I am a certified 200 RYT, I have also received specialized trainings in prenatal yoga, chair yoga, and yin yoga.

I was first introduced to yoga when I was 15. I continued doing yoga on and off throughout college, while completing my Bachelors degree in social work. It wasn’t until I moved to Florida from Chicago that my passion for teaching yoga really began to develop. While living in Florida, I have worked with several social services non-profit organizations. Through these experiences, I was exposed to several different populations throughout North Florida. I found that I was most passionate about working with underserved women and teenage girls. I wanted a tool that would allow me empower and support  this population. This lead me in deciding to get my certification as a yoga instructor and quickly following that I began teach for Yoga 4 Change. Yoga 4 Change has given me the opportunity to connect with Jacksonville ‘at-need’ populations and share yoga as a tool.
