I am a Certified Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance RYT200 and received my training from HeartWork Studio in Northfield, MN. I am also certified in Yoga Calm for Kids, Prenatal Yoga, Yin and Barre. I have been practicing yoga for 8 years now. When I began practicing yoga it was just another form of exercise. Not until last year did I realize how much more yoga can be. After struggling with anxiety I turned to yoga. Yoga has lessened my anxiety more than I thought possible. I want to share with others how much yoga can benefit them, for whatever reason they are practicing.
