She is skilled at offering modifications for all body types, and levels of practice, and encourages her students to meet themselves (without judgement) where they are today – whether tired, tight and achy or energized and open.

Skye began practicing yoga in 2018 when health issues called her to holistic healing. What began as a primarily at-home practice soon became rooted in community when she completed her 200hr teacher training in 2021 and learned to love teaching (and attending) studio classes. Skye values slow sequences that nourish body, mind and spirit, with an emphasis on mindfulness and breath as a tool for expansion.
Skye believes the trilogy of breathwork, movement, and meditation to be true medicine, and that within the ritual of yoga there is potential to find
immense freedom. In her day-to-day life, she works remotely as a fashion
copywriter. Outside of the studio, you can find her gardening, walking her cat, and dreaming up moon rituals!
