When looking for a new perspective, try turning your view upside down!
Of cuorse, like all things, the implication to literally go upside-down should not be universally prescribed. However, I do encourage taking a fresh look at those things that are blocking you. They are usually much smaller than you think!
CREDENTIALS AND BIO
It was about 15 years ago that I had a burning desire and strong vision to open a wellness center in the mid-Hudson Valley, but it was not until 2017 that the vision became a reality. Vision is powerful and so is timing. Sometimes we can see something so clearly, but we have to find our way. Full Bio Here

My philosophy is simple. I believe we that we should embrace our lives fully. I believe we need safe spaces where are all welcome. Where we can be authentic and free. Combing my nearly two decades of yoga practice and creating community experiences, I enjoy collaborating, teaching and learning.

I truly desire communities, religious or not, who sometimes struggle with ancient yogic philosophies and how they relate to their own spiritual journey, to find a way to benefit from a yoga practice. As a dedicated Christian, I have found that my prayer and praise is supported and expanded by my practice.

I believe that the art of pranayama can center us and a regular yoga practice (or any daily commitment to movement) can heal and sustain us. As a long time practitioner of yoga and a lover of nature and movement, I am deeply committed to the art of self-discovery and healing. I am equally committed to being available to help others find their inner peace, calming breath and ability to self heal. Full Bio Here
We are born with the natural ability to be happy living in our truth. But life can cloud our view and inhibit our growth. Yoga, art and nature can help lead us back to a childlike openness and our true selves. I first started my practice with Bikram and found a healing energy by which I am continually inspired.
Teaching has deepened my commitment to the art of yoga, as I feel it is so important to make it accessible for all. I often hear people say, "Yoga is not for me, because I am not flexible." I always reply, "perfect!" because the truth is that yoga is a journey that does not require previous experience or athleticism. It only requires coming to the mat with an openness and willingness to find some growth.
I want my students to come away from class with a calmer mind, a more steady breath and a sense of growth within themselves. Yoga provides us with a way to step away from distractions and find what we seek.
At my studio, my team and I aim to offer something for everyone, including Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, yoga therapy, pre-natal yoga, restorative yoga, movement and fitness classes, sound healing and kids yoga. Vrksasana ("tree pose") is one of my favorite poses. When I see my students in Vrksasana, I am reminded that we are this beautiful forest of individuals who, like nature, need nourishment, support, breath and love to flourish in our individuality.
