My Yoga Journey
I found yoga, or rather yoga found me, in New York City in 1998. In NYC I was taught and influenced by many different teachers and styles of yoga. I continued to practice yoga while working in the fashion industry and then eventually moving to Philadelphia and Princeton, NJ. In 2015, I moved to the Midwest and it was here that I was introduced to The Chicago Yoga Center, owned and operated by Suddha Weixler. I obtained my 200-hr yoga teacher certificate under the guidance of Suddha. I went on to complete a children’s yoga teacher training with Om Slice Kids Yoga and a Restorative Yoga training with Leann Carey at Moksha Yoga Center, Chicago.
I have completed the 300-hr Advanced Yoga Therapy training program with Surya Chandra Healing Yoga School. Under the tutelage of J.J. Gormley and Laura Jane Mellencamp, I earned a yoga teacher certificate in the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya and T.K.V Desikachar. Currently, I am in the 3rd year of studying Yoga Therapy as it was taught by T.K.V. Desikachar. Most recently, I have studied Yoga Nidra with Jennifer Reis and I have completed the Divine Sleep® Yoga Nidra teacher training. I am also currently studying prenatal yoga and I am working towards certification as a Postpartum Doula, a certification that is recognized by DONA International.
