About The Teacher


My sweaty pursuits: I haven been an athlete most of my life and know the importance of exercise as a part of a well rounded, healthy lifestyle. I graduated from Yoga Teacher Training in the fall of 2008 and have been teaching ever since. My love for yoga began with Bikram Yoga, a run injury got me me into the studio in 2000 and I never wanted to leave. That love of yoga piqued my curiosity about teaching. I have taught at several studios in Minneapolis including: The Firm, CorePower, Sigh Yoga, Solidcore, and most recently ALTR. I love to teach fun, challenging, loud, and energetic classes.

Boss Lady: I spent 9.7 years working at lululemon where I learned, grew, and expanded. This year I am looking to start a business or two of my own and I can’t wait!!! I am currently taking time to pursue some of my many passions: interior design, teaching, podcasts, cooking, reading, flying my drone, travel, learning a few new crafts (punch needle work) and setting off on some new adventures with my family and friends. It’s going to be an epic new chapter and I can’t wait to live my best life in an entirely new way #hellyes

Personally Speaking: In my personal time I like to run, walk, cycle, sweat at ALTR and try any new class or fitness trend + listen to podcasts, read + spend time with my family. I have a daughter, Eve, she is 20 and two French Bulldogs: Georgie and Charlotte #theroyals I love and live with THE Jim Stathis, my husband, you may have met him:)

Wanderlust: When I am not doing the above, I love to travel + find new adventure. This year you can find me planning our next big trip (Africa), reading, sweating or drinking a large glass of wine #balance.
