In June 2011 I completed my Level 1 Baron Baptiste Power Yoga Training and completed Level 2 in 2012. In 2013 I attended a weekend TAP program for Assisting and earned a certificate in teaching kids yoga. In 2014 I completed Baptiste’s Art of Assisting program.
In 2015 Lululemon Athletica named me their Alderwood Ambassador. This is a huge honor for me as it allows me to get more involved in my community and touch more lives through the practice and discipline of yoga!
In July 2015 I became a 200 hour Certified Baptiste Yoga Instructor.
Outside the hot room I'm an accountant and a mother of two beautiful children. What a gift to be able to practice yoga with my husband and children. What a life! Namaste~
