About me

E-RYT500, I fuse my classes with movement inspired by interdisciplinary studies in Feldenkrais, Yoga with Resistance Bands, weight-lifting, and self-massage. I've been leading Yoga Tune Up® and Roll Model® Method trainings for six years, and 200hr and 300hr trainings and mentorships for 10 years. I created Yoga with Resistance Bands online and in person classes, workshops and teacher trainings that blend yoga with strength, conditioning, and rehabilitation practices. I am the creator of Body of Knowledge™ Anatomy and Biomechanics workshop series for yoga teachers and the co-creator of Movement Logic online movement therapy tutorials.

Upcoming!

Body of Knowledge™

This Summer and Fall I'm leading the Yoga Tune Up® Certification 7-day teacher training in Cleveland, Ohio and Monterrey, Mexico. This experience creates huge paradigm shifts and sometimes teaching career trajectory re-routes. It meant a lot to me in my process as a teacher, and makes a big impact on new and experienced teachers, alike. Also, this Fall, I'll also be making an appearance in several 200hr and 300hr teacher trainings as a guest anatomy instructor in NYC - Bamboo Yoga, YogaMaya, Yoga Union, and YogaWorks. Next year my travel schedule picks up as I'll be debuting my Yoga with Resistance Bands workshops all over the US and Europe. Check out Events in the menu to learn more.

Online Classes

I offer several online courses including my three Yoga with Resistance Bands full-length online classes. These complete, well-rounded strength and stability-oriented yoga classes explore a different pose theme through playful, novel postures and movements. Each pose and movement incorporates one or more resistance bands. In addition to these classes, I also offer 2 Movement Logic movement therapy tutorials for addressing low back pain and pelvic floor dysfunction. Each tutorial focuses on a specific body region and its common injuries and pathologies. You will build a library of knowledge and techniques that you can put to immediate use!
