I became a yoga instructor and health coach simply to share the powerful transformation I experienced and the overall gift of health and well-being with others.
I started practicing yoga after graduating from college in 2008. After many years of playing competitive tennis, running and overworking my body, I found myself emotionally, mentally and physically exhausted. Seeking something more spiritual and peaceful, I began exploring various yoga classes. It didn’t take long for me to realize there is much more to yoga than physical postures. I discovered that yoga is not only a challenging, full-body experience, but it is also an instrument to connect to oneself on a deeper level by calming the mind and instilling a sense of balance and wholeness within the body. Wanting to deepen my practice and learn more about the roots of yoga, I completed my 200-hour teacher training in 2013.
I always thought I was healthy because I was an athlete and yogi and looked healthy on the outside. After undergoing two salpingo-oophorectomies and being diagnosed with hypothyroidism soon after, I started looking for answers around what was happening and why. After working with a nutritionist, eliminating foods that were harmful to my body, and developing more mindfulness around the whole food system, chronic ailments from which I suffered started to vanish. The brain fog, eczema and chronic digestive issues all disappeared. I became more and more curious about food’s ability to either heal or hurt our bodies, so I enrolled with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and became a certified health coach.
