Meet the Owner
I am the founder of Breathe & Bend Hot Yoga. Not only am I a female entrepreneur but I am also a female rotorcraft pilot. I absolutely love teaching yoga but most importantly being a student.
My favorite style of yoga is a HOT, SWEATY, Power class with assisting. I love attending workshops, traveling to different studios, and believe it or not, I do love the business side of owning a yoga studio. I found yoga & took my very first step when I was about 22 years old, and haven't looked back since. I fell in love with the practice of yoga.
In 2016 (2 days before my YTT training started), I decided I wanted to learn more about this amazing practice. I had zero intentions of ever "teaching" or even considering owning a yoga studio. I signed up for YTT to simply learn more about this thing called "yoga" that stole my heart. BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE. I learned so much about myself, the practice, met incredible people, gained confidence in every aspect of my life, and the list goes on. After YTT, I decided to offer occasional yoga classes in my daughters' playroom, word started to get out and before I knew it, Breathe & Bend was established. I was leading 17 classes per week and welcomed over 1,200 people through my basement doors.
My passion is simply sharing this practice, empowering people and creating a space where people know they can come to be fully supported. This journey has been so rewarding on so many levels. I am so grateful for the relationships and community, as well as the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of yoga that have shaped me.
