“I help my students unlock their beauty and their potential. I love to empower everyone I meet to find their inner truth, and fuel their journey to self-love.”
Like you, I have had many life challenges and have realized that these experiences have been powerfully transforming. These include the birth of my four fabulous children (one of whom was born while I was studying for my masters degree), my social work in the ER and in court rooms, along with some challenging personal situations that turned into growth opportunities.
When I discovered I had the BRCA hereditary cancer gene, I dedicated myself to making lasting changes in my life. I made the almost impossible decision to have a double mastectomy and hysterectomy, and was surrounded by fear and overcome with difficult emotions. Not knowing the outcome of my surgery and how my body would survive, I turned to what I knew best: my Yoga practice, and one last moving meditation before I stepped into my surgery.
My surgery was a success, and I began to tap into a resilience I had long forgotten. There was something about making a choice to help myself heal, take my power back, and begin this work that created a newfound confidence within me. I discovered how to love myself, feel confident again, and learned how to create true boundaries for myself. I found happiness, and also found myself on a new spiritual journey as I began to write each day and dedicate myself to the healing practice of journaling.
During this time, I had a profound vision of bringing people together through the beauty of Yoga. I wanted to show as many people as I could that the power of our minds is truly limitless, and that we are capable of more than we possible could imagine.
I am now driven to share my Yoga teachings and life philosophies with people of all ages, and to support those who might feel isolated and have self-doubt. I help my students connect with their inner stillness through movement by showing them just how strong they can be, and by opening them to a whole new world of reconnection, perspective, and resilience.
Yoga is the Sanskrit word for “to yoke” or “to join” – it is something that lets you build connections and bridges. I’ve worked countless hours to expand my Yoga practice to adapt it for teenagers, athletes, celebrities, and people of all ages, so they can come and just be themselves, no matter what their physical abilities.
I look forward to meeting and supporting you. Namaste.
