Student / Modo Teacher / Studio Manager

Why do you love the Modo community?

Modo feels like my home away from home. The energy is warm, inviting and contagious. When I first started practicing at Modo in 2017 I was hooked after my first class and came every day for 33 days in a row. I fell in love with the practice, the community, and the energy.

Why do you teach yoga?

To spread the yoga love on and off the mat!

What yoga certifications do you have?

Modo Level 1 – 500hr and Group Fitness Instructor Certification from the American Council on Exercise.

If you were an animal, what would it be?

I would be a bird. Who doesn’t want to fly?!?

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

(Let’s assume this is a Saturday or Sunday) I would head to Modo for a sweaty yoga class first thing in the morning. After yoga I would head home to drink a hot cup of coffee, blast some tunes and take my time getting ready. I would then walk to meet friends and/or family at a local restaurant for brunch, then onto a metro park for a hike to get lost in the woods. To end the day we would head back home for some backyard grilling, yard games, a fire, tunes, and cocktails with friends. Who wants to join me?

What’s your favorite yoga pose and why?

My favorite yoga pose is Warrior II. I feel strong, confident, and challenged at the same time. In this pose I am always reminded to deepen my breath as I sink deeper into the pose.

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

I love North Star! I crave that Buddha Bowl!
