ABOUT MY PRACTICE
I’ve been a certified and practicing Yoga Instructor since 2011, currently offering public and private sessions. The foundation of my practice is the Word of God. My yoga practice combines scripture with the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of traditionally understood yoga concepts. By integrating breath, movement, and meditative awareness, I strive to promote an understanding of the inter-dependency of all these aspects as God created us, in order to "Love Him with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength." (Mark 12.30)
My sole purpose during each practice is to combine excellent yoga instruction with a Christ-honoring experience that offers an opportunity for everyone to authentically connect with God. I do this by integrating His Word, prayer, meditation, and the physical practice of yoga to relaxing, contemporary, and Christian music.
I offer private sessions, workplace yoga, contracted yoga practice for groups in medical treatment facilities, open public practices at host sites, retreat and workshop specialty practices, and much more.
I am able to tailor any requested or contracted practice to suit your needs; non-denominational and 12-Step Recovery oriented practices are available.

A BIT ABOUT MYSELF
My walk with Christ has been a slow progression of spiritual growth and dependence on Him for over 30 years.
Raised in San Diego, I joined the Air Force shortly after high school. I quickly got married and started having babies as I got to know Jesus in 1991. Having been involved in ministry consistently for almost 25 years, I am familiar with the idea of “pouring out” my life for Christ. However, my world as I knew it came crashing down around me in 2010 and I found myself no longer able to pour out the love of Christ; I was deeply wounded and fearful. I resigned from all lay-ministry and barely made it to work each day.
After five months of deep, dark depression, I was encouraged to practice some "self-care." I recognized my need for recovery; I needed healing. I needed to re-learn how to connect with my Creator. I needed His unconditional love and nurturing hand. Christ-centered Yoga was a new group meeting at my home church that offered mindful, physical, and spiritual connection to Christ, so I attended simply as a get-away. During the rest of 2010 and the beginning of 2011, I received so many benefits from this practice I couldn't wait to share. I completed training in November 2011 and have been sharing my practice ever since.
I realize God is consistently drawing me on an incredible journey I never thought possible; HIS journey.
He has completely changed my desires and dreams. This ministry continues to be a crucial part of my spiritual practice, and I consider it a divine privilege to pour out the love and blessings I’ve received from Christ through my yoga practice.
Join me for a Christ-centered yoga practice as I conduct public sessions weekly near Canfield, Ohio.
