My personal yoga journey began in January 2013, just a few months after I made the move from Tulsa, Oklahoma to Dallas for my job with Dallas ISD. I found Gaia Flow Yoga on a Groupon and immediately fell in in love because of the motivating & friendly instructors, the non-judgmental environment, and good-hearted people (cliché, I know). When I moved to Dallas, I knew one person. Fast forward to 2015 and one of my bridesmaids is a fellow Gaia Flow Yogi. I’m telling y’all, it’s that sort of family, love based community.
Initially, I thought yoga would be a good workout routine for me because I already had flexibility from my days in competitive and college cheerleading. Yoga became so much more than a workout for me. I found that it challenged me in so many ways that I needed to be challenged. Every time after leaving Gaia, I felt at peace with whatever was going on in my life.
In September of 2017, I had a crazy idea. I decided that while being a full time graduate student & teaching Kindergarten full time, I would also start my journey to become a certified yoga teacher. I never thought that teaching yoga was in the cards for me, but it is one of the things that I am most proud of that I have accomplished.
I love teaching and can promise you that in my class I will challenge you to push yourself to your new edge, motivate you to try new things (even if you fall on your face), and be there to help you in any possible way I can.
If I’m not at Gaia Flow taking class, you can find me spending time with my husband and cat (Brian & Griffin), eating, cycling, walking around West Village, spending time with friends and family, or binge watching Law & Order SVU.
