Hey everyone!

Thanks for stopping by my Yoga page/home studio Jaya Yoga Community!

Jaya is the Sanskrit word for victory! Or, in my own words, Hallelujah - Rejoice! 

Jaya describes exactly how I feel at this time in my life. Through learning, teaching, and practicing Yoga, Reiki, and HypnoBirthing I feel I can say I have found my Jaya. Of course it doesn't come without a lot of hard work, dedication, and love for my practice and myself. 

Yoga has taught me to love myself just as I am. It has taught me the power of surrender to find myself, to hear my souls longings, and to free myself from years of panic and anxiety. Through learning to hear my soul and find my true purpose, I now know that teaching this practice that I love so dearly is the only route for me.

So here I am! Eager to teach, share, and be connected to the AMAZING community of teachers, healers, lovers, friends, yogis, HUMANS that I'm so blessed to have in my life. I often remind myself that if I didn't teach, I would be a hard person to be around. Teaching allows me to share with students the lessons my teachers have passed down to me and selfishly it reinforces it into my daily life. As a teacher and a human on planet earth I believe it is so important to have moments throughout your week where you meet with yourself  through meditation, prayer, yoga, dance, song - anything that works for you! When we do this we have time to see our highest self in action. We get to know the real us. Underneath all the "stuff" we think we are, past all the layers of everything that blocks our vision there is LOVE. I'm thankful this practice has began to peel back those layers and it's truly an honor and blessing to watch that lifting of the veil for you guys, the students! 

More about me: I have over 800 hours of yoga teacher training through Yoga Alliance, I am a Reiki Master, Prenatal Yoga instructor, and HypnoBirthing Child Birth Educator. I teach weekly Yoga classes, Reiki circles, HypnoBirthing Birth Education classes, Baby and Me Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, and various workshops. I also offer private yoga and Reiki Healings. Teaching Yoga, HypnoBirthing, and Reiki is my greatest joy. Being a part of a community of yogis and healers has renewed my faith in such a huge way! Watching everyone connect, create friendships, and share in their practice brings such unity to our groups . Its just amazing to witness! Jaya Jaya Jai Jai Jai!! 

Aside from all of that my other joys are : My amazing husband Josh who also is a Reiki Master and has 200 hours of yoga teacher training. Our baby GIRL Jaya Josephine, and our beloved puppy ( our first baby) who is now passed on Lucy. My little family keeps me grounded and I'm so thankful for them!

With love and light,
