I am a dedicated student of all paths that bring me to balance, joy, and peace. Initially, my yoga practice served as a means to rehabilitate physical injuries sustained during my career in college athletics. Over time, yoga became a transformative path towards greater understanding, physical balance, internal strength, mental clarity and self-awareness. For the past three years, I have created and directed The Skillful Action Yoga Training I also lead dynamic workshops across the country. It has been my intention for a long time to open a community center in which anybody and everybody can find the practices of yoga. I have put my heart and sole into the opening of RISE Yoga and Movement Arts Center; it’s the culmination of my life’s work so far. I am beyond grateful to be able to share my vision with all of you. http://risemovementarts.com
