Hello! My name is Avery, and I am a senior working on a bachelor's degree in psychology.

I received my RYS-200 from Seek Yoga Studio here in Laramie in May of 2023. I am looking forward to creating balanced practice for all levels of students with the involvement of breathwork and movement. My goal is to provide a teaching environment that is inclusive for everyone while also helping students develop their strength, flexibility, and inner rest. Some other activities I find immense joy in include film photography, running, climbing, biking, and reading. Can’t wait to see you in class!
