You will experience warmth, accessibility, and compassion along your journey, because I believe that the practices of both yoga and good nutrition are essential to staying vibrant and free from dis-ease.

A little backstory....

While dancing professionally on Broadway, yoga came to me as a way to reduce my own stress, anxiety and injury. With a grueling performance schedule, it was also important to develop healthy eating habits that would stick. The yoga practice challenged my body and expanded my mind and heart in ways I'd never imagined, so I became a certified instructor in 2010. My passion for the wondrous fusion of movement, spirituality, mantra, and philosophy that is yoga has continued to grow ever since.

During my six years with the cast of Broadway’s WICKED, I began to pursue my Masters degree in Holistic Nutrition, determined to stay healthy, fit and energized in the long term without going to extremes. Much of my life had been spent with disordered eating patterns and viewing food as my enemy. While experimenting with more mindful eating, I soon discovered a severe gluten sensitivity that completely changed my relationship with food. The holistic approach helped me to see myself as a whole being with a unique composition, rather than as just a body in the mirror trying to look like everyone else. The more I learned about food as medicine, the better I began to feel, and I wanted to share that knowledge with everyone.

In the fall of 2014, I took a leap of faith and moved from Manhattan to San Francisco, exchanging a life in the spotlight for one of devotion, health, and wellness. Now based on the west coast, I teach Vinyasa yoga (breath-synchronized movement) as well as Yin Yoga (long-held postures that quiet the mind and hydrate connective tissues) to students of all ages and levels, integrating my love of meditative healing, hands-on assists, chanting and philosophy into every practice. I also create customized nutrition plans for individuals who are passionate about conscious living and eating.
