      I love to explore how the mind, body, and spirit interconnect. I’ve been practicing yoga since 2008, and teaching yoga since 2012. I developed my yoga therapy with Gabriel Halpern serving as an apprentice at his Yoga Circle. Additional yoga teacher training was from highly esteemed Moksha Yoga Center (200 HR), Prenatal Yoga with Amala School of Prenatal Yoga, Yoga for Kids and Families through Global Family Yoga, and Yoga for Cancer Survivors with Dr. Ingrid Yang. I co-founded YogaCare and Socially Engaged Yoga Network to spread the health benefits of yoga. I’m now studying functional nutrition with Andrea Nakayama. Variety is the spice of life for me. Raising two children and two dogs, teaching yoga and meditation, training for a sprint triathlon and half marathon, enjoying food, arts, and nature, I constantly seek ways to integrate peace and balance within while juggling life and being present in the moment. There’s so much to love about being a Flexologist at StretchLab. I enjoy connecting with a variety of personalities, lifestyles, and physiques. I love to sprinkle in nuggets of yoga wisdom, integrate yoga alignment and breathing techniques within the StretchLab protocol. Sharing moments of peace, relief, and laughter while stretching my clients brings me much joy. Let’s explore how I can help you achieve your goals through increased flexibility!

      I'm a Flexologist here at StretchLab and also a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant in Illinois. I studied at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale where I received a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science. While attending SIUC I worked as a personal trainer for people with disabilities. I've spent most of my time over the past few years studying various topics from health and wellness to human anatomy and have grown a passion to use my education and experience to help others live a better life. Some of my passions outside of work are baseball, video games, and movies. I'm a big movie buff, especially with Marvel and DC, and love going to the movie theater. I played baseball pretty much my whole life up until the middle of college and it has become a big part of my life. I'm a huge Cubs fan and to me playoff baseball is the best time of the year (behind Christmas of course). I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your goals!

      Hi! Several years ago, I became interested in fitness and wanted to expand my knowledge, so I became a certified personal trainer through NASM. Currently, I am enrolled in College of DuPage’s Physical Therapist Assistant Program. At StretchLab, I’m excited to have the opportunity to educate and help others enjoy all the benefits of stretching. I love learning and sharing anything associated with health and wellness. Some of my other interests include paragliding, hiking, gymnastics, and exercise. In order to help prevent injuries, feel good, and partake in all these activities I make time balance my body by regularly stretching. I ensure that incorporating stretching into your daily routine will improve your quality of movement, and in turn, life. In this fast-paced life it is important to make the time for self-care. I look forward to welcoming you to StretchLab and helping you reach your goals.

      At 19 I realized I was out of shape and needed to make a change in my life. A decade later that decision has grown into a passion and career in fitness! I attended Northern Illinois University and majored in Kinesiology. I worked as a personal trainer for 1.5 years and worked in gyms for 2.5 years. My favorite fitness hobbies include taking my puppy for runs and weightlifting in the gym. My favorite thing about being a trainer is seeing the growth and progression of my clients. Making exercise a regular part of my day was life changing for me, and my goal is to help my clients make a difference in their lives as well. When a client tells me that they’re seeing changes in their daily life, feeling better, and living a better life, it reminds me why I got involved in the field of fitness. I'm looking forward to getting to know you and helping you move toward your flexibility goals and get to a better tomorrow!

      I graduated from Northern Illinois University in December of 2021 with a Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences with a Pre-Physical Therapy Emphasis. Health and Fitness has always been a huge part of my life – I grew up playing baseball, football, and track, then played club rugby at NIU. The immense benefits of exercise led me to pursue a career in physical therapy and am currently applying to PT school. I also hold a personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), and work as a physical therapy technician which I bring an array of experiences ranging from injury prevention, corrective exercise, rehabilitation, and strength/weight training. Outside of Stretchlab, I enjoy being outdoors (camping, hiking, canoeing), watching sports (Go Cubs!), working out, and spending time with friends and family. I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals!

      Flexologist
      Hi, I'm Sarika! I'm a Flexologist here at StretchLab and have also been a Physical Therapist (PT) specializing in Orthopedics and Women's Health since 2002. My career in Physical Therapy has been extremely rewarding, as I have always been enthusiastic to help people of all ages heal and recover from injuries/conditions related to accidents, work, sports and/or other hobbies, postural dysfunction, etc., and assisted stretching has always been a fundamental component of my repertoire as a PT. In 2020, after managing a privately owned Physical Therapy clinic in California's Bay Area for nearly ten years, I returned to my Chicagoland roots during the Pandemic. At this time, when searching for methods to achieve my own optimal physical, mental and emotional health, I discovered my passion for Restorative Yoga, a meditative form of Yoga that focuses heavily on breath work and passive stretching. Subsequently, I strive to combine my own experiences, education and expertise to help others from all backgrounds reach their health, fitness and wellness goals and reduce their risk of injury during activities of daily living, integrating body awareness and mindfulness while improving posture, flexibility and joint mobility. StretchLab is the ideal place to do this! Outside of StretchLab, I spend my free time connecting with music, losing myself in books, staying active in various ways, enjoying the company of family and friends, and doing pretty much anything with my husband and two children. I'm looking forward to working with you, and whether you're looking for a meditative stretch or one that's going to push you to your limits (quite literally!), I assure you that your mind, body, soul and spirit will thank you!
