I began teaching Bikram Yoga in 2002 and other styles of yoga since 2004. I became interested in health and healing while experiencing serious health issues my late teen’s and traditional medicine could not offer solutions. I began studying alternative healing practices and philosophies. Along that journey, I became a Certified Reiki Master, Kinesiologist, Iridologist, Spiritual Response Therapist, Rebirthing Facilitator, Nutritional Consultant, and Bikram Teacher. Also, I studied Ayurveda, Life Coaching, Oriental Medicine, many forms of energy healing, breath work, numerous philosophies, etc. I practiced hatha yoga for a number of years before beginning to practice Bikram yoga in 2001. The heat of the Bikram room helped me to open up my body to another level that promoted greater healing. And, began practicing other yoga styles in 2004 after experiencing phenomenal healing practicing Bikram. I found yoga in general helps me to be self-aware, connected to my breath and I choose to bring that into the practice room with my teaching.
