My Story:

Hi, I’m KO. A proud yoga fanatic and lover of whatever makes a person shine and live authentically with joy, light, and love. My twenties was spent growing out of and making some new self destructive patterns like; feeling unlovable, low confidence, depression, unhealthy lifestyle, and emotionally unhealthy relationships. Seemed like I was doomed to the “live hard, play hard” adult life that many embrace in the city and to bury any wounds yet to heal from my youth.

I found yoga in 2009 at a Bikram studio in Chicago. I sweat a ton and enjoyed finally finding a physical outlet that would relive stress from the fast-paced city life. Tension started to melt off and I enjoyed the confidence, authenticity, and freedom within those walls.

Yoga as it turns out would be my guiding light from that moment on. After an injury in Bikram I found vinyasa/hatha yoga and a mind-blowing amount of growth and self-love started to happen. I had woken up, I became aware of my patterns (physically, mentally, and emotionally) now and it was time to face myself and heal, forgive, move forward, and shine!

I committed to a teacher training at my home studio Chicago School of yoga. If it weren’t for the love, community, guidance, and dedicated teachers there I would have been lost. During my training I gained the strength to pick up the pieces and rebuilt my life according to my truth.

For the past four years I have been all in! I’ve experienced sacrifice, failure, and am challenged to love and give more than I ever thought imaginable. Now, I stand tall, ready to guide, grow, and share all that I have learned and am learning. I do not promise perfection but I will bring a big heart, smiles, and a passion for your health, growth, and well-being in all that I do.

It is my honor and privilege to humbly serve. Go within. Rebalance. Shine On!

Big hugs,
