1. When/ how did you discover yoga?

I have practiced yoga in the “light” way for while, but it was not until I moved to Tampa almost 5 years go when I truly discovered yoga. I just recently had a baby and needed some kind of exercise. Little did I know how much my life was going to be altered by this yoga thing!

2. What do you love about teaching yoga?

It gives me freedom. It’s like a therapy. It’s an opportunity to share something really important. While your body is doing some work, your mind is doing even more. And your heart and soul benefit the most.

Sharing yoga is one of the most important things I have done.

3. How has yoga and meditation changed your life?

I can’t even begin to explain. But I think the single most important way to describe it is awareness.

Awareness of the mind. When you become aware things change. In a very BIG WAY.

4. Why do you teach at Bella Prana?

When I first moved to Tampa, I was very isolated. It was not until I found the Bella Prana community that made things better.  My previous peers are now my students. It’s the amazing people that make Bella Prana a special place.

Bella Prana is my yoga home. That’s where I truly connected with my yoga practice as a student and that’s where I became a teacher. I am sure one day I will have to move on but it will always be my very special place.
