Gracie started practicing yoga when she was 10 and quickly became hooked. She loves learning from all of the teachers at Yoga Bliss and has attended workshops with Amy Ippoliti. She became interested in social justice at a young age as a result of service projects with her family in Kenya and Cambodia, and with her school in Nicaragua. She became very passionate about human trafficking at an Ignation Teach-in in Washington DC in 2017. This passion found a perfect outlet when the opportunity arose for her to teach teen yoga classes for donations to RAHAB, a local organization that serves adults and minors rescued from the sex trade. Gracie attends Walsh Jesuit High School where she is active in student government and plays varsity field hockey.
