Trained in YTT 200 hr
Fun Fact: My favorite thing to cook is a bolognese sauce; I got the recipe from an Italian roommate’s grandmother in Naples.
It took me a few months but I realized I was intimidated; no one here is intimidating. These days I crave yoga classes, for the heat, the hard work, the quiet. I love chaturanga because it took me 2 years to build the strength to do it. I love warrior II because it’s a boss pose. I love standing bow because balance has always been difficult for me. Because of Indigo, my balance has gone from “concerning for someone her age” to “bad but maybe she won’t fall and hurt herself.” Who knew engaging your core was key.
After coming to Indigo for a few years, YTT 200 felt like a natural next step, thought it was really Maureen Bizyak who convinced me to sign up. Teacher training was a spectacular experience–shoutouts to Claudine, JA, Dec, all my fellow trainees, and all the students who take class. The community here is truly special, and I feel thankful to be a part of it. I’m excited to share my learning and for the opportunity to teach at Indigo.
