Abigail found yoga over a decade ago while completing her undergraduate degree at DePaul University. At first, she used the practice as a distraction from the challenges of daily life, however, as she moved deeper, studied with more teachers, and developed a personal practice, she discovered that yoga teaches the art of attention and self-healing. She believes everyone is capable of love, healing, and tapping into the wisdom of their highest self -- thus she believes everyone can practice yoga.

Abigail received her 200-hour yoga teacher certification from Moksha Yoga Center. She specializes in prenatal and postpartum yoga having trained through the Amala School of Prenatal Yoga, and currently volunteers as a Doula with Chicago Volunteer Doulas. She is also influenced by her studies with Gabriel Halpern and is passionate about the therapeutic application of yoga.

Abigail feels deeply indebted to the many teachers who have influenced her life and her practice on and off the mat. These days her life and yoga practice is most influenced by her time spent in nature, her mother who started her yoga journey at the age of sixty, her endless stacks of books at her bedside, making art, singing in the shower, working with children in local schools, and her growing tribe of beautiful friends in Chicago and beyond.
