Growing up with a fast-paced, constant-driving, coffee-drinking, standard New York diet and lifestyle kept me frazzled and depressed. Finding the discipline of yoga was the perfect calling to bring energizing activity, compassionate thinking, and spiritual vitality back to my life.
I’m excited to share the wisdom learned from various teachers and yoga styles to bring consciousness and gratitude everywhere.
