I am a seasoned actress and playwright that has taught acting, movement, and voice classes for over ten years in Philadelphia, New York, Paris, San Francisco, and now Sacramento. My classes are personalized and based on the Method and Meisner techinques, which teach actors to be real and authentic. I am also a vocal and accent coach . Learn to hone your acting skills with techniques that are perfect for both the stage and film.
I love theatre and film, wathcing character move from the page to the stage. When I see students come alive it is an honor to watch. To witness an actor moving from mediocre to phenominal is a privilege
I am writing on behalf of Karen Devaney, my yoga teacher for many years. Karen taught both classes and privates, which I benefitted greatly from. She is flexible in her ability to meet people’s yoga needs, provides alternative postures and great modifications. Karen is also a Registered Nurse, which I loved knowing! She knows how to show different ways to get in and out of pose and has fun flows that make you feel amazing afterwards. If you need any other information, let me know. Karen is fantastic and I would hire her as she is adaptable to many situations and can teach the beginner to the experience student.
Karen creates a safe space for students to explore and deepen their individual yoga practice. Her teaching style is well informed by her unique background as a performing artist and healthcare professional. In addition to her years of experience as a yoga practitioner and instructor, she has a deep understanding of physiology and a strong passion for artistic expression through movement. Her students feel both supported and challenged, but never pressured. She approaches each class with humility and openness, which allows her to respond in real time to her individual students' needs.
. I have studied under Karen both privately, one on one, and in group settings. I have found her to be very knowledgeable of the practice; extremely committed to her personal practice; humble and empathetic as she serve to teach, coach and support the student through their individual intention and practice. Whether a class full of advanced students or a mixture from one extreme to the other, Karen is expert in creating a comfortable space for each individuals level of practice. Karen has a gift of creating an atmosphere of one on one instruction whether you are one or a group of 21 under her leadership.
I ask the student want they want to accomplish and what they already know. I am experienced in movement, character development, voice, and script analysis.
