I started practicing yoga poses on my own while living in the Caribbean. When I moved to Nacogdoches TX. I started practicing seriously at Morning Glory Yoga Studio and have incorporated my Yoga practice into my everyday life. I have now become a student of the yogic lifestyle to include asanas (poses) and the other seven limbs of Yoga. The life experience that I bring with me into my practice include serving as a United States Marine, an educator for CPS (Chicago Public Schools), Legal Aid Para-legal, Entrepreneur, Patient advocate (UTMB) and other miscellaneous service related en devours. I received my certification through the Kingwood Yoga Wellness Center under the B.K.S. Iyengar tradition and am registered with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).
