Fiona first found Ashtanga yoga at her local gym while she was in high school, and maintained a consistent individual practice as she went on to complete degrees in Opera and Piano at Syracuse University. Vinyasa classes became her sanity while she worked in a hectic marketing agency for a few years, and evolved into a passion that led her to pursue her 200 hour teacher training at Starseed. Soon after she began teaching, she decided to leave her full-time job in order to spend several months in southern India completing her 300 hour Advanced Ashtanga teacher training. Although she can still sometimes be found teaching more gentle vinyasa classes, her heart is in the vigorous and disciplined Ashtanga practice. Living by the philosophy of "helping people to help themselves," Fiona teaches challenging yet meditative classes with emphasis on alignment, pranayama, and living a yogic lifestyle. But when she's not on the mat, you can bet she's in a faraway land making new friends and finding adventure!
