My earliest memories include me daydreaming, constantly, and imagining that I was connected to all living things. I always had an inner knowing that there was more to this life that what we could grasp with our hands. I spent many years feeling ashamed that I didn't have everything figured out with a plan like the rest of the world. I thought I was different, wrong, lazy, unmotivated and worthless. You see, we are raised to believe that everyone should fit into a perfect little box of what we think is the right way of living - and this my dear, is simply not true. I have learned to remember that we are all unique individuals, here on our own separate paths, living harmoniously with each other, to create a world of joy and beauty. I now honor who I am and hope to inspire others to do the same.
I have always strived to know myself at a deep level and began my journey of self discovery at a very young age. Mainly through observation, I began to understand the world in a different way than most. In my first year of college, I began to study Yoga and resonated deeply with the spiritual aspects of the practice. In 2015 I completed my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher training, and 2 years later in 2017, I completed my 300 Hour which gave me a total of a 500 Hour Certification. Since then, I have taken several extra curricular yoga courses to deepen my knowledge and practice. In 2022, I became certified as a Dharma and Spiritual Life Coach through The Dharma Coaching Institute. Other interests and studies include: Human Design, Gene Keys, Lead Field Instructor in Wilderness Therapy, Sound Healing, Plant Based nutrition and Holistic Well-Being, and the list goes on!
