Residence: Astoria, NY
I believe that when your yoga practice is genuine it follows you off your mat like your shadow. Some days I still can’t touch my toes, but I am constantly reminded to speak more gently, listen more carefully, and breathe more deeply. Yoga has given me some of the greatest gifts in my life: a true acceptance of my body, a source of relief from city stress, an outlet for creative expression, and a community of dear friends. My classes are based on an atmosphere of learning and laughter. I believe that the roles of teacher and student are interchangeable. I hope to encourage a sense of curiosity and a willingness to bring a fresh perspective to the practice of yoga each and every day. I received my 200 hour certification from Laughing Lotus Yoga Center in New York City and currently teach several vinyasa classes each week. In addition to my AcroYoga studies, I am a certified Relax & Renew Trainer with Judith Lasater and a Thai yoga massage practitioner.

I am grateful to all of my teachers for their insight and gentle guidance. And I am always in awe of my students who continue to show up for themselves again and again.
