My yoga practice began about 6 years ago when I took a yoga class and instantly something inside me clicked. Following an impactful yoga retreat, I decided to take my practice deeper and enroll in a 200-hour yoga teacher training for Vinyasa style yoga in Boston. The more I learned, the more there was left to discover. I extended my training to focus more on sequencing and theming classes to provide an intentional space for other practitioners to grow and be supported. Although I was hired at a studio in Boston to begin teaching in March of 2020, the onset of the pandemic stopped this from happening. At this time, I continued to teach yoga in any capacity that I could. I was able to start my in-studio teaching journey when I moved to the DMV in July of 2021.
Since becoming a yoga practitioner, I set my purpose on cultivating my own light from within and guiding others to connect with their inner light. In early 2022, I was struggling personally when a friend offered to take me to a free class at Ballston CrossFit. By the end of the class, I had realized that the coaching, the programming, and the community at BCF were grounds for growth, support, and grounding that I had unknowingly been craving. I left that class sold on BCF and with my inner light shining as brightly as ever. Months later, as my overall fitness continued to make strides and looking to deepen my roots in the community, I joined the team as a yoga teacher. Since then, I have been endlessly grateful for the light that Ballston CrossFit has provided me in both my capacities as a yoga teacher and as a member. CrossFit has made me stronger than I knew was possible and has shown me that with time and hard work there is no limit to what is achievable.
When I am not doing yoga or attending WODs I enjoy hiking, spending time with friends and family, and obsessing over any dog.
