My introduction to yoga began in 2000, while living in Loveland, CO. I had an injury that kept me from my workouts of weightlifting and cardiovascular exercise, so I tried yoga. I have been a student ever since. My yoga practice became a way to maintain a healthy balance of my mind, body and spirit. I started my yoga training in 2002 after my second child was born, gave up my stress filled corporate job and started teaching yoga to kids. In 2004 my family and I returned to Lincoln. Although we loved CO, even good weather and beautiful mountains don’t compare to having your friends and family close by. My yoga journey in Lincoln has taken me to many gyms, schools, businesses, and wellness centers. I have met many wonderful people and have grown from each new experience. In 2008, I received my 200 hour certification at the Omaha Yoga & Bodywork Center and my 500 hour certification at the Himalayan Institute in PA.
My approach to yoga is always based on what is best for the student. I do not believe in forceful practices, if you do not enjoy something you won’t and shouldn’t continue to do it. We are all unique, no one should try to copy someone else’s posture or practice, find yours. Our bodies and minds react differently to stress, we do not perceive or process things the same way. There is a formula for a healthy balance that is unique for all of us. I love working with a student and watching them have the, “I get it”, moment as most teachers know, we live for those moments. Some students find awareness through moving the body, (postures) others though the mind, (meditation) generally it is a combination of practices. The breath is the most important component. Take three deep, slow breaths (so the abdomen moves) right now ….notice what the affect is on the mind and body.
