Teacher - Kids' Yoga, Receptionist
I started my yoga practice about ten years ago with Felicitas Kusch-Lango at her studio in East Aurora, NY. In 2008 I moved to Ithaca, NY where I worked and practiced at Mighty Yoga for several years. In 2014 I studied yoga with Jamie Silverstein at The Grinning Yogi in Portland, OR. Last year, my yoga journey brought me to the East Meets West Yoga community, which has been my yoga home ever since. I will complete East Meets West's Yoga Teacher Training in October 2016.
I began my career as an educator in the summer of 2009. I've worked for many different educational organizations, where I have taught both children and adults, including Cornell Cooperative Extension, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, the YMCA, and Playworks. My work with Playworks focused on physical activity and healthy play, which included teaching yoga as part of my curriculum.
My yoga practice has been both empowering and healing in all aspects of my life I hope to integrate these benefits into my classes so that all students, no matter what they've experienced, can find solace, compassion, and contentment.
