I teach a free evening class via Zoom every Wednesday from 5:30 – 6:30 CST (6:30 EST, 3:30 PST). You can register here or drop in directly on Zoom here! You can also send me your email (via social, email, or the contact page) if you want to be added to the mailing list and notified when class is coming up every week.
I also teach a virtual Cognitive Vinyasa class at Yoga Now Chicago, every Friday morning from 10:00 – 11:00 AM CST (11:00 EST, 8:00 PST). It’s a vinyasa class with an emphasis on the ways yoga can improve mental health. Each class focuses on cultivating healthy psychological and physiological practices through breath, mind, movement, and body awareness. There’s a lesson at the beginning of every class about your mind, which is always informed by a combination of traditional knowledge and scientific research, allowing you to tap into your highest self from all angles. You can register here!
My passion for yoga is rooted in the connections I’ve uncovered within my mind, body, and spirit through the practice. A nomadic international upbringing instilled a deep-rooted curiosity within me; as my environment changed every few years, I learned to prioritize relationships with loved ones, and asked questions about human motivation and the nature of human experience.
Following a severe knee injury in high school, I found solace in the supportive yoga community. I continued my journey as an Ashtanga student at the Ashtanga Yoga Monterey studio in California. Following my passion for human cognition, I pursued a B.A. & B.Sc. in Cognitive Science at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. During this time, I backpacked around Latin America, where I completed my 200-hour teacher training at Swastha Yoga International in Costa Rica.
I then founded the McGill Yoga Club in order to make yoga accessible for students in my community. Through the club, we organized eight yoga classes a week, mostly in the morning and evening, that were completely free for students to attend. I taught a Spiritual Side of Yoga Class in collaboration with the McGill Office for Religious and Spiritual Life, and Advanced Ashtanga Yoga at the Yellow Door for two years, developing my teaching style and building relationships with my community.
My goal as a teacher is to deepen my students’ connections with their body, mind, and spirit. My teachings emphasize the importance of breath and strong physical and psychological foundations that alignment and create growth in the body and mind.
