About The Teacher

As both a teacher and student, I create a practice that invites space for awareness both on and off the mat. My classes are designed with the theories of safety, alignment, and nourishment [versus punishment].

My goals are to teach and lead individuals to meet and learn from their unique inner teacher while learning to honor those deeper feelings…the ones that allow us to create, transform, evolve and grow towards our highest potential.

My home base is Lucca, a gorgeous and captivating small city within Tuscany, Italy. Here I am immersed in teaching Classical Yoga, Modern Therapeutic Yoga, and practicing Reiki Healing. I also curate and lead bespoke Retreats, Teacher Trainings, Reiki Initiations and offer Holistic Lifestyle Coaching based on Yoga’s Sister Science: Ayurveda.

I teach and study within the Krishnamacharya lineage, and I have completed several teacher trainings in Classical, Restorative/Therapeutic Yoga, Prenatal, Anatomy, Breathing, Meditation and Reiki which span a handful of cities in the United States and India.

My teaching foundation is informed by many – including my fundamental teachers, to whom I am forever grateful: H.H. the Dalai Lama and Yogi Sivadas in India; Erich Schiffmann in California, USA; Leslie Kaminoff, Jillian Pransky, and Carrie Parker-Gastelu, all based in the New York City, USA area.

Love and pranams to my students and fellow teachers, everywhere!
