Zoe Nitsun Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow Teacher
Exp: 11 Years

After 15 yrs of competitive running, I discovered yoga in 1993 and began practicing to DVDs before heading off to a job in the advertising industry. As yoga studios began to open in Chicago, I started taking classes and in 2002, after the birth of my first child, I enrolled in Rod Stryker's Teacher Training. I have been practicing daily ever since.

I have had the unique privilege of studying with Paul Weitz, Baron Baptiste, Rolf Gates, Paul Grilley, and Tim Miller, and I met my teacher, David Swenson, in 2006. After meeting David, I have practiced Ashtanga Yoga faithfully, and I completed David Swenson's Ashtanga Teacher Training.

Approaching the practice with compassion and humor have become valuable tools for me both on and off the mat. I am honored to teach Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa Flow and Niyama Hot Yoga. Expect lots of challenge in each class with plenty of room to create your own level of practice.

I love to break down the more complex poses into attainable pieces, and I encourage you never to take yourself too seriously and to practice with a generous spirit. As David taught me, I believe a yogi is someone who leaves the world a little better than how he or she found it. I have a fabulous husband and three wonderful kids who to help me practice daily.
