As both a teacher and student, I create a practice that invites space for profound body and mind awareness both on and off the mat.
My passion and goal is to guide individuals to meet and listen to their unique inner teacher while learning to honor and trust those deeper feelings…the ones that allow us to create, transform, evolve, and grow.
My work has been featured in Mantra Magazine, Origin Magazine, OM Yoga, and I am a contributor to the Yoganonymous/Wanderlust and Elephant Journal online resources.
I teach and study within the lineage of Krishnamacharya, and have completed several teacher trainings in Classical, Restorative/Therapeutic Yoga, Prenatal, Anatomy, Breathing, Meditation and Reiki which span a handful of cities in the United States and India.
Along with offering 200/300 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Trainings and Continuing Education Programs, I am also the head of faculty at the Yi-Yuan International School of Yoga in Beijing, China.
My roots were planted and grown in New York City, and I have bloomed into a European lifestyle in Tuscany, from which half of my heritage originates.
I work with clients and students in my adopted hometown of Florence [Firenze], Lucca, Pisa, Versilia and travel throughout Italy and the world to teach, train, share, heal, and empower others.
I teach group classes, private lessons, special workshops and retreats.
My passion for wellness encompasses a holistic healing and lifestyle approach that I love to share with both students and teachers alike.
I work with beginners, intermediates, well-seasoned yogis, professional and aspiring athletes from all backgrounds, those recovering from injuries, and those who are navigating minor or severe illness along with people in recovery from addiction – and, everyone in between, yes: humans!
We are all healing, everyday, in our own way – whether from minor or major experiences.
My philosophy is that yoga is designed to offer an experience for anyone, and everyone – basically: the combination or individual practices of Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda and Reiki will work for wherever you find yourself in life.
My teaching foundation is informed by many – including my fundamental teachers, to whom I am forever grateful: the Dalai Lama and Yogi Sivadas in India; Erich Schiffmann in California; Dr. David Frawley in New Mexico; Leslie Kaminoff, Jillian Pransky, and Carrie Parker-Gastelu, amongst all my other Big Apple influencers…notably, Sri Dharma Mittra and Elena Brower, all based in the NYC area.
Love and pranams to my students and fellow teachers, everywhere!
