Tina has always loved ﬁtness. After many faithful years of intensive weight training, running and sports in all forms she began to suffer from more frequent injuries and chronic low back pain. Tina began her yoga journey in September 2012 by practicing Hatha, Power & Sculpt. She fell in love with the challenge & the inner peace and was hooked! She decided to pursue teacher training & certiﬁcation, attaining her 200-hour Yoga Alliance certiﬁcation in Hatha June 2014, and immediately following, her 200-hour Vinyasa power certiﬁcation. Tina has a great passion for both teaching & practicing yoga; not only for the physical beneﬁts it affords, but the spiritual beneﬁts as well.
