Accessibility and inclusiveness are my passions. As my professional passion for yoga grew, I noticed the general image of yoga (for adults) was not inclusive or nor accessible. I was surprised at how often other studios I visited never mentioned adapting, modifying, or giving other options to people who couldn’t “touch the floor” or bend this way.” It was then I decided to open my own studio and create a safe space to dispel the myths of who can and cannot do yoga.
Peaceful Chaos Yoga was born out of the idea that all people deserve the opportunity to practice yoga in an open, inclusive, and affirming environment. Using a teaching style that focuses on inclusion, we offer group and private classes specifically aimed at getting people to try yoga regardless of age, mobility, body size, injury, and cognitive, physical, or emotional challenges.

I live to get to know my students. Yoga is not just asana (movement), yoga is a way of living. I don't mean becoming vegan and giving up coffee! Yoga literally means to yoke, to bring two things together - the body and the mind. I guide the asana portion of yoga for my students, and offer ideas, mantras, resources for thier needs on and off the mat.

Accessibility and inclusiveness are my passions. As a mother of a child with medical complexities, as well as cognitive and physical challenges, I was always looking for a sensory friendly and accessible option for recreation and fun for our family. As I researched how to meet my son’s needs, I learned yoga was particularly good for children like my son. Wanting to learn how I could adapt my personal yoga practice in a way that would be accessible to my son, I enrolled in a children's yoga teacher training.
Becasue I felt my intial training wasn't "science-cy" enough, I embarked on the standards 200 HR "yoga for typical adult healthy populations" training. Halfway through that course I decided I wanted to teach special populations. I haven't stopped learning since!
All ages, all abilities, all populations.
I am currently learning ASL so I can guide yoga for the deaf and hard of hearing community.
Shortly after opening my studio, a new student thanked me for, "openimg a yoga studio that isn't prissy." The same general sentiment has been uttered by many of my students - Peaceful Chaos Yoga is down to earth.
Don't let the idea of yoga intimidate you.
Ask your instructor if they offer modifications or variations for students that may not be able to do the pose as the instructor demonstrates.
Be honest with your instructor as to your physical limitations, injuries, or medical conditions.
Do not work with an instructor that doesn't listen, hear, and see you as an individual.
