I began taking Integral Yoga classes in Athens, Georgia, in 1998. In 2006, after I had moved to Knoxville, I decided that the time was right for me to answer my long-heard calling to teach yoga to others. I applied and was accepted to Stephanie's teacher training course in Asheville. For a while, I taught morning yoga classes at the Rush's Walker Springs and Farragut locations. I taught at Aravinda from its opening in February 2011 to its closing in May 2012.
I've been teaching at the Glowing Body since it opened in September 2008. I've also taught at Balanced You and the Cherokee Mills Fitness Center since July 2012.
I believe that yoga helps us become more aware of ourselves and the habits we get into that make us unwell. In the process of getting stronger, more flexible, more relaxed, and more balanced, we also become more able to let go of the things we don't need to cling to - stresses, tensions, emotions, thoughts. . . They're all wonderful things to have -- but the accumulation of them is burdensome. By letting go of the things we don't need, we discover ourselves more able to do what needs to be done, to be whom we need to be.
But let's start off by figuring out how to bend at our hips! Now, keep your spine long. . .
