“Working for Campus Rec as a group fitness instructor has been a huge highlight of my Carolina experience. I was pretty new to the yoga teacher world when I joined the Campus Rec team, but the belief that the crew had in me pushed me out of my comfort zone in teaching and brought me closer to my own yoga practice. They are always willing to work with me on new class ideas and make sure I’m reaching as many students as possible! My favorite part about teaching yoga for Carolina is hands down the students. Whether they are regulars or newbies to my classes, the community is so uplifting, open, and ready to move with me. They allow me to be as creative as I want, because I know I have their support! After graduation, my goal is to keep spreading the knowledge and practice of yoga to various athletic communities. One day, I hope to work as a Strength & Conditioning coach for athletes of all abilities!”

FUN FACT: I was born in Zurich, Switzerland!
