Yoga was the light I needed when I was in a dark place. After a string of health problems, my doctors found that my yoga practice was helping by correcting my heart’s rhythm through deep breathing and de-stressing. Today, I try to take my yoga off the mat and into other aspects of my life by slowing down and taking a few deep breaths. The result is a more calm, kind, patient me.

My yoga practice taught me to slow down and start listening to my instincts. Those instincts lead me to a rewarding career here at Yogatown. Every day I get to work with an incredible group of people who inspire others to live their best lives. It’s truly a gift to witness how our clients transform and I’m humbled to be a part of their journey.

Whenever I’m down, I think of my mantra: “I am light”. It serves as my reminder to approach life with a sunny disposition and bring a little brightness to everyone I meet.
