I practiced Hatha yoga in college, but had been away from the mat for years, concentrating on swimming and other forms of exercise, when Blue Sky opened in Monroe. I took advantage of the two week new student special and absolutely fell in love with power yoga, not only for the strength and flexibility it has given me, but also for the peace and tranquility the practice brings to all aspects of my daily life. I felt called to share what I have found, and started my 200 hour certification in September of 2013. I love the practice and I love teaching and sharing the practice with others. I've been married to my wonderful husband and best friend Tom for almost 37 years. We have four grown children and three grandchildren with the fourth one on the way!
Yoga has been such an amazing blessing in my life. I love the practice, the lifestyle and most importantly, I love teaching. Teaching yoga is my honor and privilege. I enjoy practicing different styles of yoga including Power, Restorative, Yin, Nidra, Bikram and Kundalini. When I am not working or on the mat, I have fun playing with my dog Hippie, cooking, making art, watching movies, visiting with friends and family, and dancing. I am originally from Gualadajara, Mexico but Northeast Louisiana is now my home . My 200 HR Yoga Teacher Certification is from Pactice.Teach.Live from Purple Lotus Yoga. Namaste.
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.
