I started practicing yoga out of high school as a way to stay toned and active. I have never enjoyed cardio or lifting weights, so naturally I gravitated towards a yoga practice. It didn’t take long to start feeling “the shift” in mindfulness. I began to investigate my breath and body differently, and develop a new appreciation for myself. I completed my 200HR training under Jill Jerome at the Yoga Loft, Chicago. My training was heavily focused on the Eight Limbed Path (Ashtanga) and Yoga Philosophy. My own teaching style weaves the 8 Limbed philosophy into accessible, intuitive flows, to help students understand their spiritual bodies. My goal is always to create a supportive, safe, judgement-free environment where students are encouraged to explore their own practice freely. I stay up to date with teaching tools through attending workshops and additional trainings. By the end of 2017 I will have completed an additional 300 hours of training under Wendy Dahl, Blue Sun Yoga.
