About Enlightened Yoga
My sessions tend to focus on balancing breath with movement and clarifying alignment. I cultivate a space for students to develop strength, clarify intention, and connect deeply to the energy centers (chakras) within the body. My personal belief is that this helps the body to cleanse physically and spiritually and allows students the chance to release emotional trauma and negative energy long held within the body so that they can proceed down their path to authenticity.

How we were trained
I began practicing Yoga in 2010 when I set out on a quest for deep self-awareness and knowledge. I spent the majority of my life feeling and thinking so negatively about myself that I often felt very lost. As I began to practice Yoga, I began to realize how much emotion and trauma I held inside my body over the years, and how much of it I acted upon without realization. I struggled for years on what my divine purpose was and often did not know where to search or look for all the answers. As I healed and searched for answers my path became very clear, I am supposed to help people discover their path, heal from the past, and grow. From then on, I just knew that there was no better way to help people than through Yoga. In 2014, I courageously left my stagnant life in the corporate setting to travel to Bali, Indonesia to obtain my Yoga Teacher Certification. During my time in Bali with The Awakened Life School of Yoga, I cultivated deep self-awareness and clarity of intention and was awakened (how appropriate!) to a side of me that I never knew existed, a side without fear, insecurities or emotional pain. In addition to studying with The Awakened Life School of Yoga, I also had the opportunity to study under esteemed Yoga instructors Sarah Trelease (www.sarahtrelease.com), Margi Young (www.downtowndog.com), and Joe Miller (www.joemilleryoga.com).
Why we love what we do
I want to help your path and practice to grow and you to understand the tiny crevices of who you are and to openly accept and learn from anyone else's path.
Dive deeply in to the realm of self-awareness and allow yourself to enlighten, release and open the energy that resides deeply hidden within.
I want to work with you in the small space where an inhale and an exhale meet. In the area of clarifying intention with movement and alignment to discover your authentic, enlightened self so that you may live free of worry, fear or sadness.
