Yoga has held a very special place in Colleen’s heart ever since she experienced her first sun salutation sophomore year in college. She studied ballet for eleven years and was intrigued by the mixture of flexibility, grace, strength and stillness within yoga. After graduating from Northwestern University, Colleen studied yoga sporadically while diving into the world of endurance running. She has run several marathons and in 2011, Colleen ran from St. Louis to New York City to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. Colleen’s love for yoga blossomed in 2013 when she started taking classes more regularly. In January 2014, Colleen completed a 30-day class challenge, where she noticed a significant difference in her day-to-day happiness. Suddenly, she was able to use yoga, pranayama and meditation to lower her stress, maintain perspective and instill a true sense of peace and balance in her life. This transformation was so powerful that it inspired her to become a yoga teacher. In addition to being a certified Yoga Alliance Instructor, Colleen is a certified Primary Group Exercise Instructor (Athletics and Fitness Association of America), Personal Trainer (National Academy of Sports Medicine), Zumba® Instructor and Ballroom Dance Instructor. Colleen is so happy to share the joy and clarity that yoga has brought to her life with others.
