I have been a competitive athlete since a very early age, loving the endorphin rush and the thrill of competition. I completed the Iron Man in Lake Placid in 1999, the Galveston Half Iron Man in 2012 and the Iron Man in Louisville, Kentucky also in 2012 and was a competitive swimmer in Canada. After enduring many unresolved injuries throughout my body I turned to yoga. Through yoga I found a new edge and understanding, free from injuries. Peace with strength, flexibility and endurance were what then evolved for me. I tell follow athletes and students to listen to their own bodies and that they hold the master key to their possibilities. Various teachers have influenced me in the practice of yoga including Baron Baptiste and Dave and Cheryl Oliver. Still learning I hope to continue to help others to realize their potential.
