Having been a golfer for many years... approximately 5 years ago I began taking yoga classes to supplement my other fitness activities (including golf) to improve my flexibility and range of motion. At the time, improving flexibility was all I thought yoga would do for me. Subsequently, I realized that yoga offered me other physical benefits such as strength, balance and endurance. It offered mental benefits such as stress reduction, calming my mind, and improving my focus and concentration. Yoga also offered me spiritual benefits such as recognizing the need to live a happier, more balanced life, bringing me more inner peace, and reminding me to be a more caring, compassionate and loving human being.
While on vacation in Scottsdale in November 2014, I was took a series of Yoga for Golfers classes at Troon North. Katherine Robert's Yoga for Golfers is a golf-specific conditioning program that integrates yoga postures and breath control to improve flexibility, core conditioning, balance, strength, endurance, focus and concentration to play better, stronger and longer.
In the spring of 2015, I became a certified Level 2 Yoga for Golfers instructor. Subsequently, as my passion for my yoga practice deepened, I completed an intensive 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and Yin Yoga instructor certification. I am also interested in learning more about Ayurveda, aromatherapy, yoga nidra, mindfulness, mediation and restorative yoga.
I look forward to sharing my passion for yoga with you at Navina!
