I started practicing yoga consistently in 2009. I've completed 500hrs of teacher training through YogaWorks under the mentorship of Chrissy Carter and have been teaching full time since 2015. In 2017 I passed the YogaWorks Certification on the path to becoming a teacher trainer, and I assisted both Chrissy Carter and Laurel Beversdorf in their respective 200hr teacher trainings. I am currently studying anatomy, biomechanics and kinesiology with Jason Ray Brown in a 100+hr continuing education course.
I am passionate about teaching a biomechanically informed practice that emphasizes inquiry and exploration. I love guiding my students to stay present and playful, and to move in ways that progress them towards clarity, balance and true alignment with themselves.
When I’m not teaching, I’m usually busy with some kind of project. My previous life running farmers markets for the non-profit organization GrowNYC taught me the love and simplicity of cooking with fresh, local ingredients and an appreciation for the ebb and flow of the seasons. I love to cook, bake and preserve food, and my partner and I grow over 30 varieties of vegetables in our little patch of dirt in Brooklyn, NY.
