Yoga has been a part of my life for over 10 years initially as a way of dealing with my low back issues, only to realise it is so much more than just an exercise to strengthen the body. The more I practiced yoga, the more I discovered the magic of it. The complete transformation began with my first teacher training course that improved my life on so many levels and helped me develop my full potential I didn’t even know existed! I feel privileged to teach yoga and help people grow stronger, more flexible and fearless, both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires me to live and enjoy each moment of my life without worrying about the past or the future.
I completed my first 100 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Wendy Elliott and her SALT POWER YOGA team from Pittsburgh in January 2018. This life-changing training equipped me with the right tools to create powerful yoga sequences and encouraged/inspired me to start teaching volunteer yoga classes at my kids’ school (Memorial Elementary School) providing free yoga classes 2/week for parents, teachers and later for kids in afterschool. Soon after that, I started regularly teaching at the Trotter YMCA – my first family gym and the place where I took my very first yoga class!
In March 2019 I completed Teach. Lead. Inspire. 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Dan and Cristina Houston with Mind Tribes. This beautiful training helped me deepen my knowledge of anatomy, physiology, energetics and many other important aspects of yoga.
I am forever grateful to all my teachers who helped me discover my authenticity and positive transformation shaping my teaching in a unique and powerful way.
I continue broadening my knowledge by taking online classes/courses, reading and self-educating on various aspects of healthy and happy lifestyle and sharing my knowledge and experience while teaching at least 7 classes a week at various YMCA Greater Houston locations.
In my classes there are no levels, neither age nor flexibility limits – everyone is welcome from a curious beginner to an experienced yogi. Every yoga practice is unique and special to ensure each, and all will leave their yoga room feeling inspired, challenged and complete, feeling all parts of the body utilised, toned and massaged. I love to combine variety of creative and strong movements occasionally accompanied with beautiful music, words of encouragements and simple practical cues that empower students to step outside their comfort zone so they can have no other way but “let go” in Shavasana. I continuously seek to help people understand how they can dramatically improve their own health and find positivity, happiness and balance in their lives through yoga thus nurturing their minds, souls and bodies.
