Experience and Background:
I was first introduced to yoga in my freshman year in college. Like many I was initially drawn to the physicality of the practice. As I began to dedicate more and more time on the mat the more subtle aspects of yoga began to reveal themselves. It was this small shift that steered my personal practice into a desire to teach. After college I moved to Chicago and completed a 200RYT program at Moksha Yoga. Once I completed the program I began to teach at their studios. I also took the position of workshop coordinator. It was through this role that I had the privilege of being introduced to and practicing with several master teachers from varying styles and backgrounds in the yoga community. Aadil Palkhivala, Judith Lasater, Shiva Rea, and Rod Stryker to name a few. I am forever grateful for this opportunity as it allowed me to create a style of practicing and teaching that feels completely authentic and intuitive, but is deeply rooted in the core traditions and alignment of classical yoga.
Yoga has been a gift that I am deeply grateful for. I believe it is a vital part of finding and maintaining balance on and off of the mat.
It has been a teacher and a refuge in every changing aspect of my life.
Most recently my yoga practice has proven to be an essential part of navigating life with two young children. It is one that challenges me, grounds me and constantly opens my eyes to the inherent beauty in each moment.
