Namaste Austin! I received my 200 hour RYT certification back in early 2013 in North Carolina and then continued my training here in Austin by earning my 500 hour RYT certification with Del Sol Yoga!
Yoga has changed the way I live off the mat, and my hope is to hold a loving space for you to experience the transformation that the practice can offer! Yoga means union. To unify the mind, body, and spirit. "Yoga is our true nature, the practice just shows us what we are resisting." -Sharon Gannon, Jivamukti Yoga.
I have found my authentic voice through teaching a powerful, vinyasa flow. When we brush up against our edge and step outside of our comfort zone is truly where growth can occur. If you practice anything, you eventually become good at whatever you keep practicing. That IS the yoga practice! Training or yoking the mind. Before reacting when the flow gets challenging, we return to the breath. As so, in life. The postures bring us back to the present moment, through every single breath, every moment. "Yoga is a radical form of meditation" -Claudia Castro-Leverett. Through this powerful, yet reflective flow class, your mind can take a break from all of the chatter and provide an access way into the heart.
I:II Yogas citta vrtti nirodhah-Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind.
See you on the mat!
