I first tried yoga in college on a rare day off from cheerleading to stretch and strengthen my sore and tired muscles. It wasn’t until a few years after graduation however, that I truly learned the transformative powers of the practice when yoga helped me heal after the devastating loss of my mother to a brain tumor.
Once I took my first yoga teacher training at Karma Kids Yoga in 2005 I knew I was on a special journey. My love of kids and yoga allowed me to combine my passions and share a special gift with even the youngest yogis. I went on to get certified to teach adults, pre and postnatal yoga, children with special needs, and even seniors. I teach yoga to EVERY body and EVERYBODY – from infants as young as 5 weeks old to adults 105 years ‘young.’
I have served as the Group Exercise Director for 34 locations of New York Sports Club and I am presently the Director of Business Development at Karma Kids Yoga in NYC where I am also a senior teacher training facilitator. I have traveled internationally training adults how to teach yoga to children and have also created the Kids Yoga en Español curriculum as a way for kids yoga teachers to incorporate Spanish into their classes.
In spite of my busy schedule, my true passion is sharing the gift of yoga with my students. I try to challenge my students to not take themselves too seriously, to step out of your comfort zones and to always try a pose the mind thinks the body can’t do.
