My yoga journey began in the Summer of 2009 after attending my first class at Moksha Yoga Studio in Chicago, IL. I fell in love with every aspect of yoga and found my body, mind and soul craving it when I was away form the studio. 

In the Fall of 2012, three days after giving birth to my son, I graduated (with over 600 hours) Moksha Yoga Teacher Program under the guidance of Darien Friesen. Through the year long training process I was fortunate enough to study with such Master Teachers as Aadil Palkhivala, Kathyrn Budig, Saul David Raye, Leeann Carey, Gabriel Halpern and many others.

In 2013, I was diagnosed with Graves Disease and began to look to yoga therapy to help ease my symptoms and nurse my body,mind and soul back to health. In these recent years through my own illness, yoga, meditation, sound healing and Shamanic Apprenticeship I have found my true calling to hold a safe space for others as they explore and heal all aspects of their being. 

In my classes you will find a very nurturing energy that allows students to gently work deeper within the body, mind and spirit to collectively begin to heal and elevate. My hope is to give my students a set of techniques and tools they may use in and out of the studio to achieve optimal health and self care routines. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story.
