Teacher - Vinyasa
I am a board certified rehabilitation medicine doctor (MD), experienced registered yoga teacher (E-RYT), wellness consultant, and fitness expert who is passionate about exercise as prescription for healing. My training includes holistic health coaching (CHHC) through Integrative Nutrition, and Medical Acupuncture through Harvard University. I also carry a board certification in Integrative and Holistic Medicine. Furthermore, I am a certified Cancer Exercise Trainer (CET) through American College of Sports Medicine and a Level II Reiki Practitioner.
Specifically on the mat, I have a foundation in Anusara Yoga, and have continued to broaden my practice through Yoga for Seniors with Duke University, Iyengar Yoga for Scoliosis and Back Care, Baptiste Yoga for Athletes, Restorative Yoga Therapeutics, Aerial Yoga, Acroyoga and Thai Yoga Massage. Through these diverse pathways, I have established a vibrant and comprehensive approach to my Yoga journey and teaching. My philosophy of “movement for healthful living” is supported by my background in endurance sports, Spinning, Pilates, Barre, Aerials and Hoop. To date, I have over 20,000 combined hours of teaching, training, practicing and continual education in yoga, fitness and wellness.
Through my roles as a Lululemon Athletica Ambassador, Prana Influencer, Inner Fire Luminary and Acroyoga JAMbassador, I enjoy helping build a community in which supported play, exploration, and inspiration can be achieved on and off the mat. Acroyoga has been a wonderful gift to me for the last couple years and along with her background in Aerials, I have been enjoying performing for my community. I currently teach a variety of fitness and wellness classes as well as private mind/body medicine clients, and lead workshops in Aerial Yoga, Partner Yoga, Yoga Fusion, Acroplay, Therapeutic Yoga and Pilates in Upstate NY.
