Why Yoga?

My mission is to empower my students with the tools they need to cope with the stress in their everyday lives.

I’m a lifelong yogi, runner, and triathlete. I’m passionate about nutrition, healthy biomechanics, and mental toughness. I’m also an asthmatic, insomniac, I’ve struggled with chronic fatigue, and at times I’ve had more anxiety than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. 

I know the struggle of trying to manage my stress throughout the day then coming home and barely having enough energy to make dinner, let alone do the million other things on my to-do list. At these points in my life, I found myself coming back to yoga and meditation over and over again. I added in regular breathwork to my practice and I had finally found the key!

Yoga, meditation and breathwork for me are the special sauce on the big mac of my life. I don’t know how I would manage without these practices.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be flexible?2020-10-15T11:20:21-04:00

No, not at all. Yoga is a great way to become more flexible. Studies show that increasing your flexibility can help improve your range of motion, improve athletic performance, and assist in preventing injuries.

Do I have to wear yoga pants?2020-10-15T11:12:52-04:00

Wear whatever you feel the most comfortable in! That could be leggings, sweatpants, jeans… It doesn’t matter as long as you have a full range of movement.

Is Yoga just stretching?2020-10-15T04:01:21-04:00

While yoga does incorporate some stretching, it is also excellent at building strength. However, the physical postures are only one aspect of yoga. Yoga connects movements of the body, the breath, and quieting the mind.

Is Yoga a Religion?2020-10-15T03:56:39-04:00

Yoga is not a religion, it’s a philosophy. Yoga sometimes includes other philosophies as well originating from Hinduism or Buddhism, but you don’t have to subscribe to any one belief system to practice Yoga.
