I’ve been trained in the following styles of yoga:
• Integral Yoga - Swami Satchidinanda. Trained in Huntington, New York by my mother at her yoga studio, August Moon Yoga. (1990s)
• YogaFit Teacher Certification (2008)
• Hot House Yoga / Yax Yoga Concepts. RYT 200 – Hot Yoga. (2010)
• Hot House Yoga / Yax Yoga Concepts. RYT 500 – Hot Yoga & Vinyasa. (2012)
I grew up on Long Island in New York (70s, 80s, 90s) where my mother taught me Integral yoga – it was a part of our family philosophy! Later, during my graduate school years while living in Norfolk and Virginia Beach, VA, I found Hot House Yoga and the Yax family - amazing teachers! I've been practicing, studying, and teaching a blend of gentle Integral yoga and the Yax family's loving and empowering Hot Yoga & Vinyasa Yoga styles since 2005.
I’m also a therapist/counselor (mental health) and enjoy combining yoga and counseling to heal, motivate, and inspire the whole person – body and mind!
I live, practice, teach, work, and have fun here:
