I am yoga teacher, a studio owner, and a teacher of teachers. In reality, I am very goofy. And I fall asleep laughing, a lot. Even at times of anger or sadness, I will be the one making a joke of it. Because of the grace that God has blessed me with, I love seeing joy express itself in others, and I love helping others realize the joy within themselves, mostly because I am full of it (read that however you wish). I am a middle child, and half of my family lives in New Zealand. I grew up singing in multiple choirs, and even had the opportunity to conduct them as well. Having the ability to give my voice to other teachers, and guide them through a practice that has granted many stability in their lives. For those living with chronic, physical, and/or spiritual pain, I want to do whatever I can, all that is possible, to give these people the things they need to be able to love themselves more, even when times are tough. My purpose in life is to help others and entertain folks who are needing more joy in their lives. In college, I was a critical art major, with an emphasis on Gestalt Theory. Gestalt is the Western European word for the "form of shape," where images and things should be viewed as a whole, not simply a collection of parts. Gestalt theories are applied to music, to objects, psychology, and Gestalt therapy was developed with an emphasis on a "here and now" relationship with others in the world. Thus is the study of yoga.
