Community Programs Lead & Yoga Instructor
I am a youth worker, yoga teacher, and a yoga therapist in training. My experience teaching classes in studios, community, juvenile detention, and recovery centers developed my emerging interest in gentle self-inquiry and using the body to explore our emotions. I believe in making yoga and mindfulness accessible to everyone regardless of race, ability, or experience.
I am trained in trauma-informed and healing-centered mindfulness practices. I have 10 years of direct service experience working with historically marginalized communities and youth in Chicago. I believe that looking within is a necessary first step in order for us to heal collectively.
