I began practicing yoga several years ago. After taking my very first class, I knew I would develop a lifelong relationship with yoga. In winter of 2015 I had overwhelming clarity that I wanted to become a yoga teacher. That very same day, I enrolled in the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at my second home, Longwave Yoga. I have been so fortunate to learn from Lexi Hawks and Mary Glackmeyer, and recently completed an 8-week apprenticeship under the guidance of Mary Glackmeyer, where I studied the Jivamukti 14 Points, the Yoga Sutra, advanced assists, and much more. Being on my mat is where I feel the bravest and most self-accepting. My classes incorporate open-level asana, pranayama, and meditation. My hope is that all beings find clear self-awareness, stillness, and acceptance both on and off the mat, and like me, cultivate a lasting relationship to their yoga practice.
