I maintain a 200 RYT Master Instructor certification from Greg Turner of Yoga Steps® (Yoga Alliance approved). In addition, I hold ACE certifications in Personal Training, Group Exercise Instructor, Fitness, Certification for Fitness Nutrition, and Barre Intensity®. I received my aerial yoga certification from AerialYogaRx. I have been practicing and teaching yoga and group fitness for over 8 years. I incorporated personal training over 2 years ago and have been adding the additional certifications since then. I am originally from Miami, FL. I lived a briefly in Bath, NH and then Birmingham, AL. It was in Alabama that I rediscovered my love for yoga. When I began my certification it was the intention of learning what was transpiring within myself as I moved through my practice. The teaching part just sort of happened. In addition to teaching at the YMCA, and providing one-on-one lessons, I was a volunteer yoga instructor for a special group of women with invasive breast cancer through Susan G. Komen. It was so uplifting for me because no matter what they were enduring they still found something positive. They always found some reason to move forward. These women will always be an example for me to put my best foot forward and show up.
