I found yoga (or yoga found me) when I was still in high school. Finding respite from my busy life, this practice challenged me both physically and mentally. I continued my practice throughout college and beyond studying Meditation, Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and even Aerial yoga. In college, I connected with other yogis to co-found a yoga club that provided free and collaborative yoga to all students. I lived in a handful of places – Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Barcelona, New York, Texas – before moving to Alaska, but yoga was a constant throughout, a grounding presence when life changed. After 10 years of practicing yoga and occasionally teaching friends, I decided it was time to be properly trained as a yoga teacher and began a year-long journey with Svia and Lindsey through their yoga immersion and teaching program. While I don’t believe we are ever finished learning, I am excited to share my knowledge of yoga with others. I enjoy helping students find their own unique relationship with yoga to serve their needs on the mat and in their life generally.
