Yoga first entered my life as an unhealthy undergraduate when I enrolled in the first yoga course offered at Wesleyan University in 1998. I began to develop a consistent practice as a social work student at Columbia University in New York City to ground and replenish myself. I continue to be amazed by yoga’s ability to transform all aspects of our lives by cultivating awareness of ourselves and our interactions in the world.
My slow flow teaching style is influenced by the various styles of yoga I have practiced. These include the flowing, breath to movement linkage of Vinyasa, the heart-opening playfulness of Anusara, the therapeutic applications of Yoga Tune Up, and the intelligent sequencing and precise alignment instructions of YogaWorks where I completed the 200 Hour Teacher Training with Paula Lynch and Ann Mosca. I have also studied prenatal yoga with Carrie Parker Gastelu.
I believe yoga is accessible to people of all ages, shapes, sizes and ability levels. In order to strenghten the skills necessary to support this belief, I completed the Level 1 Adaptive Yoga Teacher Training with Matthew Sanford at Mind Body Solutions.
It is a privilege to introduce the myriad benefits of this practice to others as they forge their own journeys on the path of yoga.
