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, and have collected hours of continuing education & trainings since then. My trainings have had a focus on human anatomy, proper alignment, safe adjustments and assists, as well as yoga philosophy and meditation. My classes range from Vinyasa Flow, pre/post-natal, Gentle/Restorative, Ashtanga, & Rocket Vinyasa, with all levels in mind and the belief that yoga is beneficial to everyone and anyone.
My enjoyment of practicing Ashtanga Yoga & meditation, embodying a nurturing motherhood, and love of music also positively influence my style of teaching. It is with deep gratitude that I serve others in the practice of yoga asana and meditation.
