Dance and gymnastics classes at the age of four helped my mom deal with my affinity for balancing on ledges and being upside down. Gymnastics soon became a passion lasting into college, as it helped me become more aware of her body, it’s position in space and the effects of movement on her mood and spirit. A snowboarding accident led me to a physical therapist who suggested yoga to help heal my injury. I immediately connected to the flow of movements because of her gymnastics background. However, the calm peace created by the mindfulness of breath is what truly resonated with me. I soon developed a passion and practice for the yogic way of life which lead me to teacher training at Studio Surya Yoga in Venice,CA to earn my certification in Vinyasa based yoga in July 2013. Recently, I was able to combine my love of gymnastic acrobatics with yoga and obtained my ACROVINYASA™ Level 1 Teacher Certification created by Claudine and Honza Lafond in August 2015. This practice takes yoga from earth to air, uniting elements of vinyasa, acroyoga and inversion training. Inspired by traditional yoga asanas and L-based acrobatic flying, this progressive yoga system includes both solo and partner practice. The intent is to build meaningful human connection within a global community. Learning to trust, clearly communicate and give & receive are some of the deeper benefits. In short, ACROVINYASA™ offers a dynamic expansion beyond your solo practice. I love to fly, and slowly getting better at basing;) My schedule to play is limited since I'm still working as a Nurse is the Operating Room full time, and teaching Yoga/Acro on the side. Most Sunday's you will find me on the green, reach out to me if you want to play!!!
