At the prime, awkward age of 7 -envision Little Miss Sunshine vibes, sans glasses- I began dancing and dabbling in a few formats; ballet, jazz, tap, hip-hop, and lyrical. After dancing for 10 years, I tried cheer leading as I wanted to do something that would get me involved at school, the dramatics let me tell ya, but so fun. Throughout college I started to taking a number of fitness classes ranging from spin to pilates to kickboxing.
As fitness was always a healthy outlet for me, aka kept me sane and kind, I began practicing yoga throughout college and just about instantly fell in love with the practice. Specifically, after taking my very first hot yoga class at Corepower Yoga in 2012, I was COMPLETELY hooked. I will never forget that first class and as cliché as it might sound, it changed my life. With a background in dance, yoga simply felt like a natural fit for both my mental and physical health.
I graduated with my BA in Rhetoric and Communications from Dominican University in 2014, I wasn't sure what exactly was up next. I took the plunge to become a certified yoga instructor and received my 200 hour RYT certification in April of 2015, the day before my 24th birthday. In January 2017, I took flight and became a certified Aerial Yoga Instructor. The last three years of teaching have been the most amazing journey, I am forever grateful that I have made a career out of my passion!
I love that I am able to pay forward the never ending benefits that yoga has brought to me as an individual and that I have been given the opportunity to share my passion with the yoga community.
