In 2002 took my first yoga class, and was hooked. The practice became an important life tool, that kept my body healthy and my mind clear. I felt so strongly about the benefits of this practice, had to share! Teaching began. A weekend workshop in 2005, then teacher training with Baron Baptiste in 2007 and 2009. Many other workshops followed with teachers such as, Seane Corn, Bryan Kest, Leslie Kaminoff, and Stacy Dockins. I opened Blue Sky Yoga in Monroe, May 2012, and opened a second studio in Ruston, December 2013. I teach power vinyasa flow, yin, and yoga for life (chair yoga). I live in Ruston, Louisiana with my 3 sons.
I started practicing yoga in 2010. I love fitness, living a healthy lifestyle, and being conscious of self…so adding yoga to the mix just fit! I decided to became an AFAA Group Exercise Instructor to start teaching yoga for the Spring semester 2011 at ULM. I was self-taught; engulfing myself in learning, sharing new poses, and flow variations that I would research. I decided to seal the deal and become a certified yoga instructor through Live Love Teach. I currently have my 200 hour RYI certification since April 2013. I love teaching Power yoga because of the physical and mental challenges the practice offers and how it can be applied to my daily life. I continue to enrich my life through yoga and plan to grow with my practice. Everyone’s potential is limitless and I hope to share that perspective with my fellow yogis!
I started practcing yoga in 2006 when I moved to Baton Rouge for college. I only looked at it as a form of exercise then, but now yoga means so much more to me.I grew up dancing (ballet, tap, and jazz), and yoga was a way for me to keep in shape after I had stopped dancing. Yoga is my release and my “me” time. I truly believe yoga is meant to be a life-long practice. I look forward to when I can practice, and I love sharing this practice with everyone I get to teach! I received my 200 RYT from Live Love Teach in April 2013. I have attended numerous conferences and workshops to further my yoga education. I also work full time at CenturyLink and coach the ULM Hawkline.
