ABOUT ME

Hello

As someone who works full time in the tech industry, I can completely relate to how difficult it can be to take a moment to slow down.  Whether the source is work, family, or other "to dos" on our lists, many of us are just plain busy, and even have to formally fit down time into our schedules (a.k.a. “if it’s not in my calendar, it’s not happening” mode!).   When we’re so heavily scheduled, it becomes even more important to stay connected to ourselves and avoid getting “caught up in the busy.”  

 

Yoga 

For me, yoga is the best way to physically and mentally bring life back into balance; it helps me to get grounded by reconnecting me to my physical body and encouraging my thoughts to slow down.  As a certified yoga teacher (RYT 200), I aim to spread ways to manage stress and connect to the self in bright, fun vinyasa flows as well as slower, supportive, and restorative sequences to rest and release the tensions in the body and mind. Through the benefits of a well rounded practice, I believe yoga can provide the tools to clear the mind, refresh the body, and deal with whatever comes up in yoga class, work, and life.

In Practice

​I also believe strongly in finding ways to incorporate elements of yoga and wellness into day to day life as naturally and as much as possible.  As a certified Health Coach of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I put my own advice into practice every day;  having a full time job while deepening my own healthy habits and practices gives me a great perspective on how to realistically incorporate strategies for healthy living into a busy, on-the-go life.  I’ve also learned how important it is to recognize my own moments and scenarios where “living it” becomes more difficult.   Whether that's eating with intention (instead of suddenly realizing my avocado toast has disappeared from it's plate and ended up in my stomach while I typed an email), or paying attention to how dehydrated I feel after a flight, it's all connected to yoga; listening to how the body responds to certain foods or activities is also a practice.  Through my own journey and challenges with detachment, stress, injuries, and health, I've developed a deeper understanding of how to deal with a busy life and maintain my "on the mat" values while off the mat.    I've also been able to incorporate some of my mindfulness and yoga passions into team-well being pursuits in my office, and am grateful to be in an open minded workplace that allows me to share my passion for well being with my peers. I’m looking forward to sharing these passions with you, too!
