As a Yoga Teacher and Movement Specialist, I want to help people improve their movement skills and ultimately their quality of life.
I have a straight-forward approach that combines yoga with movement to help clients be strong, restore mobility and feel energized. Instead of the typical fast & furious “workout,” I emphasize mindful and practical strength in movement. My students rave about how strong they feel after working with me.
Unlike yoga teachers who started out as dancers or gymnasts, I began practicing yoga during my awkward high school years. Yoga helped me build strength, confidence, and establish a strong mind-body connection. Since then, yoga and movement have been a strong force in my life.
Why yoga and movement? Many of our body aches and issues are a result of our sedentary lifestyles. Movement is what is missing from our lives so I incorporate various movement modalities to complement my yoga programming.
In addition to teaching group classes, I work one-on-one with clients, teach Continuing Education courses to fitness professionals, host the Yoga & Beyond podcast, and am the co-author of the Exposing Yoga Myths book series.
In my Integrated Yoga and Foundations of Good Movement classes we work to improve our movement skills. We rotate a series of sequences that are designed to counter the negative effects of modern, sedentary living.
I teach my Integrated Yoga method at Yo Yoga NYC and my new class Foundations of Movement at various locations.
