Tori is the Manager of the Lincoln Park location of YogaSix. Yoga has been the foundation for a remarkable journey for Tori, one of self-love, deep healing and ultimately, happiness within. After years of personal practice, Tori realized this journey was meant to be shared and made it her mission to guide others in their own personal transformations. In 2011 she traveled to Arizona and earned her 200-Hour Certification. Four years later, she became a Master Reiki Practitioner. In her classes, you can expect to be met where you are with an open invitation to thrive fully. Her teaching style is supportive as she encourages you to reconnect with your own power, unlocking balance in your body and your life. Tori is deeply rooted in nature and loves exploring, traveling and dancing to live music.
Exercise and fitness have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember; my love for physical activity and fitness were instilled in me at a young age. After many years of a variety of fitness routines, I found my true passion through yoga. Yoga allowed me to extend fitness beyond the physical element, allowing me to integrate the body, mind and spirit. Most of my studies were completed in Southeast Asia. Upon returning to America, I began pairing myyoga practice with resistance training. I then started realizing the importance of nutrition not only as fuel for my fitness regime, but also the missing component of my overall well-being. Through yoga, resistance training and nutrition, I have been able to incorporate strength, flexibility and full body functional movements, ultimately achieving overall wellness and balance within the fitness realm.

Yoga has brought her into a world full of discovery, growth, movement, courage and healing; a world full of transformations with never ending possibilities.
