Bliss Maker

Yoga found me when I was in a dark place with myself. I was still young, only 18, and didn't really know where I fit in or who I was yet. I was at the gym one day and saw a yoga class posted for that day and decided to try it. I instantly fell in love, throughout the class I was breathing in positivity and breathing out any negative thoughts or energy. By the end of that first class I walked out with my head held a little bit higher and a feeling that weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I continued to practice daily because not only did my body feel great but my soul did too. Fast forward nine years, I'd stopped practicing but just when I got back to that unsure place in my life yoga has found me again. I took my first hot class here at inner bliss, ironically the instructor was talking about loving yourself and not letting negative thoughts get the best of you. Yoga mixed with a bit of motivational speaking is the best! Now here I am excited to be a bliss maker, so that I can help yoga find the people that need it most. 

The best thing about yoga is… total relaxation, the fact that practicing yoga is practicing self love.  

Without yoga… I'd have a difficult time finding inner peace, it's the best time to connect and check in with myself. 

I am not defined by… anyone but myself. 

Love is… the root of all things good.

The best hugs are… all hugs!

The best time of day is… the morning- it's your fresh start. 

I heart Cleveland because... it's where I met the love of my life! 

Locally you might find me… exploring Lakewood. I'm an avid foodie and I love supporting local spots. 

If I could live anywhere I would live… in a bungalow on the beach in Hawaii 

To keep things interesting… a little fact about me is that I'm also singer/songwriter! I've been writing, recording and performing for 15 years.
