About this pro

Empathy” is the word that comes to mind. I can empathize with people’s struggles, their difficulties, their shame, and their embarrassment.                                  

I Think dealing with those difficulties has made me a better teacher. The teachers tell  that unless you’ve overcome a difficult body or difficult situations, it’s really hard to see where your students are, those yoga students who have tighter bodies are going to be the best teachers, because they have more limitations and have to work extra hard to learn to overcome them. If someone is really flexible and doesn’t understand the hindrances that the students have, it’s really hard to teach them.I feel like it’s the same thing for me. 

The fact that  I can work with veterans, with addicts, with those who have a disease like breast cancer that makes them feel vulnerable. I do believe that the challenges I’ve faced have helped me to be a more well-rounded teacher, friend and confidante.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My background as a laweyr, yoga and meditation teacher who has study for years buddist psychotherapy and recently consultation and mentoring ,has given me great adaptability to be ease in all sorts of situations. Discussion is nessecary in my teaching along with analysis of personal issues..If the student needs consultation or psychological support   the session is 2 hours. If it's only yoga we can arrange the time...from 1 hour to 1 hour and a half. Everything depends from the needs each student has.

I was trained as a yoga teacher at Integral Yoga Institute in Manhattan in Hatha style level I,II,III and prenatal labor and post partum .
