I first came to yoga in 2011, motivated to use it as a tool to gain strength and flexibility. As a runner and dancer I was constantly dealing with injuries. Through yoga I hoped to loosen my tight muscles and find a physical practice that would be good for my body with minimal risk of injury. I tried and enjoyed several different styles of yoga from various Fairbanks teachers. Then I was introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, which was both physically and mentally challenging. The Ashtanga Vinyasa system links breathing with posture, and uses the same sequence of postures to enable the movements to become instinctual so the mind can focus. In this manner your practice becomes a moving meditation. I quickly grew to appreciate the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of my Ashtanga Vinyasa practice and became a devoted practitioner. Since that time I have observed myself change to become a more focused, balanced, peaceful, and accepting person. This positive experience made me want to share the benefits of yoga with others, and motivated me to pursue my yoga teacher certification. I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training in October 2015 through combined programs by David Kyle (Ashtanga Yoga Puerto Rico), and Edwin and Catarina Lacayo (It’s Yoga Nicaragua), who teach Modified Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga following the philosophy and methods of Larry Shultz (a former student of Pattabhi Jois). I was attracted to Larry Shultz’s “It’s Yoga” teaching system, which is based off the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa system, but offers modified and creative routines to make Ashtanga Vinyasa accessible and challenging to practitioners with various skill levels, body limitations, time constraints, and motivations. As I teacher, I follow the It’s Yoga philosophy and strive to provide a positive and supportive studio environment, where beginners can feel welcome and advanced practitioners can feel challenged. Most importantly, I aim to share my love of Ashtanga Yoga with others and hope to inspire others to find their better selves on and off the mat.
