"I took my first Baptiste training after working for 10 years in Corporate America, and it opened my eyes to how much I had been hiding behind titles, masks and scripts. I had experience speaking in front of groups, but I had never actually been myself in front of people. This was terrifying at first, but then I realized levels of connection and power that were available from sharing and teaching authentically were so much greater than what I had experienced before. Today I have an amazing yoga community with my Baptiste Affiliate 'Namaspa' studios in Central Oregon, a wonderful marriage and I feel younger, more energetic and happier than ever! My intention in training teachers is for them to graduate ready to teach and share authentically from their own experience, in a Baptiste power yoga class or any other area in their relationships and professional lives, to achieve extraordinary results."
