I started practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to gain flexibility lost from running. After recognizing the mental health benfits, I know now practice to keep myself ground through a healthy mind, body, and spirit. I completed my 200-hr yoga teacher training in 2017 through Yoga Six Chicago, eager to join a community focused on compassion and self care. I strive for an empowered, lighthearted environemtn for my students to explore their vinyasa practice. I am also a wellness coach with my MS in nutrition, where I focus on building realistic nutrition goals, managing stress and anxiety, and exploring the concept of simplifying.

I want to first understand what my new student wants to work, reasons why, and then work to tailor my teaching methods to their specific style and comfort level. I also work to establish teacher/student agreements, focusing around realistic goals and ways to achieve them.

I also practice wellness coaching focused on self care, where I have my MS in Nutrition, Culinary Certification, and BS in Food Science. My main goal is to approach wellness in a multifaceted way, recognizing that different aspects of wellness will change depending on each student's life experiences/personal goals.
