She continues to expand her practice and teaching by attending workshops and events as often as she can. Tonee received her 500hr advanced yoga certification with Cyndi Lee at Om yoga in 2016.

The most important work I can do in this life is the work I do to improve myself by being the change I wish to see in this world.”
