Yoga found me in 2009 when my body had begun to rebel against years of competitive sports and the frequent, grueling training they required. I had also just gone through a painful divorce and was literally breaking down….physically, mentally and spiritually. Everything I had come to rely upon -a strong body, a fiercely competitive mind and spirit and a will that allowed me to believe I could overcome anything – was giving way. I knew I needed something to give me back my spark, but what?
I went to my first yoga class at Synergy Power Yoga, a Baptiste studio in Barrington, RI. After just 15 minutes I was hooked! I enjoyed the challenge of the physical practice and I learned to respect my body and its limitations. I also learned to be a bit kinder to myself. No longer did everything need to hurt to be beneficial. I came to Yoga for my body, but I continue to practice for my soul and overall well-being.
Because I had such respect and love for my wonderful Yoga teachers, and what they had given me, I wanted to share what I had learned with others. I, therefore, studied with Gregor Singleton and Claire Este McDonald at the Baptiste Institute in Cambridge, MA to complete my 200-hour YTT (2014) and 300-hour YTT (2016). Now, after 500 hours of teacher training, it’s time to start my journey of giving back. I look forward to sharing time together on our mats where we’ll explore and create new potentials.
