Yoga changed every aspect of my life for the better; from balancing out my body's tight areas and strengthening the weak muscles to becoming more calm and being present. After practicing yoga as a student, I knew my passion was ignited to share the gift with others! I was already a group fitness instructor and personal trainer where I loved helping individuals. So, I set my mission to spread the love and feels of yoga to others.
