​Registered Yoga Teacher. Licensed Massage Therapist. Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner.

"When we begin to live in the body again, we discover that we have an internal environment that is as rich as that of any country and in a constant state of flux and change."

Donna Farhi, Bringing Yoga to Life

I have been in the world of Yoga Teaching, Massage Therapy, and Energy Work for about 10 years.  I have worked with people going though cancer and chronic illness, caregivers, community colleges, at a local JCC and privately.  I had practiced Yoga and Meditation personally off and on over the years before being trained as a teacher.  It was and still is tremendously helpful for me in facing my own issues of anxiety and fear.  


It is my belief that anyone who wants to do Yoga can do it.  It is a very personal and adaptable practice.  My teaching style is designed to empower people to connect with, find ease and love in their own bodies.  It is an eclectic practice because I include teachings from various forms that I have studied over the years. It is my great joy to share what I continue to learn with anyone who is willing to show up and give it a try.  

I have brought massage to a range of people as well.  I can create a massage program based on an individual’s physical concerns, lifestyle, and preferences.  Some of the modalities that I offer are Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Table Thai Massage (passive stretching with massage) as well as a form of energy work called Jin Shin Jyutsu.  

All sessions, whether private yoga or massage will be done with great consideration and mindfulness around contagious illness prevention.  Safe practices will be in place so that you can have as soothing and peaceful experience as possible.
