I love movement — all of it — from the rehearsed steps of a ballet dancer to the proud strut of a New York pigeon. Growing up, I took my first dance classes in a volunteer firehouse and never stopped. After more than 20 years studying ballet as well as contemporary forms of dance, including Ohad Naharin's movement language Gaga, I found yoga. I'm beyond grateful for this practice and love sharing its transformative and healing powers. I recently graduated from the Sky Ting teacher training program, which draws on elements of Vinyasa, Hatha, as well as Katonah yoga. As a teacher, I look to nature, literature, and art to create imaginative sequences that balance effort and grace. Think: heat-building postures, breathwork, and restorative cool downs. I strive to create a safe and welcoming environment so we can meet ourselves where we are, on and off the mat.
