In 1992, I graduated with honors from Douglass College and Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. With a double major in Communication and Visual Arts, I ventured into the world of media production with the intention of creating uplifting and inspiring programs. From 1992 through 1999 I worked for several production companies and networks including PBS, NYTV, Nickelodeon and Turner Broadcasting.
Due to stress related issues, I began practicing Yoga in 1995. I soon discovered that Yoga is an amazing and complementary path that changed my life for the better and also allows me to inspire people in a whole new way.
My Yoga classes are choreographed with care to effectively support your journey of well being and personal growth. You will find the experience to be an uplifting blend of movement, postures, alignment, breath-work, and guided meditation…lovingly woven together with words of inspiration. One of my favorite aspects of teaching is assisting people in transitioning their Yoga practice into everyday life. Each month, I focus on one foundational principle that will support you both on and off the mat, so you may live from a place of greater illumination and empowerment. In addition to teaching Yoga on the mat, I love assisting people in transitioning their Yoga practice into everyday life. My co-facilitator, Richard Gange, and I offer three Life Programs that share the keys to living a more mindful and inspired life.
My Yoga and Mindfulness training began in 1997 with Claire Diab, founder of the American Yoga Academy and current director of Deepak Chopra’s Yoga School. I studied with Ms. Diab for several years and assisted her popular Zen and Yoga class at Seton Hall University. In 1999, I completed a 200hr certification at Kripalu Yoga Center with Rashmi Sue Jenkins and Melanie Armstrong, and have returned to Kripalu many times since then for continuing education. In 2003, I expanded on my foundation with a second 200hr Anusara training with Vishali Varga and Jonas Westring, followed by a period of study with Anusara founder, John Friend. In 2005, I completed the Educo Mind Mastery course with Dr. Tony Quinn on Paradise Island. It was there that I learned the power of the subconscious mind, as well as advanced skills for consciously creating a life in harmony with the true self. Most recently, I completed the YM School of Alignment’s 300hr advanced certification with Omni Ferrara, Donna Scro, and Vishali Varga. I have 17yrs and 7000hrs of teaching experience.
