Holly began practicing yoga at home in 2003 after her sister gave her a Yoga book for Christmas. She soon found the practice helped to relieve tension in her body from long hours at the piano but it was only after her first studio class that Holly really experienced something special.
She felt a deep peace as if she had been renewed from the inside out. Yoga has contributed so much to Holly’s life that she decided to take the Teacher Training Program in the midst of completing her Education degree. She is currently an elementary school substitute teacher and a Yoga instructor.
Holly is passionate about children and has completed a training course through YogaKids, an internationally recognized program that specializes in teaching yoga to kids.
Holly is both inspired and committed to continue her journey of yoga by deepening her personal practice and growing as a teacher.
