I wandered into yoga classes a handful of times throughout the years until a broken collarbone sidelined me from most activity in early 2015. As I was on the mend, I came to Amazing Yoga hoping to rebuild physical strength and flexibility. I quickly received those benefits and so much more from the practice.
Cultivating calmness and presence on my mat increased my awareness and focus off of it. Learning to breathe into a difficult posture in the studio taught me how to lean in to a challenge in life. Letting go of what I didn’t need, I gained confidence, serenity, and joy.
From the beginning, I loved the energy of the classes at Amazing Yoga and the warm and welcoming community throughout all of the studios. In January 2016, I had the pleasure of completing the Amazing Yoga Teacher Training in Pittsburgh and am now so grateful to be part of the team. Yoga at Amazing is a gift that I have received and, through teaching, I hope to share that gift with others. I am a firm believer that yoga is for everyone and always enjoy the opportunity to help students develop a practice that fits and benefits them (and everyone around them!).
Outside of the studio, I am a family law attorney with Frank, Gale, Bails, Murcko & Pocrass, P.C. and find that my yoga practice helps my legal practice. It makes me better able to empathize with and understand clients and to find calm in the middle of tense situations.
I enjoy running, cooking, laughing, and exploring the streets, galleries, and tasty bites of our fine city and others around the world. I love dance in all forms and sit on the Board of the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. I am blessed to have a pretty amazing life and owe much of it to yoga.
Hope to see you in the studio!
