What’s your story?
My insatiable desire to learn and grow has always been a driving force in my life, and it has lead me down many paths all of which I am forever grateful for having experienced. In 2003 I earned my bachelors degree in Philosopy at NYU, and in 2010 I earned a law degree from Hofstra School of Law after completing my studies specializing in the areas of Environmental and Asylum/Refugee Law at Hofstra Law School.
My work in both the environmental and the refugee programs at law school underscored another consistent theme in my life, which is service to others. In 2004 I developed and funded my own volunteer mission to the mountains of rural Mexico where I worked with underprivileged children for four months teaching English and helping to build a school. I have devoted time to and fundraised money for several non-profit volunteer organizations including the Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation and Momma's Kitchen in California where I spent a few hours each week hand delivering meals to San Diegans affected by AIDS. I have never perceived my volunteer efforts to be entirely selfless acts since I always reap magnificent and immeasurable gratification in work that is so spiritually rewarding.It was and is in this spirit that I decided to become a yoga teacher. Fortunate enough to find a true community and a truly special and beautiful place among the Long Island yoga community I competed my 200-hour teacher training in 2011. Firmly believing in the idea that a person will be most successful (in all aspects) by doing that which they love to do most, my main goal as a yoga teacher is simply to share. My classes are about the people that are in them and the community I want to share with them. I hold authenticity, honesty, love, patience, and compassion above all else and strive to give fully of myself in every single class. I adore music and believe there is a synergistic effect where sound and movement combine, because of this I strive to use music and environment in her classes such that the sum is greater than the parts. I am passionate, loving, enthusiastic, and especially, sincerely grateful for the awesome opportunity she is presented with in having a chance to share of myself and whatever I have to give with you.
