A bit about me...
I'm passionate about helping people live their best life and sharing with others how yoga has transformed my life. I am proof that yoga can be life-changing in incredible ways. It empowers me to keep doing the things that I love to do while managing orthopedic issues and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I love to be outdoors, hiking, backpacking, kayaking, and snow-shoeing - Practicing yoga is what allows me to continue doing those things.
I’ve had chronic knee pain since I was 16, and multiple orthopedic surgeries on feet, knees, and shoulders. I also have a lumbar spine defect that will eventually require a surgical fusion of my low back. I manage my chronic back pain with daily yoga. There are some yoga poses that my knees, shoulders, and low back don't like to do -- AND THAT'S OK -- yoga has taught me how to safely move and strengthen my body without compromising my joints.
