I started practicing yoga in 2011 in Ashland, OR and immediately after the first class I knew that this was something my body desperately needed. Even though I struggled greatly in the beginning I knew that the promise of this yoga was real for me. My first teachers were extremely helpful and inspiring and I feel privileged to be able to give back as a teacher in the same way I was given to in my first years as a student. I went to Original Hot Yoga teacher training in Austin, TX at Pure Yoga in July 2022 with Jeff and Mardy Chen, who were amazing as well as their whole team. I’m very grateful to be able to step into teaching at my home studio here in Bend with a strong community of dedicated practitioners with whom I have been a part of since 2018.
