I started out teaching yoga, accidentally. I needed a job and had a talent for teaching. Naturally athletic, I needed to learn to move more as I was depressed after a few hard years. I decided to teach full time and taught in Fairfax and Loudoun County. I really got my name out there in particular by teaching at Lifetime Fitness in Ashburn/Sterling. All of my classes were packed and my Sunday Yin class had 65+ people in regular attendance. I did not like the corporate pressure. My manager actually asked me why I was teaching Yin, the most popular class on the schedule. I started teaching Yin, because no one else in this entire region taught it. I personalized my class and took some of the basics of Yin theory and expanded it. Many of my students are in my current classes.
In 2012, I left Lifetime and opened my own studio – Roots Yoga Studio – and expanded my corporate client base, private clients and added Yoga Teacher Training programs. We are a Registered Yoga School, with Yoga Alliance. We may offer another training Winter 2018. Now, I have a healthy private client base, corporate customers and offering 8 week sessions in South Riding and Chantilly.
