Here's a little bit more about Paige to satisfy any curiosity. . .
Music has been integral to Paige's life since she was a toddler learning Suzuki method violin and has studied music for over 20 years. Paige sees music as one aspect that makes us uniquely human. Sound has been crucial to humanity in both development of people physically and psychologically from the times of sound and vibration assisting in survival to sound becoming a deeper understanding of emotional connection within our lives. The intention of sound baths with Paige is to help individuals relax, meditate, and offer individuals space to heal emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
Paige's yoga journey began in 2008 when her mother insisted Paige take a yoga class during college to help her anxiety. She had no idea at the time how integral yoga would become to her life. In 2015 Paige began considering becoming a teacher and found Be the Love teacher training with the help of a dear friend and mentor. With the support of her family, Paige took the next step. Each day Paige learns something new about the practice and about herself. It is with the utmost joy that Paige now shares with those who choose to practice with her.
The first few years of her life were spent travelling the world with her family. This instilled into Paige a sense of wonder about the rest of the world. After her father retired, her family moved to a small farm in northern Michigan which became Paige's roots. Paige is a bit silly and she laughs rather loudly at times. She loves to eat, she devours books, and she loves playing with her two cats and cattle dog.
In addition to her education in yoga, Paige has a master of arts in anthropology and she teaches at Alpena Community College. Teaching has always been a passion of hers and each semester Paige is reminded to stay humble as she often feels she learns much more from her students than they learn from her.

Paige is also available for therapeutic yoga sessions on an individual basis for those who have specific needs and/or goals.
