14 years ago I came to a point in my life where I needed something for me, for my body and for my mind. I had tried a variety of exercise programs but nothing gave me the satisfaction that I was looking for, until I stumbled upon a Park District yoga class. As a professional dietitian caring for seniors with dementia and memory loss, my days were challenging yet yoga created a balance.
I developed my foundations in Anusara inspired Vinyasa Flow. I have also had extensive studies in the practice of Iyengar and therapeutic yoga. I received my 200 hour RYT Certification from my mentor, Silvia Mordini, then received a certification in Prenatal Yoga and later completed my Personal Trainer Certification through the AFAA.
I believe the practice of Yoga enhances and improves the quality of our lives. When our lives become more demanding, it is essential that we take time to nurture our minds and heal our bodies. I feel privileged to share the physical and mental benefits of Yoga with individuals from all walks of life.
