ACE discovered her love of yoga in the summer of 2006, while living in Chicago, IL. Coming from a fast-paced athletic background, she struggled with yoga initially, because it forced her to mentally slow down. Overtime, ACE began to understand the practice more intimately as she started to witness profound personal growth.

In 2011, ACE attended a yoga retreat in Ojai, CA, led by Jennifer Pastiloff, who soon became a mentor and dear friend. While participating in the retreat, ACE was introduced to the concept of manifestation and it became a pronounced force in her life. Through the practice of yoga, ACE realized an intense passion for people. It encouraged ACE to follow her dreams, so she could empower others to do the same. In the spring of 2016, ACE decided to turn passion into purpose by completing a 200-hour Power Yoga Teacher Training at CorePower Yoga in Sherman Oaks, CA. She also completed the 5-week Extensions program and since then has been teaching Yoga throughout Southern California.

Fully equipped with the education to mirror her passion for the practice, ACE is ready to share her gift of healing and mindfulness with the world. She currently resides in North Hollywood, CA with her love Andre and their cat, Sir Reggie.

ACE instructs the following:
  • Hot Yin Yoga
  • Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues of the chest, shoulders, hips, pelvis, and lower spine, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness through long held postures with the use of props. Hot Yin Yoga compliments a more active (Yang) practice because it improves flexibility, ease and balance. Heated to 100 degrees.

  • Yin and Sound Bath
  • This class will be accompanied with authentic Burmese and Chinese gongs by percussionist, Jeffrey Grant that work tremendously well for yin yoga. Yin Yoga is a restorative class designed to release tension and calm the nervous system. With the gentle support of props, students will passively stretch and energize the body’s deep connective tissue. Enjoy the therapeutic benefits of deep relaxation in a heated room of 95-100 degrees.
