Yoga Alliance accredited Sampoorna Yoga instructor. Focus on strength, kinesthetic awareness, pranayama, asana, meditation, relaxation, stress management, nutrition, and goal-orientation

Methodology

In regards to the actual yoga class my method goes as follows:
1. Introduction & Chanting
2. Pranayama
3. Warm-up & Strength Exercises
4. Logical Sequence of Asanas
5. Final Relaxation

In regards to life-coaching, I teach according to what a student wants to know and feels is most relevant to their needs in life. I have major sections that can be broken down in to subsections.
1. Stress-management (foundational understanding, importance, and exercises to practice)
2. Yoga (the spiritual side of yoga, finding purpose, understanding hardship, setting boundaries)
3. Nutrition (effects on mental & spiritual health, effects on the subtler systems of the body, finding inspiration to adhere to a diet that works for you)
4. Mindfulness (gaining control and consciousness over your decisions, asking yourself the important questions in the moment)
5. Goals (discovering interests, using interests to set goals, the importance of goals, refining world view, staying motivated)

Due to the pandemic, I understand many people do not want to meet in person. Since my teaching preference is in person, I'd like to meet outside in local parks where we can lay out our yoga mats and maintain 6+ ft distancing comfortably. This is important, especially for Yoga so that I can make corrections and understand the limitations of my students. Conversations are also more fluid and healing in person until a consistent rapport is built and at that point phonecalls/webcam can be warranted. I will be wearing a mask when making postural corrections. Hand sanitizer provided.

Background

I was a student of sports exercise science and stress management in my 3rd year at North Carolina State University. I decided to take an extended academic break due to the pandemic and explore other avenues of healthful living. This led me to spend time on WWOOF farms, which exposed to me a richness and happiness in life I had been unconscious of until then. I was able to put my values and desires into action by giving selflessly to others and living modestly. I got a yoga certification so I could continue a life of giving, while still following my passion for mental, physical, and spiritual health. I have a fountain of knowledge I cannot wait to share with others.

Experience

Visions Service Adventures in Perú Aug 1 - 24, 2013
I participated in a three and half week excursion to Urubamba, Perú in the Andes mountains. I took part in multiple fulfilling projects, including: construction of farm irrigation canals, construction of a local preschool, construction of brick ovens for a nearby village, and providing meaningful work hours at the carpentry shop down the street of our housing complex. I immersed myself into the traditional music during festivals and parties, learned Spanish from the natives and taught them English, ate local food, and took a trip to Machu Picchu and other heritage sites. I learned about independent travel, money management, evasion of dangerous foods and water, and was introduced to a passion for service and leadership.

Dominican Republic June 22 – 30, 2014
I participated in a high school extra curricular learning program that included a service abroad component (high school Spanish credit) with eight other students. We participated as volunteer mentors/ motivators/ teacher’s assistants for the Mariposa Foundation, which focuses on inspiring young under-privileged girls to get an education and understand the significance of self-worth. I took this time to work on my Spanish, and helped some of the girls with their English. We painted the house of one of the girls from the learning center and participated in a Dominican feast and party. I learned that happiness comes from your outlook on life, and not from your situation or possessions.

SOLO Southeast Sept 15 - Oct 13 2017
Completed a two- week intensive EMT-B course and 5 day WEMT module. I passed the national registry exam qualifying me to become recognized legally for practice in 42 different states. I was lead to get this certification due to a desire to address the health concerns of others (and be prepared in case of emergency). I found soon after that I was much less interested in treating the effects of injury and illness than I was preventing them all together. This drove me to go back to college and pursue a health exercise science degree, so I could better understand the effects of exercise and nutrition on the long-term health of the body. Getting this WEMT-B certification was a major turning point in my understanding of my goals and interests.

WWOOF USA March 20 2020 - Now
I was taking a gap semester while attempting to transfer from NC State to UNC because they had a superior sports science program, but I decided to extend my academic break due to the pandemic. I wanted to take my education into my own hands and reach out to WWOOF farms so I could engage in something that was more than the experiences I had been exposed to until that point in my life. I learned many valuable lessons, but the most important of all was realizing my own inimitable value. I gained so much confidence, because I found myself being needed for different roles depending on the farm I was on at the time. I built a wooden worktable, built a ramp for an outdoor shower, repaired the fencing of a duck coop, and stripped the bark off of logged pine trees on a small homestead in Cedar Grove, NC. I harvested bountiful varieties of veggies and packaged them for CSA distribution in the morning, then went back to the house at night to take care of special needs adults while staying in a live-in community in Kimberton, PA. One of my best memories is going out at night with another volunteer and gazing at the legions of fireflies down in the lush pastures of the valleys below hilltop that housed the majority of the community dwellings. I sanded and re-stained the cypress wood walls of a turmeric farmer’s mudroom, restored and repainted his old church pew, built him a window frame, lacquered his pine ceiling, harvested grapes for wine-making and weed-whacked for hours down in Gainesville, FL. By engaging in this my life has become so full, and I have become happier than I could have ever previously imagined.

Yogi Hari’s Ashram Oct 2 – Oct 16 2020
I completed a two-week Yoga Certification course in Miramar, FL that has been accredited by Yoga Alliance. I am now qualified to teach Sampoorna Yoga classes, give corrections on many asanas, and guide meditation and chanting exercises. The style of Yoga that was focused on in the course is extremely friendly to all age groups and medical histories. It can be tailored to accommodate specific needs and limitations. There are also substitutions that can be made to challenge advanced Yogis.
