    Yoga mirrors life and my journey as a student and teacher has had many ups and downs, twists and turns, spectacular triumphs and stunning disappointments. It is through the sharing of stories about the journey, that students learn how to use yoga as a tool to smooth the path to stabilize the discomforts of life by bringing union to the breath, thought, movement & stillness.  Laughter, sometimes moans and a couple of tears, bring forth a feeling of togetherness – that we are okay.

    Since my first class eight years ago while on a date with my future wife, through breath and movement, I have learned more and more about myself than I ever imagined.  To this day, I consider myself a student first and then a teacher.

    Ashtanga…. What can I say but one breath, one movement, power yoga!

    I enjoy connecting with students, especially the newer ones, watching and supporting them grow into full-on yogis.

    Join me for Ashtanga Practice and see where it takes you.

    I have always embraced yoga throughout my life in some way, shape or form.  Being formally trained in ballet, gymnastics and an active athlete, I grew up in constant playful wonder of the body.

    Since September 2012, I have completed 350+ hours of teaching certification in Integral, Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga, as well as 300+ hours in Thai massage.

    I aspire to teach clean and precise yoga, with attention to alignment and structural flow. Raise the Vibe Yoga!

    I met my first yoga teacher working at a summer camp (a fitting beginning to my path of study) and began seriously studying with him the following fall in a lineage heavily influenced by Tibetan Heart Buddhism.  Though that tradition was my scholarly introduction, it is not the limitation my learning experience, and I shortly thereafter began to study in a second, related lineage of teachers in the tradition of Adviata Vedanta.  I am very fortunate and greatly blessed to have such knowledgeable and compassionate gurus!

    I am a certified Ayurvedic Consultant, Ayurveda translating to the science of life, or knowledge of longevity… which is the oldest health care system known to date.  It’s focus is helping individuals to balance all parts of their being (mind, body, & soul) and looking to correct imbalance which cause dis-EASE.

    I also recently completed an Ayurvedic psychology (Spiritual Counseling) course, helping one to dive deeper into their psyche to remove unwanted habits and limiting benefits.

    The beauty of yoga is that it is ongoing, always evolving, and ever heightening one’s awareness. Being able to pass this on to others is a gift I will always value.

    Following a family tragedy, teaching was a place that offered me healing, a place to help others experience its physical and emotional aspects, but most importantly, its spiritual component.

    Certified through Jonny Kest after 20 years of practice, I continue to strengthen my practice through workshops and retreats.

    My love for yoga began at the University of Michigan over 30 years ago. Yoga has infused my life with energy, gratitude and presence.

    I believe it is so important for us to have space and mindful moments to explore – to balance ease and effort and to truly feel and be in the present.

    As a yoga and concierge wellness coach I am passionate about inspiring others to shine and to feel their best!

    In 1972, I experienced my first official yoga class when introduced to the practice during a modern dance class. It became a huge part of my life ever since, never straying far from a mat.

    I am passionate about helping to bring balance into the lives of others by encouraging the release of old traumas locked in the muscle of memory of the body and mind through employing these various techniques.

    I have always been a health and fitness advocate with a love for water sports, skiing and cycling. Practicing and teaching yoga was a natural progression with its many benefits linking breath, body and mind.

    Understanding the importance of a healthy lifestyle led me to pursue a medical career. I am a practicing physician and have incorporated yoga and meditation into my treatment plan.

    I am recently certified by the yoga alliance and look forward to sharing my passion for yoga with you. Namaste!
