“Karma” introduced me to yoga or perhaps it was yoga to me.  While sitting at a café in 2012 with my wife at the gym, we were talking about ways to help reduce my stress brought on by the daily demands of the corporate world.  Literally, as I glanced over my shoulder I saw a sign advertising a yoga basics class starting later in the week.  I signed up immediately and never looked back as I found my life changing into something bigger and deeper than I had known. I went on to deepen my practice thru reading and by attending workshops and regular classes.  Looking for even more and a way to spread my knowledge to others, I became certified to teach in 2016 by graduating from 200-hour teacher training and immediately was hired as a teacher. I furthered my teacher training later in 2016 and received my Chair Yoga and Gentle Yoga Certifications. I have been teaching to all age groups, but have a special focus on the 50+ community where I have the honor of meeting so many new friends as I share my passion of yoga with them. My journey continues with my personal belief that “we get to ourselves thru ourselves”.
