I began practicing yoga in 2007. I had a friend who opened yoga studio in Naperville and started taking classes. Some were group classes, some were private, and one on one sessions. I enjoyed them all. In 2009 I attended my first “hot yoga” class. I really liked the warmth with the yoga asanas. Being a hairstylist all my professional career, yoga helped me deal with the aches and pains that come with the profession.

In 2016 I enrolled at Prairie Yoga to earn my 200 hour teachers certification.

Yoga is a great way to stay in tune with your body and mind. I love spending time on the mat figuring out what I need to work on to center myself, to feel ready to take on the day. I enjoy many other physical activities, yoga practice helps me keep moving. I like to help others unlock their body and mind in my teaching practice.

Everybody comes in different shapes and sizes. My classes will work on improving flexibility, strength, range of motion and calming the mind.

One world, one love, one race. Let’s get together and feel alright.

Meet Inga


To me, yoga is a way of living. It is not only on the mat that I make choices what to teach or practice, but also in the outside world by choosing how to respond in certain situations and how to stay true to myself no matter what.
Like many of us, I came to practice yoga years ago as physical exercise. I would leave the class before the practice of breathing and meditation; I felt that asana was all I needed. It took time for me to realize that the actual yoga starts where pranayama – breath regulation – and meditation begins, asana being only preparation.

Another lesson I learned while teaching yoga is that having a very flexible body isn’t an advantage of practicing asana. There is a higher degree to injure yourself, and you need to work harder on strengthening your muscles to support stability. That’s why, if someone tells me: “I can’t do yoga, I’m very inflexible.” my answer is: “You are made for it! That’s why you come to yoga – to get more flexible in your body and your mind.”


Five plus years of teaching yoga has allowed me to find my own style and set my values. I prefer not to put people into proficiency levels, believing that no one can assess the level of one’s meditation practice. Everyone is welcome to join; I love diversity.


My motto is:

“We don’t need more speed, what we need is quality”

I have attended classes that were described as ‘yoga’ and were so fast I could barely catch my breath. I stand behind the principle of less being more.

I like teaching sequences where there is an initial and final relaxation with a more dynamic flow in between; we all need to gather and center first before we are ready to move mindfully. There is no specific time when pranayama and meditation are practiced; instead, they are weaved throughout the entire session. I encourage people to close their eyes frequently, so the practice becomes a meditative experience throughout with a focus on observing their bodies, thoughts, and emotions. As someone with a degree in clinical psychology, I strive to motivate everyone to explore and get a deeper understanding of who they really are. We tend to look outside while all the answers lay within.

Yoga is the way to get our questions answered.

Currently, I also teach workshop series at the Lithuanian World center Museum of Art, chair yoga at St. Francis of Assisi Residence, a semi private early morning session and lead silent Mindful Weekend retreats for Women in Beverly Shores, IN.

Meet Meg’n


Meg’n had a love-hate relationship with yoga when she first began taking classes, and then fell hard when she was undergoing a tough period in her life. She needed something to sink her teeth into that was not harmful. She explored many different styles, and didn’t think twice when Moksha yoga (Chicago) had a teacher training program in Naperville which Meg’n completed in 2007.

Since then, she has taught toddlers, kids, teens, chair yoga, has dabbled in Iyanger, Forest and Hot Yoga. It was Vinyasa yoga and it’s fluidity, beauty and meditative qualities of this practice that captured her heart and soul. Meg’n enjoys creative sequencing and eclectic music.

She finds immense joy, satisfaction and inspiration in seeing students discover their own personal yoga journey and hopes to nurture and encourage them along their path.

During her free time, Meg’n works as a stylist at several local boutiques, relishes traveling (and occasionally destination teaching) is an avid foodie, book and animal lover.
