I started practicing yoga in 2014. I received my 230 hour Certification in July 2018 from Asheville Yoga Center, and my RYT 200 from the Yoga Alliance in August 2018. I received my 500 hour Certification in August 2020 from Asheville Yoga Center.
After working for decades, first as a waitress, various desk jobs and night school, eventually progressing to a paralegal degree / career, I found myself tired, burned out, and frustrated. Yoga became my safety net, my bliss. As my practice continued, it became my passion. I felt driven to learn more, do more, give more back.
With the loving support and encouragement of my husband, family members, and countless friends and mentors in and out of the yoga community, i decided to take my shot, turn in my notice at work, and pack up my cubicle. So many people to thank, so little space. You know who you are - Thank You!
The last three years of this journey have been both brutal and beautiful. Brutiful, as Brooke shared in one of her yoga classes. To leave a state job, with decent pay and good benefits, that I had served in for over 10 years, and start over from scratch, was both terrifying and exhilarating. It still is.
My goal for opening inscape yoga is to help others find the inner peace, self awareness and confidence, physical fitness, and wealth of love and friendships that the yoga community provides. Along the way, if I can inspire and help others find the will to pursue and fight for their dreams, persevere, take their shot, it will all be worth it!
It is our mission to provide a variety of beginner friendly to advanced yoga practices to bring balance to the mind, body, & spirit within a welcoming community. Yoga is for everyone!
"If we believe that we were created by God — whatever our understanding of God may be — then we see love as a divine gift...At the core of love is recognizing the uniqueness and the individuality of a person."
Armin A. Zadeh, The Forgotten Art of Love
the unique essence or inner nature of a person, place, thing, or event
