I started teaching
fitness in 1998 after having my son with a strength training class
and a simple stretch class at my local YMCA. I had been reading
and self-teaching Yoga and began to incorporate Yoga moves into
my stretch class. I saw incredible transformations with my students
right away! My place of employment, like many people, had the misconception
that Yoga was a religion. Learning the knowledge behind Yoga taught
me that it is about the relationship you have with your self which
will affect your relationships with everything around you - whether
you choose a higher power or not. I watched your everyday person
experience physical, internal, even spiritual changes improving
the actual being inside and out. This had an incredible influence
on me immediately. I had found something so universal, for everyone
and anyone, I wanted to take it further and see where I could go
with this amazing ancient technique.
I was not able
to teach Yoga where I had been a fitness instructor and I felt that
I had something that I had to tell and show the world. This prompted
me to open up my own Yoga studio known as Sunshine Yoga and Fitness.
I can't explain the results that I get to personally see on a daily
basis. This practice is for all. It will allow you to come into
your wholeness which will in return allow you to have better relationships
with the world and beings around you!
