Mama, speaker, teacher and writer, TaKisha has been practicing yoga since 2004 as a result of her own search for self and aching for self expression. After graduating from Virginia State University in 2004 with a degree in marketing, TaKisha worked as an advertising executive, marketing manager and copywriter for 11 years--earning a master's degree in publishing from The George Washington University along the way. A series of life changing events led her to begin speaking at women's conferences and writing about personal power, owning our stories and living a more intentional life. She began studying yoga more intensely in 2013 and began offering yoga and meditation after a transformational yoga teacher training experience as a way of supporting others in their journey to more intimately connect with their hearts, breath and bodies.
From the boardroom to the classroom, TaKisha is pleased to offer transformational yoga and meditation experiences for corporations, schools and the traditional studio environment in the nation's capital and surrounding cities. However, her greatest service is in helping others with the life work of becoming more intentional with their health, thoughts and daily rituals by owning their stories and guiding their attention back to their inherent power of choice. TaKisha's first course, a 7-day Story Detox, launched last fall and serves as the foundation for her quarterly Creative Synergy yoga and journaling workshop.
Currently, TaKisha teaching weekly Vinyasa and Buti yoga classes in Maryland, as well as workshops and lectures throughout the region.
