Over ten years ago, in hopes of finding a connection to my physical self and inner spirituality, I discovered a personal yoga asana & meditation practice. What came of it has been an astounding journey into the depths of my physical and mental well-being. It is my belief and experience that by practicing yoga and meditation, we can reach deeper into our Purusha, or Truest Self. During our practice, we learn to receive the space and clarity that naturally arises through the proper alignment of the physical and subtle body. From this, we can allow ourselves to feel and understand our most inherent state of being; peacefulness, contentment, bliss. It is my intention to guide others to find this on their mat, so that we all may act and serve from our truest and best selves in our everyday lives.
I am a 500 hour certified yoga instructor. I studied under the talented and knowledgeable Tom Quinn, Quinn Kearny, Geri Bleier, and Claire Mark at Yogaview Chicago. My trainings have had a focus on human anatomy, proper alignment, safe adjustments and assists, as well as yoga philosophy and meditation. My classes are traditional vinyasa flow. During the years of trainings, and in becoming a mother myself, I have developed a love of teaching prenatal yoga. My enjoyment of practicing Ashtanga Yoga, meditating, and love of music also positively influence my style of teaching. It is with gratitude that I serve others in the practice of yoga asana and meditation.
