Yoga was not an instant love for me. I was intimidated, fearful, and did not have a single friend here who I could go with. It took a huge amount of courage, to go in and sign up. The teachers I had and still practice under were real women: funny, serious, curvy, toned, younger, older, intuitive, warm and light-hearted. One thing they all had in common was that they cared about their students, recognized them, called them by name, asked questions and just had a connection to them. I felt love from these strangers, and I was hooked.
I'm a forever student of yoga and try to further my education as opportunities arise, as well as popping into near and far studios in my free time. My first 200hr training was with Christina Alexa through Abhyasa Yoga Institute, and my second 200hr training was with Melissa Scagliarini and Katie O'Connell at Vidya Vinyasa Yoga. I've also studied in Yin Yoga with Josh Summers and Thai Yoga with Karen Kenney.
