My Teaching Style

I’ve been teaching since 2007.  I love mixing various yoga methodologies and styles to best honor my student’s needs.  Knowledge, experience, intuition and creativity guide and shape the course of each yoga session.  Seeking to help folks find an expression of the poses that are comfortable, safe, and joyful as opposed to perfect looking,  I emphasize breath, alignment, and breath-linked cuing.  I am always checking in with my students, giving hands-on assists and demonstrating.  Laughter is encouraged!

My yoga certification under Shiva Rea‘s graceful guidance focused on the movement and flow of energy with deep connection to the traditional aspects of yoga.  I am also influenced by the strengthening and personal evolution philosophy found in Ana Forrest’s yoga school of modern sensibility, which I studied extensively under senior Forrest yoga teachers, Talya Ring and Steve Emmerman.  After training in aerial fabric (silks or tissue) at Aloft in Chicago, aerial yoga became a natural extension.  Mentors here include Tracy Von Kaenal, Brent Holten, and Air.

Related Practices: Zen Meditation, Psychic Meditation, Faerie Faith, Pranayama, and Energy Healing.  These experiences and elements merge to create classes that are a themed journey, delving into the body, mind, and psyche.

Trainings: 200 Hour Certification; Aerial Yoga Certification; 10 hour Prenatal Yoga Training; Faerie Faith; Zen Meditation; Psychic Meditation; Energy Healing & Faerie Card Reading
