I hoped training would be different than other yoga trainings available…and it has been. I’m experiencing great new relationships with the people in my class, a new closeness with God, great ideas for to use in class, and expanded use of anatomy and a greater sense of purpose in my yoga practice and instruction (as a teacher). I’ve learned that all people have messy lives and we unite through our commonalities and differences under the guidance of God. When you trust others with your mess and know that they will support you and not judge you it makes for a much richer learning experience.
“I expected my 4:8 teacher training experience to facilitate 200 hours of yoga training, but did not expect to be so genuinely immersed into a community of diverse individuals who will undoubtedly become lifelong friends.”
I go home after training feeling emotionally exhausted from the realness and rawness – and all in a good way…the way you feel after a pint of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and a good cry with your best friend. I have a support group that I’ve never had before. I can’t imagine going through this without them. I am so grateful for the safe space we’ve created together to get through the mess so that we can become the best instructors possible. I am being a total cheese ball with all the feels, but it is SO true. There is no way I would ever get through this without the trainee tribe.

Lead Instructor - E-RYT 250-hr from Yahweh Yoga<br /> Additional certifications in Yin I, Yin II, and Restorative<br />
Yoga turned a humble rubber mat into a place I could call home. A sacred place that allows me to come home to myself, God, and my practice; regardless of what life throws at me. The first time I stepped on a mat almost 14 years ago, I was hooked. As a Christian practicing in secular studios I would often drown out the teacher and go into prayer. I loved the breath with movement and how it left me feeling so alive. Four years later I received my 250-RYT teacher certification through Yahweh Yoga and it completely revolutionized my yoga practice. I had finally found the yoga Jesus bridge. My practice has allowed me to find stillness when life is raging, keeps me playful, reminds me to be gentle with myself and accept myself as I am today. But more importantly, allows me to connect with my Creator on a deeper level than I had ever experienced before. When I’m not on my mat, I’m either in school or ubering my three girls around. I enjoy traveling the world with my family, hiking, coffee, gardening, and doing weird hippy stuff.

“I have done yoga for almost half of my life, six of those years as a teacher. As I began my yoga journey it was the physical aspect of yoga as well as mental that attracted me. I had no idea that my yoga practice would take me to such a deep personal relationship with God. It improved my focus, ability to hold prayer and space. As I continue along my journey and deepen my faith I’m happy to share what I have learned and where I have come from. I feel I can truly relate to people on all yoga levels, as I have been on them. My style of yoga is Vinyasa Flow and I enjoy the creative freedom that I bring to my practice. I love to sprinkle in some fun. The freedom to express my faith through yoga is something that I cherish about this studio.”
