I am a native Chicagoan and love the outdoors. My life is filled with excitement as I am a mother of three very active school age kids who def keep me on my toes. I began my yoga journey first at home struggling through videos from the library and eventually found myself at my first Bikram yoga class. It was there in the hot room that I found the practice to be inspiring me beyond that of flexibility and I decided to become a yoga instructor.
As an instructor I bring the best parts of myself to my classes. I am an avid lover of the outdoors so many of my classes are open air, I especially love practicing on the beach and offering classes in nature spaces like around a fire or at a local park. Besides open air practices I love music and love teaching Trap Yoga classes and because I love art and culture I collaborate often in art spaces for classes themed under The Art of Yoga.
While I teach in non traditional settings I offer students an opportunity to get onto their mat and into their bodies. My focus in teaching is based on yogic principles with an intention on promoting healthy range of motion, breath awareness and body alignment. My classes vary from gentle to more physical yet I enjoy teaching where it meets the needs of the student. I also have a passion for teaching yoga to particular communities including underserved communities, faith based groups, and yoga for athletes.
