It was in 2002, while studying musical theatre in NYC, that the revolutionary seedlings of Yoga where first planted. Every week my vocal coach would have me drop into cat/ cow while warming up my voice. She would say, "opening and accessing the deeper dimensions of my body was the key to unlocking 'the voice inside'". This was only the beginning... Since then, I have studied from many lineages and manifestations of the yogic tradition. I have also had the honor of co- leading and assisting Teacher Trainings. Meditation is a daily practice and, an indispensable factor to the quality of my life. I received my 200 hr through YogaWorks, under the tutelage of Joan Hyman and Carmen Fitzgibbon. My certification in Trauma Informed Yoga was led by Hala Khouri and Kyra Haglund, and my Therapeutic/ Restorative certification was transmitted via Jillian Pransky. My personal interests in Creative Expression, Archetypical Psychology, Neuroscience, Kinesiology, and Ayurveda inform and inspire my teachings. Currently, I am involved with a non- profit organization, New Earth, where I lead weekly Yoga and Meditation classes for system involved youth ages 13 - 25.
