I grew up in Manhattan and have lived in Jersey City since 1998. I write, I do yoga and I meditate. I can teach you how to do the second and third things on that list. I'm the founder of Chilltown Yoga, offering classes online and in person at The Barrow Mansion, a historic community center in downtown Jersey City.
Yoga changed my life for the better, and I am interested in helping others use it to do the same. Goals differ, but yoga will work for everyone, no exceptions. If you're willing to spend time, energy, and dedication to developing a practice, that is.
I'm interested in identifying and integrating duality, and how to exist with ease during the "uh oh" moments in daily life, both big and small. My daily yoga and meditation practice enables me to do this, and it helps me feel light and luminous.
My training is in Ashtanga Yoga under Thomas Pickarski for ERYT 500-hour Yoga Alliance certification. I am also a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP). I certified with Corina Benner for Yin Yoga, in Chakra Yoga with Anodea Judith and in the Yoga of Awakening with Seane Corn. I have studied Ashtanga with David Williams and David Swenson. I am privileged and immensely grateful to have learned from such exceptional teachers.
I've developed a daily meditation practice through yoga and as a practicing Buddhist.
My yoga and meditation practice has evolved over 25 years and it is a source of continual delight and comfort. I consider it an amazing gift that I get to share it with others.
