How did it all begin? It began with a magical book and a deck of cards…
Many years back, I was given the book, Light on Yoga and the yoga card deck, Om Yoga in a Box. These two gifts shifted the trajectory of my life and took me on a journey of unexpected healing and happiness.
Years later, after teaching myself yoga through these two tools, and after getting a B.A. in Fine Arts in Boston, I decided to become a yoga teacher. I packed my bags, and headed to Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health for one whole month of an immersive 200hr training. I had no idea what to expect, since I had only taken a handful of actual yoga classes in my life and admittedly didn’t know what the OM symbol even looked like. I only knew that I loved yoga and wanted to learn more about it. What I received from my training was much more than I could have ever imagined-deep healing. It was like I had shed an ancient skin and was new again. I’ve been teaching yoga as a passion and career ever since.
My passion for teaching is rooted in direct knowing and understanding of yoga’s healing powers. And through my teaching, I hope to transmit healing on a deep level. To me, the practice of yoga is a sweet balance of discovery of the authentic self and the recovery or rediscovery of the true self.
My classes are strong, athletic and flow-y. You may feel worked out, but my classes don’t feel like a gym workout. My classes offer a philosophical/spiritual component with an easy going modern vibe. One can count on consistent mind, body, breath cues which are creatively and intelligently sequenced. Alignment cues abound and space is always allowed for intuitive movement. Chill dubstep, atmospheric beats, and traditional yoga music merge with the energy of each class.
Creative and inspired, I have a 200hr and 300hr yoga teacher certification from Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health and a 200hr from Pranotthan School of Yoga, founded by two mentors. I am the Director of 200hr Yoga Teacher Trainings at Kripalu as well as the Founder and Director of Moksha Vinyasa 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. When I’m not immersed in teaching, I enjoy worshipping the sun, spending quality time with loved ones, watching sci-fi movies and getting right-brained in my art studio.
I lead programs, retreats, and teacher trainings throughout the world and have immense gratitude for all my teachers who are everywhere and in everything.
