Her introduction to yoga began in NYC in 1993 after years as a professional ballet dancer and several nagging injuries, she found her way into an Ashtanga class… what a humbling, yet magical experience! It wasn’t until she moved to California years later that she began to seek out this “yogic lifestyle” and embrace it mind, body and SOUL.
