I am grateful to find myself as a teacher and educator of one of my greatest passions!   Forever and simply a student at heart, teaching is an extensive part of my own spiritual learning.

On my mat, I am the most honest and true version of myself and I am continually seeking, questioning, exploring and unfolding through my “own” practice of asana, pranayama, meditation and the energetic more subtle body. 

I offer a strong vinyasa class that is grounded in the physical, yet supports the powerful connection between the mind and body as a deeper tool to self-awareness and inner-strength.  Expect clear and directive instructions while creatively flowing through a dynamic series of poses, challenging physical awareness, stamina, flexibility and concentration.  The mindset is themed and all classes are set to thoughtfully selected music. 

With a strong passion to teach, I reinforce to students of all levels that yoga is a step-by-step approach; in Sanskrit the term is vinyasa krama.  When we work in this way, we meet the body where it is and are ready for the next step; the ultimate experience is one of ease and is never forced.  My goal is for students to connect to their own power and potential, walking away feeling lighter, creative and inspired. 

When we dedicate ourselves to “the practice,” we develop greater insights to the collective wisdom of the yoga philosophy.

I am a certified E-RYT500 yoga teacher and teacher trainer.  I am a native New Yorker living in Brooklyn, NY. I teach a full-time class schedule, including corporate and private clients + lead workshops and international destination wellness retreats.
