  I first started my yoga practice over 10 years ago at the old studio, Bikram Yoga Madison on University Ave. I was overweight and was dealing with some health issues. I was soon hooked on the hot yoga and practiced, on average, five times a week. I loved it! I slowly lost the extra pounds and felt healthier than ever before. I went through the teacher training with Marit, Joan, and Karen Rigsby. I completed the training but never taught since I went back to school. I carried the knowledge and yoga principles over the past 10 years but rarely made it to the studio.

 I recently retired after having spinal fusion surgery. I came back to Inner Fire Yoga shortly after my recovery from surgery. The regular practice has erased all back pain, and I feel like a new person. I so enjoy coming to the studio, and it warms my heart to just be around other yogis.

 I decided in May that I wanted to share my practice of yoga with others and signed up for the Summer Intensive Teacher Training through the studio. I am starting my final week of training, and it has been the most rewarding experience I have ever had. The wealth of information from all the studio teachers has just made me want to know more and more. I am very excited to begin this new journey in my life and hope I can pass my love of yoga on to others as I continue my forever-evolving practice.
