I have never been an athlete. When I first started yoga, I didn't have strength or flexibility. I couldn't hold a plank or touch my toes.
What I did have was back pain from my marketing desk job, stress from a fast-paced, NYC lifestyle, psoriasis and unhealthy family relationships.
Yoga gave me that foot in the door. It provided me with a toolbox to begin addressing my physical, mental and emotional needs. I started seeing relief from my back pain, I now know how to manage my psoriasis, I got over my fear of the treadmill (mostly) and I have much better boundaries in my relationships and wonderful tools for communication.
But I’m a seeker. So I didn’t just stop with what was already on offer. After teaching and practicing yoga for several years, I noticed that the most ubiquitous styles of yoga weren’t serving me or my students in the way we needed to create practical, functional movement or LASTING CHANGE in our day-to-day lives. I wanted something that would really address pain, injury, posture, and mobility. So I went in search.
And that’s what I bring to you. A yoga and mindfulness practice unlike any other. One that combines ancient wisdom and cutting-edge research in a way that makes sense for your modern life.
No acrobatics. No mystical bullshit. Just useful, practical stuff.
