Piper comes to yoga organically from a background in theatre, music, and dance. Having spent a huge part of her childhood in Vaganova Russian ballet class, she brings a strong sense of discipline, posture, and alignment to the practice of yoga. It's not often that one is given the opportunity to turn a passion into a livelihood, and she feels fortunate to have done that a few times in her life, one of them being this awesome journey with yoga.
Piper has truly found her dharma in managing yoga studios, after leaving her ten year career as a Marketing Executive to teach and be of service to the yoga community. Her extensive experience working in the Chicago yoga and fitness community, along with her business background and sixth sense for hiring and recruiting the best make her a uniquely ideal candidate for handling the direction and operational vision for Zen Yoga Garage. Piper is a Yoga Alliance certified Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher with 200 hour Hot Yoga Teacher Training, 100 hour Power Yoga Teacher Training, Yoga Sculpt Teacher Training, and Kids Yoga Teacher Training all under her belt.
