What inspires you the most?
I draw my inspiration from nature and the environment around me. I love to be around lots of color, texture, warmth, and energy. I love water and the flow it brings. My home is my sanctuary, nestled in lots of nature, beside a river. I would actually never leave my home because it brings me so much joy.

What has yoga done for you?
Yoga has allowed for me to meet and know myself. Yoga is the one thing in my life I can’t bullshit. It has made me appreciate my body, clear my head and allow for small stuff not to get me so bogged down. I am so grateful for all the friendships I have made through the practice and all the places I have gotten to go because of yoga. Now I am a teacher. I hope to share all these gifts with others to help fill them up.
