Devon was born in Cincinnati, OH where she first fell in love with ballet at six years old. She spent much of her childhood in and out of ballet classes, eventually studying ballet at a performing arts high school and at the collegiate. She graduated from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music in May of 2016, that fall she set out west to explore dancing in Los Angeles. While in LA, Devon's interest in yoga has continually blossomed since her arrival. As a dancer, she was eager to use yoga to keep her body in top athletic shape, but has learned that yoga provides so much more.Yoga was full of energy, with ability to calm, heal, inspire, motivate, and to break any perceived limitations or usual ideas of yourself. Wanting to share this yoga with everyone is what inspired her to take teacher trainings at Hot8Yoga.While honoring the traditional teachings of yoga, Devon’s style is equal parts fun and hard work while creating a safe space for you to explore your own personal yoga practice. See you in class!
