Why did you get into practicing and teaching yoga?My first yoga classes were in 1995. I took a 12 week beginner series in Appleton. I just had my oldest son and trying to deal with being a single mom. It really changed how I dealt with stress and helped me learn more about my mind and body working together. I fell deeply in love. Tell us a bit about your background and family I am from Appleton. I went to high school in Hortonville. I have one sister,one brother and my parents (my best friends), all live in town. Three kids- 19, 12, 11. 1 dog – American bulldog, Minnie. 1 cat – Kitty. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? I love the outdoors. Hiking, biking, kayaking, paddle boarding, walking my dog, Minnie. I spend a lot of time at my kids sports. There is always practice or a game to go to. I love to sew, quilt, and garden, as well. What do you try to bring to your yoga classes? What can we expect in the classes you teach? I really like working the heart with interval moves, as well as, working the mind with slow holds. I hope to give people a good workout and yet leave feeling calm and relaxed. Laughing is very encouraged in my classes!
