I am certified by the Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT which means I have completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training and have well over 1000 hours of teaching under my belt. My training includes Yin yoga, chair yoga, yoga for veterans and their families, yoga for children in crisis Thai massage and of course all forms of general hatha yoga.
I grew up in Long Beach, NY in the 60's as an overweight hippy chick and I struggled with my weight during my childhood, my teens and some of my adult years. With the help and loving friendship that I received from Richard Simmons I was able to change my eating habits and incorporate exercise into my life. With that change I lost 95 pounds. I have been able to keep my weight off for over 20 years making healthy food choices and engaging in daily exercise including yoga. You can check out my success story on Richard's website under Salute to Success.
I realized that even people with limited mobility are able to practice yoga. Chair Yoga was part of my training and it is extremely effective in helping senior citizens with balance, mental acuity, and self image. Yes, all this can be accomplished from a chair.
A yoga practice can be done through group classes or private sessions. Beginner yogis and first timers are always welcomed in my classes. I can also come to you at your home for one on one sessions which is done by appointment only.
I have specialized training in Yin Yoga, Yoga Gangsters and Thai Massage. I have been studying, and spending weekend retreats with the world's best and most famous teachers such as Rodney Yee, Seane Corne, Richard Freeman and Cindi Lee.
