Teaching yoga: I am a certified personal trainer. I began practicing yoga a few years ago and it has been an amazing journey for me. I have been using yoga as a tool to help my client’s stretch, relax and center after a hard work out. It prevents injuries, muscle soreness, opens up muscles and joints. Most of all it helps slow down, focus, center and de-stress.
I often get clients who after getting hurt, while working out or just doing their daily chores, had to go through physical therapy. The physical therapy exercises they were prescribed were mostly yoga based strengthening routines. It became clear that yoga, if done correctly, is an injury preventive, stress reducing tool.
We work out to stay healthy, the same way, it makes sense to be strong and prevent injury rather than strengthen after getting injured. The benefits are countless and for each individual it’s a personal and unique experience. Yoga for Athletes is not about always breaking a sweat, or having the ability to twist into a pretzel. It’s about releasing the muscular tension and tightness while focusing on your energy and centering yourself. Yoga for athletes focuses on poses (Asanas), Breathing to control the energy in the body (Pranayama), and sensory detachment (Pratyahara). Whether you are a runner, cyclist, cross fitter, swimmer, basketball player or a mom pushing a stroller flexibility, controlled energy and acute focus is imperative to achieving your goals.
Come join me as we explore and reset our boundaries and work our bodies and souls.

My 13 year yoga journey has revealed many benefits. What balance yoga has taught me is my inspiration to teach others. My Yoga path brought me to HYMC where I received my 200 hour teacher certification and now I am working towards my 500 hour certification. Iʼm so grateful to combine my knowledge from working full time at a localhealth food store and being a Reiki master teacher with my Yoga teaching. I feel that it allows me to come full circle in creating a holistic atmosphere.
