Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

My Manduka creates an oasis for me to become all of me. When I step on my Manduka mat it is like I am stepping onto a mirror. My Manduka sees me in ways that no one else does, and provides with me with a safe and comfortable place to be who I am. No judgment, no criticism, just self- reflection. This mat is like no other mat. It is awesome! There is no place I would rather be than on my mat! My Manduka is my crystal ball- it knows where I am going, even before I do.

My practice takes me to the earth, the mat, around the world and to the intimate places of beauty and grace, and guides me to my truest, most vulnerable self. Yoga encourages me to be strong, positive, kind, and caring. The mat grounds me, provoking me to acknowledge the love that resounds within me - and to SHARE that love, that gratitude, with all my students.

I discovered yoga in 2003 and was intrigued by its wellness and expressive benefits. I began my personal practice and yoga journey then, and I have continued to move and grow as a yoga practitioner since. At the Nosara Yoga Institute, I participated in a vitalizing, life-opening experience of diligently studying and practicing yoga in their 200-hour teacher training. This is part of why we created iLa – to inspire LOVE & authenticity, & to create a sacred space for movement in The Wenatchee Valley.
