What motivated you to become a trainer?
I was inspired to become a yoga teacher because of all the benefits I’ve experienced with a regular practice (mindfulness, strength, balance). I wanted to share those benefits with others.
How would you describe your training personality?
I am really patient and meet people where they are. Yoga shouldn’t be intimidating.
What advice do you have for people that are just getting into fitness?
Start slow and steady. And in yoga I encourage students to be in their own bodies and not worry about what other people are doing.
What’s your favorite workout and why?
My favorite yoga practice is the Ashtanga primary series.
What do you like to do for fun?
I read, ride my bike and hang out with my husband and cats.
