I practice in Palatine at Himalayan Center, offering Thai massage sessions on Wednesdays (Call 630-770-2770 for an appointment).
I believe that yoga is not a competitive sport. Yoga has been an inward journey of expanding awareness, personal growth, and ever increasing well-being. My posture, breathing and health have improved, as well as my attitude and outlook on life. I continue to benefit from my daily yoga and meditation practice.

Where you were trained: Himalayan Yoga and Meditation Center, Palatine, IL (RYT 200 hours)
Graduated: October, 2011
Teaching yoga: My teaching is gentle and authentic, allowing my students to experience the beauty of slowing down, inner body awareness, and being in the present moment.
How yoga changed your life: My yoga journey began 8 years ago. From the first time I stepped on the mat, I knew I was home within me. Practicing yoga was the first time I had felt at peace within myself. For me, yoga is about giving myself permission to slow down, bring my attention inward, and to be present in my life on and off the yoga mat.

My 13 year yoga journey has revealed many benefits. What balance yoga has taught me is my inspiration to teach others. My Yoga path brought me to HYMC where I received my 200 hour teacher certification and now I am working towards my 500 hour certification. Iʼm so grateful to combine my knowledge from working full time at a localhealth food store and being a Reiki master teacher with my Yoga teaching. I feel that it allows me to come full circle in creating a holistic atmosphere.
