I don't remember exactly when I started practicing yoga. I started at home with video tapes (yes, it was that long ago!). Then I took my first heated power class at a Baptiste studio in Boston & I was hooked. I started teaching by accident. The opportunity presented itself & I jumped on it. I started teaching without any formal training (that came later). I was scared & nervous when I started, but I loved it so much I didn't let that stop me. I am the founder & owner of Sanctuary Power Yoga - I have 2 heated power yoga studios in Northwest Connecticut. I teach at both studios regularly because I love sharing what I know about this practice - what I've learned about myself through it on my mat. And what I've learned to take off my mat. I teach what I love - a strong, flowing, physical practice. But I always include those pieces of the practice that sometimes get overlooked...the pieces that I use every day, off my mat, to help me navigate my life with ease & grace. When I'm not on my mat or in my studio, I'm with my family playing outside or building with legos. I hope you enjoy my class - I look forward to meeting you on your mat!
