I am the author of two books, Handbook of Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, and Cultivating Your Microbiome. Having started out my holistic wellness journey as an energy healing practitioner, I wanted to cultivate my own energy. For this I turned to Yoga. I've been teaching and practicing since 1998. My studies included 8 months in India where I dipped into not only asana, but Sanskrit, Ayurveda, Breathwork, Meditation, and my favorite, Yoga Philosophy/Psychology. I currently have an acupuncture clinic in Upstate NY.
