Becoming a mom in 2006 shifted her career focus, so Aryn combined motherhood, a love of Ashtanga yoga, and diverse classroom experience to begin teaching yoga to children. She founded her business: Aryn’s Family Yoga and expanded her yoga teaching to adults, families and play groups, always adapting to her clients’ needs.
Suffering a severe spinal injury in a car accident, she has been drawn most to the healing therapy components of yoga and tries to apply these principals to her students. Aryn completed her 200 Hour Yoga Certification in Ashtanga Vinyasa through Infinite Yoga’s Teacher Training program, her 100 hour Hot Mama Buddha Baby Pre & Postnatal Training with Jolie Cash and 100 Hour Yin Yoga and Reiki Training with Shawna Schenk.
