"Three years ago I began soul searching for something different.  I had been in education for over 16 years, and just wasn’t feeling that was what I was supposed to do any more. I longed for something else.  I am person who loves to work out and lead a healthy lifestyle.  I knew I wanted to do something in the fitness realm, but didn’t want to be a personal trainer.  A friend suggested yoga certification.  I began my search in 2014, with no luck.  I stopped searching and gave up the idea about yoga.  In the summer of 2015, I started looking again for yoga teacher trainings.  I immediately found Simply Power Yoga.  I loved the warm and welcoming website, and found they were having a two week intensive yoga training in the fall.  I emailed Heidi to inquire about the training.  Having never taken a single yoga class in my life, I joined the 2-week intensive yoga teacher training and it has been one of the best decisions of my life.  Yoga allows me to just be me…not a mom, wife, friend, employee, etc.  I can roll out my mat and just flow.  I love it. 

I am also now certified to teach Barre, and I absolutely love love love these classes.  I love to move, and barre allows me to feel like a little girl at the ballet studio all over again. 

I am also a doTerra Wellness Advocate. I love essential oils and how they can be a healthy alternative to a person’s well being. 

I live in Hillsboro with my husband and three of my sons, and am a grandma! J   I have a son who is in the Marines. He is married with a beautiful three-month-old daughter named Briella Ann, and they live in North Carolina. "
