Pam has been practicing yoga for over 15 years and fell in love with hot yoga in 2005. After two severe leg injuries, yoga proved to be the best medicine for recovery and continued improvement in strength and mobility. She is twice-certified at the 200 hour level and has earned certifications in nutrition counseling and personal training.
Pam is originally from Michigan and a graduate of Michigan State University. She enjoys traveling, cooking, and outdoor activities. She completed her master's degree from Keller Graduate School at DeVry University in 2012.
Pam is a passionate teacher who believes in the potential of each student. She works to create an environment that is fun, nurturing, and rewarding. She likes to motivate her students with encouragement and understanding to challenge themselves to gain maximum benefits from their practice. Her most common advice is to have a consistent yoga practice, have fun with your practice, and drink plenty of water. Yoga brings positive change to people: Both from the inside out and the outside in.
I have immense respect and appreciation for the gifts and benefits of yoga. Those benefits might be different for each person. It could be a great workout, increased energy, reduced stress, increased focus and awareness, or spiritual clarification. Whatever it is, the potential is limitless. As you grow, yoga grows with you.
Yoga practice is not just something we do on a mat once a day. The practice continues in mind and body through every personal interaction, every activity, and helps us have balance and strength in our everyday lives. I am truly blessed to be able to share yoga with others. I look forward to sharing the gift of yoga with you!
