I have been practicing yoga since I was a teenager and am a RYT 200. I studied with Kim Swartz at the Temple of Kriya Yoga in Chicago, IL. I organized the Yoga Association of Michiana to foster a flourishing yoga community and have facilitated Yoga on the Green at Howard Park in the Summer and YA Yoga the rest of the year which is yoga by donation where yoga teachers volunteer their time as am outreach to the community. I also instruct classes as Peace and Happiness Yoga at 121 S. Niles in South Bend at the Dancehipology Studio weekends at 8:30 AM. I have a BA in Sociology, MS in Not for Profit Administration, and a PhD in Not for Profit Management.
