What year did you first start practicing yoga?
I first started seriously practicing in 2016, after the birth of my second daughter.

Was there any particular reason you started practicing yoga?
I suppose I didn’t realize what it was at first, but now I realize I was craving focus and strength.  I desperately needed an outlet where I literally couldn’t do anything but be present—I found that in my vinyasa practice.  It was (and still is!) so addicting!  I also found it in Inferno Hot Pilates classes.  You are so in the moment (20 seconds at a time!) and barely hanging on—talk about pushing your strength (both mental and physical) to the limit!

Favorite posture and why?
I love flowing from Extended Side Angle to Bird of Paradise. I also love arm balances!

Why do you currently practice this yoga?
Because it makes me feel amazing! :)

What do you love about teaching yoga?
I was pleasantly surprised stepping to the other side of the Inferno Hot Pilates podium.  Teaching has taught me more about my own goals, practice and motivation than I could have ever dreamed.  Watching students getting stronger and more confident in themselves and their true strength is one of the most motivating things I have ever experienced.

Two things most people don’t know about you?
I lived in Los Angeles, CA for 11 years, working in the entertainment, music and technology fields.
I am the most Alabama person ever. I had my second baby in the car—on the side of Interstate 10!
