I first came to yoga as an injury rehabilitation and flexibility maintenance program. After 18 years of gymnastics I had abused my body in the name of competition.

Within minutes of my first yoga class starting I knew I had found something that had been missing in my life.

I spent the next 6 years practicing several times a week and seeing my body in a new light and more depth.

When my husband joined the Marine Corps and we moved to California I had the opportunity to pursue my passion for yoga and embark on my teaching journey in 2011.

I started it as a way to strengthen my own practice but quickly found my desire to help others reawaken a love for their bodies drove me toward an unexpected career path.

Yoga Trainings:

  • Yoga Works 200hr Costa Mesa, California 2011
  • Paddle Board Bliss SUP yoga 25hr San Diego, California 2013
  • If I Was a Bird Kids Yoga 95hr San Diego, California 2014
  • Stoked Yoga SUP yoga 25hr San Diego, California 2016
  • Alchemy of Flow and Form 300hr San Marcos, Texas 2015-2017
  • AcroVinyasa Acro Yoga 100hr Bali 2016

Being an adventure seeker, I found myself delving into every avenue of yoga I could find. I found SUP yoga in 2013 jumping in with both feet as my first time on a board was my teacher training.

Upon moving to Fort Worth in 2014 I was disappointed to find little opportunity available in the area to practice SUP yoga. This is when Just Be Well Yoga was born. Out of a desire to build a SAFE community of trained instructors and students who were excited to challenge themselves in a new avenue of yoga.

Start registering for classes in Dallas here.

Artist, biker, and runner summed me up for many years. I began to notice a need to stretch out some of my aches and pains and looked into yoga. Quickly (as many do)

I began to notice that not only did it help my physical body, but the transformation and joy that it brought to my mind was overwhelming.

I began my practice in Chicago and then onto California, where I tried many different variations. Moving to New York my practice only continued to develop and strengthen. Once in Dallas, I found Dallas Yoga Center where I was able to receive my 200 Hour Yoga certification. Shortly after I found and completed Just Be Well Yoga’s 25 Hour SUP Yoga training.

Water has always been a fear of mine. With the start of the New Year I decided to not be held back by fear anymore, but instead to face it head first.

The joy it brings to be set free from the land and onto the water is magical. I am excited to set afloat with not only the sea baby’s, but also the terrified curious creatures and give all the freedom to float and move through the world. 

enjoy the Dallas waterways with Tory!
