My yoga journey

I fell in love with yoga fourteen years ago, when I wandered into a yoga studio as a stressed out corporate lawyer and experienced a deep sense of peace in śavāsana. It wasn’t long before I did my first yoga teacher training. Eight years ago I started teaching vinyasa and hatha yoga. And this year I added to my 460 hours of vinyāsa and mantra training by completing a 300 hour advanced training in Sattva Yoga, a more integrated, dynamic, and traditional style of yoga that draws from the ancient yoga traditions of the Himalayas, and includes hatha, prānāyāma, mantra, and kriyā. I have studied with Stephanie Snyder, Elise Lorimer, Kia Miller, Anand Mehrotra, and the wonderful teachers at Yogamaya in New York City. I’m RYT-500 if you’re into certification.

I’m grateful to have discovered the deeply transformative Sattva practices; they have led the way to whole new vistas of growth, transcendence, and bliss, and I’m doing my best to share these experiences with as many people as possible. 

My public and private classes are holistic, dynamic, fun, and designed to encourage my students to unearth their highest selves, and to reach their highest potential. Ultimately, I seek to make mine and my students’ experience of yoga one of connection, love, surrender, celebration, and compassion. I see my life’s mission as one of leading people to increasing values of freedom and expansion.

I currently split my time between New York City, Peru, and Rishikesh, India, the birthplace of yoga. I lead retreats all over the world.

Surrendering fully to being lost — and this is where the art comes in — you will discover that, in addition to not knowing how to get where you had wanted to go, you are no longer so sure of the ultimate rightness of that goal. By trusting your unknowing, your old standards of progress dissolve and you become eligible to be chosen by new, larger standards, those that come not from your mind or old story or other people, but from the depths of your soul. You become attentive to an utterly new guidance system.
