MY JOURNEY

At a young age, I was blessed to learn meditation from my amazing mother, an avid meditator, by practicing and accompanying her to meditation meetups. It was only much later during my yogic studies I would learn that children naturally meditate until about age eight. After age eight children's brain waves change from a predominately alpha-brain wave state (meditative state) to mostly beta (mentally active state). So it was only fitting that during adolescence I strayed from my meditation practice. My first yoga class was in my freshman year of college. I went in full ego thinking I was flexible and it would be easy. I got a rude awakening. I laid there in savasana (corpse pose) the final pose, relieved the class was over. Then suddenly with my eyes closed in total surrender, my mind cleared. It was at that moment I remembered all my previous teachings about meditation. That class fueled my desire to learn more about the practice of yoga and go back to my meditative roots. It has been almost 20 years of commitment to this journey and learning all I can about health and wellness. Along the way, I found a great mentor who introduced me to personal training and motivated me to not only become a personal trainer myself but also compete in my first NPC bikini competition, a goal I almost thought I would never achieve. I learned to bring the presence of yoga in all moments in life and I feel extremely blessed to be on this journey and to share my knowledge with others.
