530I began practicing yoga in March of 2002. I initially started practicing because of an ankle injury that led to some severe back problems. My friends kept telling me yoga would heal what ails me. I loved yoga after my first practice. Having been an athlete all my life, I loved the physical aspect of yoga. Over time both my back and my ankle healed and I began to feel my body and my heart open to the practice. At this point I began to feel that there was more to this practice than just the physical aspect.   I began to see and feel the spirituality of the practice. I felt like I had found what I didn’t even know I was looking for.  I began to understand that yoga is a lifelong process. Each practice opens me to the idea that there is always more to know. That growth is a constant in this practice, whether physically, mentally, or spiritually, as long as I am open to it. This aspect of yoga excites and challenges me. I hope as a teacher to be able to pass on the same joy and peace I have found in my practice. I have been fortunate enough to be able to practice with such incredible teachers as: Manju Jois, Tim Miller, David Swenson, David Williams, Lino Miele, Paul Dallaghan, Kino Macgregor, Tim Feldmann, and David Garrigues
