I am a 500hr teacher, certified through YogaWorks where I practice and mentor with senior teacher Chrissy Carter. My classes incorporate movement and breath to build heat, focused and creative sequencing that connects key actions from one pose to the next, and attention to alignment. I use props, clear demonstrations and a hands-on approach to help my students make their own discoveries.
I am inspired by the inquiry, clarity and honesty I find in my practice and how it empowers me to be open, fearless and vulnerable in life. I love to support and challenge my students to stay present and playful as they explore their own practice.
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.
