Hi! My name is Hillary. I was born, raised, currently live, and forever more rooted in the wonderfully active and diverse city that is Austin, Texas. Throughout my childhood I was encouraged to try new methods of being creative and active. Taking this motivation I earned an art education degree from Texas State University awhile back. Using the degree, I taught middle school art for five years and got stressed often. Finding and utilizing running and yoga relieved that stress. Public school teaching did not become a permanent thing in my life, but both running and yoga did. Currently I am a full-time ceramic artist who still has the teaching bug; so now I teach yoga and coach running. I am a firm believer that movement is an emotional healer, persistent motivator, entertainment outlet, and life-balancer. My current life mission is to use what I know to help others discover how movement can enhance their lives.
