Doing yoga has been a transformative experience for me. It has allowed me to turn inward and connect with who I truly am. In my practice I have found compassion, depth and intuition, both on and off the mat. I completed an amazing 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) at Samadhi in 2010 under the instruction of Anne and Matthew Falkowski , and Jude Kochman.  In 2016 I graduated from an advanced 500-hour YTT through The Pranakriya School of Yoga. This training explored advanced teaching and postures as well as the ancient practices of Tantra Hatha Yoga.

I am profoundly grateful to the teachers who have nurtured my love of yoga, and am humbled by the love and support of my fellow yogis. I have worked as a Therapist and then a Social Worker through the court since I received my Master’s degree in 1991, serving many traumatized people, and yoga has helped me to heal on many levels.  I love teaching classes, leading workshops and retreats, being a part of  teaching students in Yoga Teacher Training, and exploring new areas of learning as I continue my study of yoga and its many facets and specialties.

I am moved by the blessing of sharing the sacred practice of yoga with fellow students. I applaud all of you yogis, whether this is your first class or your thousandth, for giving yourself the gift of yoga. Come as you are….Namaste.
