I began my yoga practice at age 12 after reading an article in Seventeen magazine. I had scoliosis, asthma, and an extreme aversion to gym class and competitive sports. Yoga was the first physical endeavor that allowed me to feel in control of my own body—with postural and breathing benefits, to boot.
In 2010, I pursued my 200hr teaching certification, followed by a 500hr certification in Therapeutic Yoga for Cancer, and have been teaching yoga full-time ever since. After moving to Chicago in 2011, I received 40hr Barre and AFAA group fitness certifications, and have expanded my teaching to include other fitness modalities.
I believe in the power of breath, movement, and alignment. I believe that yoga should be accessible to everyone, regardless of age or ability. I teach a powerful practice with a light heart. Students should come equipped with a sense of humor and a spirit of adventure!
