My first yoga experience was with an Eric Schiffmann and Ally McGraw DVD and I have been hooked ever since! My regular yoga practice helped me manage long-term PTSD and the lingering anxiety associated with it. I have practiced several different styles of yoga, including Kripalu and Hot Yoga 26, but lean towards a more mindful, alignment based Vinyasa practice.
I completed the Kids Yoga Training in 2009, at Yoga Haven and am a graduate of the Quest Yoga Arts training program, where I studied under Wendy Hagen, ERYT 500 hour and Laura Jensen, ERYT 200 hour. More recently I completed Restorative Teacher Training under Cyndi Lee through Yoga International.
I am recently retired from Corporate America, where I first introduced yoga to my fellow colleagues, shortly after completing my training. I continue to teach and advocate for wellness in the workplace. It is important for employees to take regular breaks, while finding ways to reduce stress and anxiety levels. I believe it is equally important for their employer to support that process and provide those opportunities. Since yoga helps to increase productivity and promote a healthy work/life balance, this is a “win/win” for everyone! Over the last five years, I have introduced yoga to various youth organizations and donated time to teach at several schools. Beginning in the 2019/2020 school year, I was contracted to work with the Bedford Central Elementary School system to help teachers bring yoga into their classrooms. Before COVID 19, I was also teaching kids yoga at a local parochial school. Since the pandemic, we have pivoted our practice and teach several private, corporate and small group classes virtually via Zoom.
I am currently completing my studies in health, life and wellness coaching and am very excited to integrate this work into our practice.
My mission is to create a safe and friendly community where everyone feels free to explore the healing power of yoga and feeling comfortable in your own skin (no matter what your number is on the scale). I invite you to explore you can reach new levels of personal and spiritual development; while finding your own state of balance, inner peace, joy and light.
