About The Teacher

I have been practicing yoga since college, but it wasn’t until I moved to New York and was confronted by the daily stress of life in the city that I turned to yoga for a sense of calm, balance, and connection. I am a 500-hour certified yoga teacher through YogaWorks in New York City.  I am also certified in Restorative Yoga and Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga.   My teaching style consists of intelligent sequencing with an emphasis on alignment and stability paired with fluid transitions and breath-work, so that students can practice with confidence, clarity, and grace. I invite my students to challenge themselves without loosing sight of the simplicity and joy that can be found within the practice.  I bring a sense of presence, compassion, and authenticity to my teaching and aim to provide a safe and nourishing experience for my students.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
