I completed my yoga teaching certification through the Downtown Minneapolis Corepower Yoga studio in August 2011. I had gone into the program planning to learn to become a yoga instructor, but came out having learned more about myself than I would have thought possible. The instructors, the students, and the program led me down a path that taught me not only about the asanas, the standing postures, but also how to use the philosophy and lessons of yoga in my own life. This training also taught me how to take my practice off the mat, and share it with my friends and family and strangers alike in how I interact with everyone on a daily basis. I look forward to the opportunity to helping people get on their mats, challenge themselves, and to take it with them as they leave. As a teacher, I offer clear cues and modifications, and tailor my classes to student requests or skill level. I am an experienced registered yoga instructor with the Yoga Alliance.
