LifePower’s Yoga Stack and Flow On Your Own

Free

I found Yoga just a few of years ago while I was working at Life Time Athletic in Bergen County as a Pilates Instructor. Between teaching Reformer/Chair classes, I would hop into one of the Yoga classes offered at Life Time. Having only been on a yoga mat a handful of times, I was completely changed after my first LifePower Yoga class. There was something special going on everyday inside of that yoga room and I wanted to be a part of it. I decided to enroll in Lifepower Yoga Teacher Training when it was first offered at Life Time, in 2013. I had no idea what a life changing experience it would be. I realized by my second day in that I would make this my life and that I would to bring the spirituality of the practice as well as the challenging physical aspects to as many people as possible. I am lucky enough to be teaching Flow (vinyasa), Root (yoga foundations) & Surrender (yin) classes within the LifePower Yoga community as well as co-facilitating 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Trainings. Every yoga class is an opportunity to change someone’s life. To enrich, to make connections and to encourage people to be accepting of themselves. Every day that I get to practice, I learn from my teachers and every time I teach I want to deliver the best possible experience to my students. I look forward to seeing them every day. Nothing satisfies me more than when one of my students takes the time to email, text or just give me a big sweaty hug after class. I feel completely fulfilled. My cup is overflowing with gratitude and love. I am exactly where I’m supposed to be.

My love of yoga began in my late teens. It developed into a deep passion and I could no longer hold the physical and mental healing powers I experienced to myself. I immersed myself, heart first, into yoga teacher training and I haven’t looked back.
