My background & experienceAfter several years of increasing curiosity in dharma, the philosophy of yoga, I completed my first teacher training in NYC focused on Vinyasa yoga and Shamatha meditation. I advanced my studies in studios across New York City and New Orleans and on retreat worldwide. My specific focus is on Core Strength, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Therapeutics, Yoga Nidra, and sacred primary texts. I have studied Tibetan Buddhism and learned from many master teachers of this tradition. I have completed several yoga teacher trainings, train teachers in various capacities, and have opened two yoga centers in Manhattan. I now focus exclusively on online training and community-building. I have practiced on retreat (some fully-silent and solitary) around the world. I consider retreat vital for integration and honest reflection for clarity. The pinnacle of my studies came when I spent two weeks on retreat in South India to study ancient Ayurvedic Yoga with my teacher, with whom I have completed a year-long private apprenticeship and continue to study ongoing. Through her incredible generosity of wisdom, time, and joyful effort I offer Ayurvedic Birth Chart analysis and Yantra Readings.
