Thank you for visiting Aroma Yoga! I'd like to take a more personal approach to connecting with you by sharing some of my journey in hopes that we will one day practice yoga together, or that you will build trust in me to practice with your family.
I was introduced to Yoga over 10 years ago but in recent years began to study Aromatherapy, Reflexology and came into a more committed and dedicated self Yoga practice. My self healing journey unfolded amazingly as I integrated these therapies into my every day life. I soon realized that I wanted to give back and dedicate my life to sharing Yoga, Aromatherapy and its benefits with friends, family, children, seniors, those suffering from anxiety, under privileged communities, just hoping to make a positive difference in others lives, our society and even the world.
I studied Integrative Yoga Therapy at Sundara Yoga Therapy Center becoming a Registered Yoga teacher through the Yoga Alliance. Also certified as a Trauma Sensitive Yoga teacher specializing to help those suffering from General Anxiety Disorders, Panic Disorders and Post Traumatic Stress Disorders. I have battled anxiety most of my life, so specializing in this area truly hits a deepness of healing within me that I can share with others.
Yoga therapy and Aromatherapy harmoniously helped me find a true essence of who I am, and I am honored to share what I've learned with as many people as I can in my lifetime. I look forward to practicing with you and through it help guide you to find your own Yoga, and comfort by staying true to yourself in your own individual journey. I believe in teaching our youth the positive healthy benefits of Yoga, helping them incorporate it into their lifestyle to benefit them as they continue to grow. I currently teach Yoga to youth with Del Valle I.S.D's After-school Centers on Education program at Popham Elementary, I believe integrating Yoga practice into our public school systems is essential to our children's health and well being, I am so grateful for this opportunity. I also enjoy working with senior citizens in the community, introducing them to practices that help improve their minds, bodies and overall health. Sharing Yoga and quality time helps give them a sense of appreciation for the life they live and the paths they have walked, spending time and being able to help them is a great honor and I cherish every moment.
I offer a diverse and wide variety of opportunities to share Yoga with you, your family and friends, whether under the moon, outdoors embracing nature, with a group of fellow athletes or in a home environment for a private session I hope you make time to join me. I'm currently studying Aromatherapy, Reflexology & recently Reiki Level 1 certified. I am committed to my learning and sharing with others, to make a positive difference in this world. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about my journey, I hope to connect with you soon and learn more about yours!

Integrative Yoga Therapy helps give an in depth understanding of Yoga as a vehicle for global wellness. Based on the traditional elements of Yoga: posture, breath, guided imagery, meditation and deep relaxation. These are complemented with a broad understanding of health and the healing process both from a Yoga perspective and with the current mind-body health movement. This vision of healing is not just for the individual or the Yoga classroom. The roots of illness are social and cultural, while the effects are planetary. For this reason the focus is social, cultural, and ecological as well as personal and spiritual. By bridging ancient insights and modern wellness, Integrative Yoga Therapy has a vital role to play in the rapidly expanding field of mind-body health and healing and in the healing of individuals, communities and our planet.-IYT
