Tell us a little about yourself.
After utilizing Mindfulness techniques to reduce anxiety I fell in love with Yoga which was a physical way for me to incorporate Mindfulness. I completed my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in April and in December I’ll be traveling to New York City for intensive 3-day Buti Yoga Certification. I’m collaborating with a handful of local movement instructors to create workshops offering various methods to address stress, anxiety, and personal development.
