1.How long have you been practicing at DYP?
I have been practicing at DYP off and on since 2007. I commute to DYP from Marietta because I love this studio so much. I truly believe that there is no other studio in Atlanta that offers the expertise, professionalism, and love that DYP offers.
2. What attracted you to yoga / Pilates?
I love yoga because it allows you to get out of your head and requires you to focus on your breath and building your physical strength.
3. What has yoga taught you about yourself?
Yoga has helped me to love myself more and to be kinder to myself. It has also helped me realize that I am stronger than I thought I was, both mentally and physically.
4. Have you had to overcome obstacles or injuries with your practice?
Right before I started practicing again recently I was experiencing extreme pain due to TMJ issues. I am now pain free!
5. How has yoga affected your life in general?
Yoga brings me so much inner peace and this allows me to have a much more positive outlook on life in general.
6. What is your profession?
I am a special education teacher. I teach students with physical and health disabilities, ages K-2.
7. What do you do in your free time?
I love to walk my dog, Dana, on the hiking trails near my house. I also enjoy tutoring students with special needs.
