9 years

When/Where did you graduate from Bikram Yoga teacher training?
June 2006 in Los Angeles, California

Why did you decide to become a teacher?
To eventually own my own studio one day but now it’s more for self gratification, seeing students of all ages, sizes and personal struggles heal, grow and transform their lives

What is your favorite thing about teaching?
Being able to help people get to the path of self-realization, acknowledging the relationship of their mind and body. Having students talk about how much the yoga is helping them in more ways than just the physical and how it is changing the relationship with themselves as well as with others.

What is your favorite quote?
“It’s never too late, it’s never too bad, and you’re never too old or too sick to start from scratch once again”

Is there anything else?
Never say never. If you are truly ready for change, then change will happen. It takes discipline, dedication, determination and time. This time is for you to become stronger, healthier and overall a better person. How can that not be reason enough to make yoga a part of your life? This practice goes beyond exercise, it’s a release on many different levels. If you are looking for change, make it happen. Trust the process, be consistent and embrace every class and accept what has been accomplished, no matter how small or how large the breakthrough.
