LETTER FROM THE FOUNDER
What was once a creative way to move the body while breaking out a satisfying sweat, has now become an inherently transformative part of my life. I was introduced to yoga by my mother alongside classical dance when I was just a little girl, but it wasn’t until years later when I sought out relief for personal injuries and mental healing, that I started to fully understand the deeper holistic benefits of yoga. After experiencing personal metamorphosis through yoga, there was nothing I wanted more than to dive deep into the practice as a lifelong student and teacher.
With a B.S in Health Sciences from Northeastern University and a comprehensive experiential background in health and wellness, I've come to understand how mental health stressors, diseases, and chronic body pains negatively impact our lives in an increasingly demanding world plagued by external pressures. Through my work, I observed many gaps in the system, noticing the lack of emphasis on preventative health care. I witnessed how human behavior and lifestyle choices inevitably impact health and wellbeing at large. I figured it's time to take back control over our mental and physical health without relying solely on reactive, acute care. When we are living consciously aware and in harmony with our minds and bodies, it truly is a game changer.
My work in health and wellness is multifaceted, and my passion to bridge the gap between modern western medicine and ancient eastern medicine remains fervent. My ancestral connection to yoga brought me to Rishikesh, India at the start of 2017 where I completed my first extensive 200 hour training in the motherland of yoga. Compelled to go even deeper, I completed my 500 hour training in my home city of NYC at Atmananda Yoga Sequence a year later. Before the world briefly shut down in 2020, I completed another advanced 200 hour training at Lighthouse Yoga School in Brooklyn. In 2023 I completed another advanced 300 hour training in Sicily with Lighthouse Yoga School. Between trainings I've maintained a steady path of learning abroad and locally through continued education trainings with some of the best internationally acclaimed yoga teachers, including Jared McCann.
Teaching yoga, meditation, and mindfulness has taught me first and foremost, that this is a lifelong practice that transcends so much of what we have been conditioned to learn and think. It's about more than just a physical practice and the lessons we learn on the mat pour out into our relationships, jobs, hobbies, dreams, and interactions with the world around us. I believe yoga is a universal healing modality for humanity.
Last but certainly not least, I will forever stand by this sentiment — we are all students, we are all teachers, and we are all creators. As an educator of this practice, I am here as a guide to hold real space for healing, deepening connection, and heightening our panoramic awareness of truth and light. Within each of us is an endless universe of abundant love and wisdom. Let's explore together.
