Why did you decide to become a yoga teacher?
I was encouraged by my yoga teachers to attend teacher training as a way to deepen my own practice—even if I decided I didn’t want to teach. Once I began teacher training, I discovered a new love of yoga through teaching!
What do you like best about teaching?
There are so many things I love about teaching, but I would say my absolute favorite thing is when I help a student find something new in a posture or where I can communicate something in a way that a lightbulb goes off for them! I love those moments!
