Upon her return to Miami, she discovered how Skanda Yoga practice was beneficial to her healing process by helping her improve her mobility, strength and flexibility.
With the guidance of her teachers Ken and Lina during the Skanda Yoga Teacher Training in 2017, she had uncovered a different view of life and the endless possibilities that come through with her yoga practice. She fell in love with the idea of being able to challenge the body in a unique way that other physical activities do not and persevere to achieve a personal goal. She is eager to share her enthusiasm with others guiding them through self-nurture and self-discovery in the asana practice.
