Who did you study with?

I’m grateful to have studies with any inspiring teacher.  My Yoga teacher training at New York Yoga was under the guidance of Michael Gilbert.

2014

What other jobs have you had?

Formerly I worked in the fashion industry.  Currently I also teach Pilates on both mat and apparatus, as well as Meditation.

Favorite place that you have traveled to?

Greece and Turkey

List 3 words your students would use to describe your classes:

Creative, Challenging, and Playful

How does your own practice influence your daily life?
From the way I communicate and interact with others, to my internal dialogue with myself, to the food I eat, to the decisions I make, my yoga practice influences my life in more ways than I can count.  I have learned to show up with intention, brush myself off when I fall down, and be open to trying new things. 

Favorite asana?
Pincha Mayurasana (forearm stand) is my all-time favorite, but I also love a good heart-opener like camel pose.

Who is a teacher who inspires you?

Every teacher I’ve had the pleasure of taking class with has influenced me in one way or another.  A couple of teachers that I’m currently inspired by are Rod Stryker and Kathryn Budig.

A great yoga class makes you feel…

At ease.
