About this pro

I sought out meditation in 2012 while living and working in NYC and earned my 200 hour yoga teacher certification in 2014. I love teaching to the individual, I particularly gravitate towards meditation, breathing activities and gentle stretching. I have worked with women going through IVF treatments, stressed university students and international students as I was a 15 year university professor in NYC and Paris. 

I have additional certification in Pranayama, breathwork and Reiki Level I for energy healing. 

I have gotten my father (age 73 and with Parkinson's) into meditation to where he can do it on his own. I love empowering people, helping them rest their nervous systems and listen to their needs and challenges. I am creative and can adjust process, paths into meditation which is essential as each body is different and responds to meditation differently.

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

A discussion on the phone prior to the first session is important and should take no more than 15 minutes. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a 200 hour RYT certification as a yoga and meditation instructor. This was earned through Beloved Yoga Sanctuary out of Reston, VA and I earned it while living in Nice, France in 2014. I have taken additional training programs with Beloved in their Virginia studio on Breathing/Breathwork or Pranayama. I also have worked with international university students leading meditation when traveling with them. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I recommend 30-40 minute meditation sessions, 2x a week.

How did you get started teaching?

I have been a university professsor for 15 years and teaching yoga and meditation for 5. I love sharing the benefits of meditation and breathwork with clients of all ages and demographics and socio economic backgrounds. It is for everyone! 

What types of students have you worked with?

International university students. Pregnant students. Men, women. 

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

Just try! Your body and nervous system will respond right away. 

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

How is the teacher adaptable to the student's needs, interests and stress levels.
