My Journey with Yoga One and Baptiste Yoga
I attended my first yoga class in 2004 with my Mom. At first I was drawn to yoga because I was looking for an alternative to dreaded gym visits. I have always enjoyed athletics and making time for exercise, but when it started to feel like a chore I wanted a change.
Quickly I found yoga to be more than just a physical workout -- and I was hooked. In 2008 I landed at my “yoga home”, Yoga One, after moving to Charlotte. I’ve continued to grow my personal dedication to the practice since then, and decided to begin my professional training path with Yoga One in December 2013. I left my corporate job to become a full-time mommy and yoga instructor.
Off my mat, Penelope and Mila create a fun, fast-paced and entertaining joy-filled life for my best friend/lifelong teammate/husband, Mike, and me.
In addition to power flow classes, I regularly teach and participate in Prenatal and Mommy and Mini classes at Yoga One and Baby & Co, and lead Prenatal workshops.
