I believe yoga and mindfulness techniques can help all beings make healthier choices for their mind, body, and heart in all situations. I observed the many benefits of yoga and breathwork on my family and myself which inspired me to complete my RYT 200 through Mountain Yoga Sandy and my RCYT through Yoginos: Yoga for Youth to further implement mindful practices in the community. In addition, I am a certified elementary and secondary health teacher. I have also obtained a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a Concentration in Literacy Education. My love of educating children led me to teaching kindergarten in the wild west of Idaho and Nevada for seven years before moving to Utah in 2018 with my family. During this time, I incorporated breathing and yoga practices in a variety of environments including the classroom, a recreation center, yoga studio, and a before school program. These practices involved physical and mental techniques to build confidence, improve concentration, and spark creativity to students. I am extremely passionate about teaching yoga and mindfulness tools on and off the yoga mat, and continue to teach yoga classes throughout the community so everyone can have access to and incorporate them in their everyday lives.
