Abby's love for movement began in the world of dance, where she dedicated a decade to competition and later, coaching. When she transitioned away from dance, yoga became her medium, allowing her to continue fostering her love for expressive athletic movement. She enjoyed a casual practice for 7 years, but in 2020, her love for yoga and dedication to the practice deepened profoundly.
In the summer of 2020, Abby began using yoga to rehabilitate serious injuries in the wake of an abusive relationship. Through the process, she found that the more consistent practice had a tremendously positive impact on her mental health as well. As a nearly life-long sufferer of depression, PTSD, and anxiety, the healing impact of yoga led her to develop a deep love for the practice and eventually, kindled a desire to share the therapeutic power of yoga with others.
Motivated by the desire to share the transformative power of yoga, Abby earned her RYT 200 Certification in the spring of 2022. She specializes in Vinyasa and Bhakti but also enjoys teaching Restorative yoga. Looking ahead, Abby aspires to collaborate with fellow yoga instructors and mental health professionals to craft workshops dedicated to assisting trauma survivors with PTSD, focusing on nervous system regulation, healthy coping strategies, self-acceptance, and self-love.
"Since becoming a yoga teacher, I've often heard from people: “I tried yoga; it was too hard; and I don't think it’s for me.” Each time, I think we in the yoga community could've shown them differently. Yoga is truly for everyone, from the young athlete to the 80-year-old grandma, and everyone in between. Whether you're dealing with carpal tunnel from manual work or backaches from desk jobs, yoga offers profound healing benefits that go far beyond just physical relief. Yoga teaches us to reconnect with, understand, and nurture our body and mind, paving the way for a life with less pain and greater peace. I'm here to guide and support you on your yoga journey, wherever you're starting, at whatever pace you choose, and wherever you wish to go. I'm so honored to be your companion on this journey and so happy to welcome you into the yoga community!"
