Yoga has had a powerful impact on my life over the last 10 years. I was introduced to Yoga in 2007 when I was fighting an eating disorder. Yoga saved my life and was an instrumental piece in my recovery. I learned the beauty of imperfection. I began to accept my defeats with my head up and my eyes wide open. Yoga helped me to build my roads on today, because tomorrows ground it too uncertain for plans and futures have a way of surprising us. I learned that I really can endure…that I really am courageous…and that I really do have worth. I want to give this back to my students and share all the knowledge I have learned through my 200 hour training and my own personal experiences. My yoga style aims to bring a sense of balance, strength, flexibility, and mindfulness to my students. I believe this can be accomplished by showing up and doing the work.
When I first started yoga, it was my escape. It was a place for me to be still and silent and clear my mind. As I grew in my practice I began to experience and really appreciate the wholesome benefits. By showing up to my mat everyday, I was energizing my body, renewing my mind and embracing my spirit which lead me to achieve an optimal state of health. Yoga has become such a rewarding journey and has allowed me to truly thrive in everyday life. I am excited to share my passion for wellness with this community and watch as new journeys unfold.

Back in 2010, a friend recommended we take yoga before and after running a half marathon in Chicago. It was the perfect compliment to sore and tight muscles and I became hooked. Through the years I've ditched the running but have found yoga is the greatest partner to biking, walking and just plain old living. It's truly a life changing practicing.
Flexibility, strength and lots of personal insights have been gifted to me through my yoga practice. I hope to pass along these gifts to my students in a playful, challenging and always safe way.
