I haven’t always had such a strong passion for yoga. I played soccer for 16 years, and developed a sense of constant competitiveness in my life, and always strived to be “the best.” However, having someone better than me at soccer and not getting to play because of it made me very unhappy. In 2016, I completed my first teacher training, and during that time I realized I don’t need to worry about being better than anyone else in yoga! Only after that have I become more accepting of myself and my abilities, and have been so much happier because of it! I strive to teach students that same acceptance.
