Thanks for visiting Rx’d Yoga. I started this site because I truly believe yoga helps every aspect of your life. I was in a severe car accident in 1999 that left me with little mobility in my right leg and subsequently took up yoga reluctantly. After just a few months of consistent practice I started to see how much of a positive impact it was having on my life. After several years of practicing I decided to leave my career in finance to teach yoga. It is my hope to change other peoples lives as well. Nothing brings me a greater sense of satisfaction than someone who takes my class and says “I feel so much better.”
Yoga allows one to become aware of his or her weaker links not just physically but also mentally. There have been many times that I have addressed my fears on the mat that have allowed me to dive deeper into my challenges off the mat. For example, running my first 50k there were numerous times my body wanted to quit but my breathe and mental fortitude from my yoga practice helped me recite “Just keeping moving.” That mantra carried me to the finish line. I don’t just do yoga and run; I also aim to keep up with my active 9 year old and infant, crossfit, bike and swim. My hope is that this site will support whatever physical pursuit you are involved with by giving you the yoga to keep your body strong and balanced. Rx’d Yoga is my interpretation of yoga for a healthy life.
