Irene's love for yoga is contagious. She began practicing in 2012 and immediately knew she had found her path. When she did her first 200 hour teacher training she did not intend to teach right away, but she soon realized that sharing yoga with others was her purpose.

As a lover of movement, Irene is passionate about her practice. The first few years of her practice were dedicated to Ashtanga and Rocket, but lately Irene prefers a blend of Hatha and Vinyasa yoga. Irene’s curiosity has also taken her off the mat, and has led her to study with hand balancers, circus performers, and contortionists to expand her own knowledge and explore the capabilities of her body.

After experiencing a life changing wrist injury Irene has redefined her yoga practice in many ways, placing more emphasis on a strong foundation and finding gratitude for her body with or without advanced asana. She still enjoys intense practice but has learned to value meditation and pranayama as powerful tools of self reflection, and focuses on sharing this part of her journey with her students.
