In 2003 I had a severe fall and lost the ability to walk. I had an emergency surgery and an extremely long recovery period plus three more spine surgeries subsequently. Yoga saved me mentally, spiritually, emotionally and finally physically, when I regained the ability to walk again.
My past profession as a first responder has taught me the value of daily practices such as asana, meditation and inquiry and the priceless benefits of how all three can support YOU in your highly stressful daily lives.
I meditate and practice yoga daily, love teaching yoga, running, hiking, traveling, spending time with loved ones & am a volunteer at the Fishkill Food Pantry & the Children's’ Group Home in Poughkeepsie.
My mantra is through community and connection we are the best version of ourselves.
