What should students expect from your class?

All I really want is for my students to feel better when they walk out, than when they walked in – and to carry that feeling with them all day and night.

About Me

I began turning upside down in my living room as a teenager and years later discovered what I was doing was called Yoga! I found yoga again as an adult. A stressful, anxiety laden life raising a family while maintaining a career as a performer had taken a toll. Juggling everything was just plain hard. I fell into Yoga to complement a lot of aerobics, never expecting it was going to become a way of life and something that would bring so much joy from personal practice and the ability to share with others. As an instructor, I encourage individual exploration and playfulness in practice. There is a phrase you sometimes hear about Asana – “The full expression of the pose.” My adaptation of that would be “The full expression of YOUR pose.” Where does your body sit? How does it feel? Where can you find more ease? As someone who was never a dancer or gymnast I am aware that Yoga can seem daunting but knows that miracles can happen over time. Yoga is a living, breathing entity – constantly changing and full of potential for personal growth.

A favorite joke – not a yoga joke but it could be. A tourist stops a New Yorker on the street and asks “Excuse me, how do I get to Carnegie Hall?” The New Yorker looks at them and says, “Practice. Practice.Practice.” We can all get to our Carnegie Hall.
