TUESDAY beginner/gentle yoga: 12-1pm


My journey with yoga began during my Sophomore year in college. Fast forward many years and I still find reward through constant practice.

The choice to share my passion and studies happened in 2015. I had taught elementary academics before my children were born and was looking to share knowledge in a different format. Yoga was my passion outside of my family, one that enhanced all other aspects of life. I immersed myself in various trainings and time spent with mentors. I fell in love with teaching styles ranging in Hatha to SUP yoga and enjoy taking time to build mindful sequences.

After moving back to Chicago this past summer, I was blessed to find Shiva Shack and began working under Rich’s guidance and encouragement. I feel safe in this sacred space to practice with confidence and honored to teach fellow students of this beautiful community.
