I dabbled with yoga for much of my life, exposed to it through my mother and aunt, a teacher in Connecticut. As an athlete, yoga was a physical compliment to tight muscles and tense competition. After a severe concussion in 2013, I began practicing yoga, not just absent-mindedly stretching or going to classes because I “should.”
My yoga mat was the only place I felt any physical and emotional solace during an extraordinarily challenging time of my life. My practice ensued, and in 2015, I completed my RYT 200-hr with David Vendetti and Todd Skoglund at South Boston Yoga Studio.
Yoga teaches me how to be a better person—how to live without fear or judgment of self and of others; how to choose personal freedom in a society that compresses creativity and individuality; how to avoid being a hindrance to myself, and how to love without trepidation. It flows deeper than just the asana, or physical practice. Yoga is never-ending self-study, total acceptance, and a willingness to change thought patterns. My practice is loving, creative, and alignment based. You can expect sweaty, playful, inventive flows that both challenge you to express yourself outwards and draw your energy inwards. Classes are accessible to all levels with modifications available throughout. Though I am rooted in alignment-based vinyasa as well as prenatal and mama and baby yoga, I also offer classes in restorative and beginner yoga.
Though I have several years of teaching experience in studios, at this time, I only offer private/semi-private, and group classes. Whether you are interested in deepening your practice, strengthening or stretching, or delving deeper into the mental and spiritual practice of yoga, I can design classes with your personal goals in mind. Sessions begin at $75/hr. Please be in touch for more information.
