Thank you for visiting my home on the web!
I’m an RYT, Reiki Practitioner, Certified Nutritionist and Wellness Educator with a B.S. of Sociology and Art. I’m an instructor and studio owner of The Yoga Place in Menominee, Michigan. My passion is teaching yoga (of course) and how to own their practice and, more importantly, their lives.
I fell in love with yoga in 2003 in Minnesota, where I’m from, when my mom and sisters and I took a class for Mother’s Day. I’ve practiced at studios where I’ve lived but when we moved to Menominee at the end of 2010 there was no studio. So in 2011, I became an RYT-200 from my teacher, MaryKay Marquart, E-RYT 500. In April 2012, I opened The Yoga Place.
Fear is natural, and starting a yoga studio is not something I did without feeling very worried about how I was going to pay the studio’s bills plus pay my own rent! As one yoga teacher put it, my landlord won’t accept karma. But, over the last year, I now know that The Yoga Place is a wonderful addition to the area and we only keep growing!
I practice yoga to own my life. And I invite you to own your life too!
See you on the mat!
