Yoga Instructor - Reiki Master
" I share my story in hopes that it will give others strength and inspiration...
I found yoga (or I should say yoga found me) in 2010, after chronic spinal/neck injuries. I often experienced back pain throughout schooling and into adulthood. Once I took my first heated Power Vinyasa Yoga class, I was hooked! Previously, the chiropractor visits were necessary and many, then after establishing a regular yoga practice, I said good-bye to my Chiropractor forever. I completed my 200-hour certification for Ashtanga-based Vinyasa in 2011 and my 500-hour certification for Hatha Yoga in 2013.
My corporate position moved out-of-state, and I was fortunate enough fall into Yoga Studio Management. I met my charismatic (future) husband while doing yoga. We got married, opened a yoga studio of our own (Yoga Aura), and had a beautiful baby girl all within a year of each other. It was challenging beyond belief, but we kept looking forward. Not too long afterwards, my hard-working husband had a sudden heart attack and he was gone from this Earth-plane. I continued on my own as owner and operator of the Yoga Aura for more than 4 years. In the spring of 2020, it was time to close the studio and since then I have continued to offer Private Yoga Instruction & Meditation, and Reiki (energy-balancing) sessions.
I have personally worked through grief, depression, single mom-hood, sole proprietorship of a successful business and the adventures that come with all of it. With the healing tools of Yoga, Meditation and Reiki, I can confidently claim the work paid off. I cannot say enough about the practices that have pulled out of the darkest of places. I am blessed and honored to serve with this beautiful combination of healing methodology to foster health and happiness."
