After practicing different styles of yoga for 12 years, I found Baptiste yoga. I was extremely familiar with the physical asana practice, but Baptiste allowed me to get acquainted with what was going on inside at a much deeper level. I had just given birth to my first son, and this practice allowed me to be fully present and connect deeply with my son as he has grown through his many stages in life. Now I have 2 boys that continue my practice of patience, presence, unconditional love, being of service to others, and complete surrender. I started my certification process in October 2009 and completed Level 1 and Level 2, as well has Graduated from Namaspa’s 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. Currently I am teaching at Namaspa and The Athletic Club of Bend, and working toward my 500hr RYT and applying for Level 3 in November of 2014.
