Student / Modo Teacher

Why do you love the Modo community?

At Modo everyday is a new experience. The instructors, students, and class varieties all bring me a new exciting and fun experience every time I walk through the door.

Why do you teach yoga?

I started my teacher training with no intention of teaching. I wanted to learn and strength my own practice. As I began teaching I found it to be exactly what I needed – bringing the experiences and parts of yoga which have impacted my life so greatly to others.

What yoga certifications do you have?

200 hour RYT (Vinyasa)
200 E-RYT
500 hour RYT Modo yoga (hatha)
100 hour Modo flow (Vinyasa)
Continuing education in yin yoga (30+hours)
Group fitness training

If you were an animal, what would it be?


You have one day completely to yourself in Columbus.  What do you do?

Yoga, spa day, playtime with my cats, sleep.

What’s your favorite yoga pose and why?

This changes often but currently pyramid pose. I’m loving the back of leg stretch and adding blocks or a twist gives it such variety.

You can only eat at one Columbus restaurant for the rest of your life.  What is it?
