What brought you to yoga?
A few years back, when I first moved to a new city, I stumbled upon a hot yoga class. Even though I was a bit nervous at first and felt like escaping from the room, I pushed myself to give it a shot. Over time, it helped me build a healthier body brought balance to my mind and a sense of belonging.
What is your approach to teaching?
My teaching approach centers around meeting individuals on their unique journeys in their practice, creating a space for everyone. I am passionate about crafting a flow with different options that encourage people to attune to their bodies, fostering self-trust. Together, we embrace challenges, ensuring that everyone leaves the class feeling more empowered than when they entered. This approach leads to a practice harmonizing the body, mind, and soul.
Why did you choose to teach at 5KY?
Their belief that yoga is for everyone really resonates with me. There was a time when I felt lost, navigating life in a foreign land, and later stepping into the role of a first-time mother. Yoga became an unending source of support and strength for me. I hope that everyone who needs it can feel this power too.
What makes your soul sing?
Food and coffee! Chicago's diverse international cuisines and countless coffee shops are something I'm truly grateful for.
