Power Vinyasa Flow: Great for new and experienced students to grow their practice with this dynamic class that focuses on a flow of breath, strength and balanced movement that emphasizes gentleness.
My yoga practice began in 2002. After taking classes on and off for a few years, I attended a weekend workshop in 2006 at Amazing Yoga in Pittsburg. This was when I discovered Baptiste Hot Power Vinyasa and knew I was on the right path for me. I completed my Level One Journey into Power Teacher Training with Baron Baptiste in 2007 and began teaching yoga shortly thereafter. After taking some time off, I completed my Level Two Teacher Training with Amazing Yoga and began teaching at BlissBlissBliss in 2013. Since then,
I’ve been to several continuing education workshops including one with Brian Kest who is recognized as the creator of Power Yoga. Over the years I have learned that Power Yoga is powerful in many ways and that power comes from the mind. I have a MEd in Wellness Management and a PhD in Human and Community Development. Through my various jobs, courses and yoga training, I have learned how to facilitate adult learning. I truly believe this is how yoga teaching works; helping people help themselves because our real teacher is within each of us.
I have taught spinning and pilates and enjoy mountain and road biking, hiking, cross country and downhill skiing. I simply enjoy the outdoors where I get a sense of freedom and serenity. I love spending time with my husband and yellow lab who remind me of yoga principles every day.
