and neighborhood runs, I found myself practicing again. Soon after practicing regularly for an entire year, it led me to complete my RYT 200 hr with Alex Clark of Teall Transformation Yoga.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’ve never taken a yoga class that I didn’t enjoy. I’m extremely grateful for every instructor that I have practiced with and can not wait to continue sharing the gift of yoga with others! Including my two little girls, Lia & Grace!
