my personal yoga journey
For over 30 years, my guiding purpose has been to educate, inspire and encourage others towards a life full of good health and happiness – I am SO blessed!!
My journey with all things yoga began in the late ’90s when I found myself falling apart physically from “too much”. Too much running, jumping, pounding my body with western fitness. I was a personal trainer and loved my career but my body was in need of something different.
Mentally and emotionally I was feeling broken from an infertility 3 ring circus. A very personal journey with the practice and philosophy of yoga helped me arrive at peace with the fact that I was whole without a child. It taught me that I am blessed, not broken and I began to love myself again.
In 2000, I opened Fusion Yoga Studio in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and am incredibly blessed to serve a devoted community of faithful yogis. It’s an honor and a true blessing to share the journey with my students and I am devoted to continuously learning, sharing, and radiating knowledge for all to utilize and enjoy.
My students and stellar teachers have taught me so much and have inspired me to be a better teacher and person. In 2020, when the world flipped upside down, I closed my physical studio and embraced the unknown in order to birth a new chapter in my life. Providing a virtual landing place for like-minded, kindred spirits to gather and continue to walk the path of growth and evolution together.
I am excited… thrilled… overjoyed to be in creation mode again – it’s my happy place!
