Why I practice Baptiste Yoga
I started practicing yoga in college. My yoga class was the only place I found presence and connected with my body. I found Baptiste yoga when I first moved to San Francisco. I had this grand plan of doing the intro specials at all the yoga studios in SF. Baptiste Power Yoga San Francisco was the first one I came to, and I never went anywhere else. The community within this space is rare and powerful. This practice gives me the opportunity to continually drop out of my head and into my body. The Baptiste methodology challenges me to shift my vision on and off the matt and keeps me grounded all while supporting me with mentors and friends who see me and challenge me.
Why I teach Baptiste yoga
I teach Baptiste yoga because this practice has changed my life. Through my trainings and teaching I have learned how to take up space while speaking and being from a place of authenticity and vulnerability. Since I first started practicing yoga, my teachers have been inspirations, they have given me tools to expand my practice and create clarity in my life. My hope is to continue to build the Baptiste community and create a safe and challenging space for students to explore their physical and mental power.
My promise to you
My intention as a teacher is to create presence in the room and help my students be where their feet are. I will push students out of their comfort zone and help them discover their personal power. My promise to you is that I will show up as I am, every class.
