About this pro

Classes are personalized to students individual abilities, needs and goals. My objective is for clients is to enjoy practicing yoga, to notice the tremendous benefits and develope an awareness of how they feel when, after they practice. Lastly to want to develope a regular yoga practice, where individuals look forward to practicing on their own or in guided classes. I also teach guided meditation. 

I have well appointed studio space with ample parking in Bedford Hills, NY and New Fairfield, Ct. 

I enjoy working with a broad range of people whose knowledge and experience in yoga varies. Each day our bodies feel different, our energy is different for a variety of reasons.  Classes take that into consideration.  I have and continue to study the science of yoga, therapeuitc yoga and continuiously read, study and take classes to expand my knowledge and understanding of the mind, body and spirit. I have been practicing yoga for 13 years and teaching for 5 years

Determined by the class, length of the class and number of classes you are interested in.  I will travel to clients home and have studio space with ample parking in Bedford Hills, NY and New Fairfield, CT. 


How did you get started teaching?

I was a long distance runner, could no longer run. Started taking yoga classes which I loved. One of my teachers was leading a teacher training. I signed up for his training for personal development not intending to teach. While I was getting my certification and teaching one of my students was diagnosed with cancer. I became concerned of how yoga could support her during chemo and radiation. Found a yoga for cancer training, now find myself teaching a range of classes to a broad range of students with varied abilities and ages. 


What types of students have you worked with?

Clients range in age from teens to late 80’s

Clients who have worked out a little, to a lot, some of my clients work out daily, are runners, lift weights and are tight. I work with athletes, I  teach a group of young men who are training for military special opps. I work with clients who have and had cancer, parkinson's disease, trama, stress, and addiction. 

My clients are all ages, some are not flexible, many have never done yoga.  I teach everything from chair yoga to active, athletic vinjasa flows.  Some clients are not fit or flexible and some are quite flexible and in great shape. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I suggest hiring a teacher who inspires you, can challenge you, can understand and read what your body needs. Choose a teacher who can communicate in a manner that resonates with you so you understand the breathing, the transitions through the poses and queing. Look for a teacher who creates new and interesting classes. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Ask about how much training and experience the teacher has.

Ask about the format for the classes. 

Discuss personal goals you want to achieve. Tell the teacher why you want to practice, if you have any medical conditions. Discuss personal goals. It’s ok not to know and ask the teacher what might be gained by developing a regular yoga practice.
