She is also a trained Council Facilitator. She was drawn to create Somos Yoga because she wants everyone to feel safe to practice yoga in community.
WHY I TEACH:
Around 2008-2009, I was interested in yoga and very intimidated by it. I had a lot of uncertainties, I didn’t know what type of yoga class to take, the poses looked intimidating, I was afraid I would hurt myself and I had many questions.
In 2013 I started practicing yoga. My first class was a gentle yoga class and it was a great place for me to start. Yoga is one of my passions and yoga and it changed my life.
As a teacher it’s my goal to create a safe space for people of all body types to feel welcome and comfortable to practice yoga in community. When you are ready, I look forward to meeting you in a future class.
