The Sheer Blue Crew
The amazing, inspiring and completely gorgeous inside and out crew of ladies that keeps Sheer Blue afloat...
My yoga journey began 20 years ago when a local health club started offering yoga. When it came to exercise, I was always in the mindset of “no pain, no gain!” As age and injuries happened, I started to add more and more yoga classes to my schedule.
I practiced yoga as often as I could take a class! What started out as just another physical challenge soon became so much more! I learned that yoga is a practice for not only the body, but the mind and spirit as well!
In 2007, I attended teacher training at the former Midwest Power Yoga in Appleton, WI. I have studied Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative Yoga. After becoming a Certified Yoga Teacher, I opened my own studio in Plymouth, Wisconsin and created area programs for cancer survivors, teachers and local athletes. Over time, I sold my studio (and am happy to report, it is still a successful business) and went back to my favorite thing to do-teach yoga. Which leads me to our next chapter…
After raising our two children and 14 years of teaching yoga, my husband and I sold our home in Plymouth and moved to our cottage in Weyauwega in 2020. We love Waupaca County and are looking forward to enjoying everything outside that we can.
I believe everyone and anyone can do yoga! The physical benefits of strength, flexibility and balance are complimented with the mental and spiritual benefits of calmness, acceptance and awareness.
I love pizza, traveling, laughing, writing, coffee dates, reading, being outside, deep conversations, the sky, being kind, growing, and yoga of course!
I've been practicing yoga now for 4 years but received my 200-hour yoga teacher training certificate in 2020 with a speciality in Kriya yoga. What is Kriya yoga, you ask? Come to my yoga class to find out! ;)
I love yoga because it helps me to feel like myself and cultivate the uniqueness that I am. I love that it magically brings like-minded souls together. It always leaves me feeling full of life - grounded, connected, and alive! I can't wait to meet you at one of my classes. I can promise that you will laugh, feel loved, and be connected to an amazing community!
My yoga journey began in June 2009 when my neighbor invited me to join her for yoga class. I had wanted to attend a class for quite some time, but found myself nervous and loaded down with excuses. I was not connected to my body or grounded in my heart. After that first class, I joyfully returned three times a week feeling lighter, stronger, more balanced and more grounded with each visit. My body began to change, as did my relationships with my family and my very self - all for the better. I am certified in Power Vinyasa Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Reiki healing. I consistently find connection to my way of being in this world through my own practices of each.
Within my yoga, meditation and Reiki practices, I connect and engage with an endless supply of tools to create possibility and guidance for my life. I share those practices with you during class and Reiki sessions. The lessons you learn in your energetic practices will become part of your life. Unload your excuses for not taking time to care for yourself. Find places and times to practice, find openness and find the gifts. You are always warmly welcome!
My husband was at work, my young daughter was snoring away in her bed. As my monkey mind chased every possible road of every thought that came to mind, I somehow stumbled on a Yoga With Adrienne video on YouTube. Having no idea what I was in for, I told myself, 'This is dumb - but I'm doing it anyway.' So, I grabbed a few pillows off the sofa and a blanket from the trunk and I proceeded to take my first ever 60-minute yoga class from the comfort of my living room. Five minutes in and I was hooked. This class changed my life forever. Somehow, it cracked my shell and began to pull me out of a funk I had been in for at least a year. Not only did I know I wanted more, I also knew I needed to know how to teach people how to do this yoga thing. I wish for the life of me that I could remember exactly which class it was that I took so I could take this class again and again! Fast-forward a few years - I've not stopped learning and growing through my yoga journey since that first time pressing play.
I'm a firm believer that everyone should have a meditation practice and I look forward to helping you to start or grow your meditation experience. I have found that a solid meditation practice has elevated my love of gentle, yin, restorative and yoga nidra styles of yoga. The slow, supported movements coupled with pranayama and Kriya breathwork practices are my happy place, allowing me to create space within to encourage calm and grounding on and off my mat.
Aside from yoga, I love the water, dogs, tacos, creating, REO Speedwagon & hanging with my family.
