Tell us about yourself and your background! How did you become a yoga teacher?
I moved from NY to Austin to start my own health and wellness centered around nutrition, fitness, yoga, and meditation. After dabbling in the audit life, I realized that that wasn’t my passion and I decided to go into what my heart was calling for and it was to be in service to others. P90X introduced me to yoga, and after doing it a few more times, I fell in love with it and the philosophy and decided that I want to impart the knowledge that I learned to help people become healthier and happier.
How long have you been teaching yoga?
I have been teaching yoga for 5 years now! And 3 years at Whisper Valley.
What do you enjoy most about teaching?
What I enjoy most about teaching is just having students realize how easy and rewarding that taking care of ourselves can be. I know how hard it is for people to develop routine, so I try to always incorporate a pose or a saying that people can take home with them and implement.
Anything else about yourself you would like to share?
I transitioned from Nirvana GYM to The Art of Nirvana. The Art of Nirvana focuses on helping people develop habits to help them conquer stress and anxiety once and for all. I incorporate self-reflection, meditation, yoga, and exercise in the program. It is my true passion because it allows me to spread all the knowledge I’ve gained over the years to really help people learn and grow.
