Dance, Fitness, Martial Arts, Yoga…  Beginning my practice in 1996 in New York City, I’ve studied with world-renowned yoga teachers on both coasts. I’ve worked with private clients since the mid-1990s on increasing physical awareness and strength, overall wellness and connecting the body, mind and breath. My background is in modern dance and martial arts, graduating from New York University in 1994. Techniques and bodywork studied: Dance: Ballet, Modern, African, Jazz, Butoh; Alexander Technique, Meditation and Massage. In 1997, I became an ACE-Certified Personal Fitness Trainer. In 2001, I achieved my first of two Black Belts (HwaRangDo & Shotokan Karate) and I began teaching Martial Arts in 2002. After the birth of my son, I became certified with Yoga Alliance (200-hr) in 2010. In 2011, while pregnant with my daughter, I began teaching Prenatal Yoga.
