What schools (dance/fitness) have you attended?
The International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre
When did you first know you wanted to be a fitness instructor and how did you come to know it?
From ’97-2001 my mother introduced me to the healing aspects of Yoga and its science of health. I was young, naïve and my health had come to a depressed point from the stressors throughout the years. I took the advice that had been handed to me and began to develop a practice by attending my sisters yoga classes at UNM. Once I developed a basis for the discipline I realized it would not only benefit myself if I attended a teacher training program but I would also be able to share the valuable knowledge of health and happiness with those around me.
Who was the teacher who most inspired you when you were attending your training and what did you learn from that person?
I have meet many teachers or “gurus”. In fact every yoga class, healing workshop, or visual arts performance I have attended since finding my discipline has inspired me to stay focused and maintain a concentrated practice. Amazing feats of balance and mastery of the physical body always offer ecstatic thoughts.
