I began on my yoga journey three years ago when a friend purchased a Groupon to a hot yoga studio. I was hesitant to try it but have always been an active person and enjoyed running. I fell in love with hot yoga immediately and started to search for a studio closer to home. Thatʼs when I found Sumits in Gilbert.

I quickly fell in love with the studio and staff and began to deepen my practice. My background is in Social Work and although I love working with people was finding myself burnt out on the job. Yoga gave me a sense of peace and serenity that I have never felt anywhere else. I started working at Sumits Gilbert in August of 2012 and was one of the first staff members to help with the opening of Hot Lotus in February of 2014.

I feel honored and blessed to be able to be an instructor after finishing my 200 hour certification through Hot Lotus Teacher Training. Yoga has become my focus, passion and love on and off the mat and has literally changed my life for the better. Because I practice and teach yoga regularly, I am a better mother, friend and human being in general.
