I am grateful to have discovered yoga and begin my practice at the perfect time in this journey we call life. As I was training for the 2015 Veterans World Championship for women's freestyle wrestling, I attended a Bikram hot yoga class. The class was very challenging, but what spoke to my mind, body, and soul was the connection of breath I found to my movement and heartbeat. Since experiencing this peaceful bliss, I dove into my yoga practice and have transformed and evolved to how I now live my daily life. I have been teaching high school physics and chemistry for 17 years, and now am taking my experience in the classroom to the yoga mat. My passion in life and dharma (work) is to lift others up to their highest potential. Namaste.
