BACKGROUND

When I was three years old,  my amazing parents signed me up for my first dance class in Queens, NY and I continued dancing for the next twenty years.  With the intention of majoring in dance at CUNY Hunter College, I was able to discover yoga through an elective in the dance department.  However, my passion for dance & performance molded into a passion for theatre & writing and I graduated with a double major in Theatre & English.  This led me to pursue my MFA at Adelphi University, where I was awarded a fellowship in Poetry.   Due to a gigantic  flaw in their system, it all fell through.  So, instead of becoming bitter, I took it all as sign to register for my first Yoga Teacher Certification in NYC.  I believe that my passion for the body and movement, along with my studies in the creative arts have provided me with a strong foundation to analyze bodies, to understand natural human emotions & tendencies, and to be in-tune with what an individual needs.
