I am so grateful to have fallen in love with yoga while on the path to healing a slipped spinal disc in 2009. It was the deep physical, emotional, and spiritual cleanse from my practice that had left me eager to learn more! With the inspiration and kind encouragement from Ann Healy, Kate McChesney, and Annmarie Rung, I found the courage to receive my 200 hr Yoga Alliance certification under Jimmy Barkan in Westchester, NY (2011), and an additional Barkan Method training in Costa Rica (2012). Growing up with many years as a dancer, I have a profound love for creative movement and self expression, which I carry into my classes. I encourage my students to test their boundaries on the mat by flowing without hesitation or fear. At the end of class, it’s not the aesthetics of our postures that matter, because our bodies are constantly evolving and changing. It is rather the feeling and quality of our divine breath and conscious movement, that keep us radiating towards our highest, authentic self!
