I am a physical therapist, yoga teacher and pilates instructor.
I live in the space between physical therapy, yoga and pilates where each informs the other. I love movement, and became a physical therapist to teach movement and provide safe spaces for embodiment under the medical model.
As a physical therapist, my practice focuses on the pelvic health of kiddos, adolescents and adults. I treat bowel, bladder, sexual dysfunctions as well as pelvic, low back and tail bone pain.
My yoga practice started at OM yoga in New York City under the faculty gathered by Cyndi Lee. I completed my initial teacher training there with Cyndi, Edward Jones and Joe Miller, and went on to teach at OM until its close. I furthered my education with Judith Lasater for restorative yoga and Tari Prinster for Yoga 4 Cancer. I completed further training with Rodney Yee and the faculty of Yoga Shanti’s program including Richard Rosen, Richard Freeman, Lip Orem and Manorama. I have served as guest faculty on teacher trainings for Sarah Clark’s Interconnected Yoga 200-hr training as well as for Elena Brower’s Art of Attention advanced teacher training. I am is currently studying with Leslie Howard and through Michael Stone’s archived teachings.
I started teaching Pilates when I was 16. My training was unusual, as it followed a multi-lineage private apprenticeship model. I was exposed to classical and contemporary perspectives as well as complimentary methods such as Franklin Method, Gyrotonic®, Gyrokinesis and Feldenkrais.
