With a focus on harnessing strength, over flexibility, my style is for the masses. I believe in functional transitions that are always changing yet consistently tap into core strength. My style is motivational. I pull inspiration from things as varied as the Yoga Sutras and my eternal fondness of Muhammad Ali. I believe in a fluid practice that constantly “moves the cheese” but touches the entire body — ending in a long, restful savasana. I have been practicing since 2001 and teaching since 2004. I hold a 500hr certification from Laughing Lotus NYC with a 100HRs of training in yin and energy work. I am also working toward a 300HR with Yoga Medicine. These two programs touch on the opposite spectrums of “what I love about yoga” — it’s innate ability to heal and connect us to our physical body and it’s ancient wisdom of what’s beyond the physical body. I practice yoga because it is a saving grace that brings clarity, adjusts my attitude and reminds me every time how strong I can be. I teach in hopes that everyone leaves their mat feeling the same way.
