I found yoga 10 years ago, I had just relocated back to the area, and temporarily moved back in with my parents... but was quickly losing my mind. While I was more into Pilates back then, I was slowly branching out into yoga through a few DVDs (Bryan Kest!) here and there, and needed to get out of the house so badly that when I saw a very pretty ad for Prana Yoga in the Weekender, just a few blocks away, I jumped at the chance to try it in a class setting. I was immediately hooked and yoga became my saving and a passion from that Tuesday night forward.
Outside of yoga I have a 9-5 and, when not teaching, I fill as much of the rest of my time as possible getting covered in bruises by various fitness endeavors. And sleeping. And bingeing on prestige TV.
Fun fact .... Even though i haven't practiced in a few years, my first love has and will always be horses. Since I was a little girl, I've been obsessed with horseback-riding, and trained in show jumping as a teen and then young adult. I also spent several summers throughout college taking care of a stable of twelve horses and teaching Girls Scouts how to be equestrians as the Riding Director at Camp Archbald.
And... “The Last Unicorn," by Peter S. Beagle, is one of my favorite books of all time. Reiki and is an ordained minister with the Lightwing Center.
