I found my way to the mat during a time in my life when I needed both a community and a space for personal reflection. I found both practicing with the ESY family, and EnSoul has become a place I call home. I know that whatever I bring with me to the mat each day is enough. Showing up for myself is enough, and the rest is icing on the cake! The physical freedom and creativity that can be experienced through a yoga practice is amazing, but I love the mental challenge even more. Yoga truly is more than a physical practice, and that’s why this community resonates with me. We are all people trying to rise up to higher values of living, and we are stronger when we do it together!

We definitely grow the most when we get out of our comfort zones, so I decided to take the leap and went to Life & Teacher Training with Eric and Caren Paskel in 2017...and loved it so much I returned the next year! I am so honored to be given the opportunity to hold a space for students to be authentic with themselves. I promise to also be REAL and share my experiences and some laughs along the way. I look forward to sharing a practice with you!
