E-RYT 500, RCYT, CERTIFIED GROUNDED KIDS TEACHER & TRAINER, CREATOR OF PRE-GROUNDED
I have been practicing yoga for over twenty five years and took my very first 200 Yoga Teacher Training in 1999 at Peachtree Yoga Center and have been teaching since.
Here is a little secret; during my 200 hour YTT in Hatha Yoga I fell in love with Kundalini Yoga which lead me to take the Kundalini Yoga Teacher certification under the guidance of beloved teacher Mukta Kaur Khalsa. I am a member of Yoga Alliance and the Kundalini Yoga Teachers Association (IKYTA).
My personal yoga style is an integration of the various types of yoga that I have studied and practiced with many teachers through out the years. I strongly believe that yoga is a way of life that brings peace of mind, physical strength, health, vitality, and enhanced spirituality. My classes reflect my dedication of maintaining the sacred integrity of yoga and my heart felt commitment to enjoying the practice on and off the mat.
The most fun I had during any of my many yoga teacher trainings was during the Laughter Yoga Teacher Training that certified me to be a Laughter Yoga Leader to facilitate classes and workshops.
I was right there during the birth of Grounded Kids and every step of the way after. That enabled me to work even harder than anybody to earn my Grounded Yoga Teacher & Trainer Certification. I am the creator of Pre-Grounded (ages 3-6) which qualifies me to teach yoga to Preschool, Elementary, Middle and High School aged kids.
Years worth of experience and knowledge allows me to shine when I teach the Special Needs Populations. I give 100%, nothing less, each and every time. I connect on such a deep level with children and young adults with special needs and it shows during my teachings.
I teach many styles of adult yoga classes including Hatha Yoga Basics, All Levels Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Yin Yoga and Meditation. I also teach children, Pre-Grounded and Grounded Kids classes, at many Montessori, public and private schools around Atlanta. I lead many workshops for the public and YTTs, and teach trainings and special events throughout Atlanta and the USA.
I have two amazing adult children who inspire and motivate me everyday. I can still embarrass them when I do yoga poses in public, but I know they are proud of me and support everything I do.
I share my life with my long time partner who is the founder of Grounded Kids. She still pushes my buttons everyday and expects nothing but excellence from me.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE WHAT I DO! And I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR IT.
