Yoga and it's principles have become a very important nurturing part of my life. I was given the opportunity in 2010 to practice vigorously and found that the ideals that yoga offered were what I had been missing and the methods of the practice were very useful in my day to day life. The first Power Yoga class I participated in was in Boston at a Baptiste studio in Cambridge. I felt an instant connection to the flow of the style and the challenges it presented to me.
Upon completing a series of studies in early 2011 with Philly Power Yoga's Steve Gold, I began to guide Vinyasa practices. I'm determined to continue my personal investigation of yoga and am happy to continue spreading the news about the healing benefits and transformations Yoga can provide.
