Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit my site.   My intention as a yoga therapist is to help you live better in your body by using the ancient practice of yoga. My teaching approach is lighthearted, inspiring and inclusive for all ages and levels. I draw my knowledge from several different styles of yoga such as Iyengar, the yoga of Desikachar, corrective exercise and somatic movements to meet the daily changing needs of my students. I teach with a strong focus on safe alignment and breath awareness and I try to provide you with the tools you need so you can recognize and release painful habit causing patterns and begin to heal yourself.  You will be encouraged to develop a deeper connection to your body and your breath. My intention is you leave the class or private session experience not only feeling better than when you started, but with a greater sense of grace and ease in your body, mind and soul.  

My experience and credentials includes 20+ years of dance, 4 years of teaching elementary education, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT Certified Yoga Therapist, Licensed Level 1 Yoga Tune Up® Teacher, Urban Zen Therapist, Certifed YogaWorks Instructor/Teacher Trainer and Mentor, Advanced Level Reiki Practitioner and Reconnective Energy and currently studying Hanna Somatics.

Some of my greatest influences and teachers over the years have been Donna Farhi, Gary Craftsow, Maty Ezraty, Elise Miller, Jeanne Heilman, Judith Lassater, Carmen Fitzgibben and Bob Campbell.  I am so grateful for the knowledge and inspiration I have received from these gifted and talented individuals.  

May you be happy.  May you be free.
May you live in joy.  May you know peace.
May your words, deeds and actions contribute to the
over all peace and wellbeing for all.
Namaste’
