Questions

What are you like as a teacher?

You will always find me in a state of yoga: centered, calm, and happy to see you! I practice several hours daily and love sharing the good vibes with all who seek.

My teachings reflect my training in Bharatnatyam (Indian classical dance) and my education in Neuroscience– my approach to yoga is to balance traditional technique with creative innovation. I’m always looking for noticeable results: physical strength and flexibility, mental clarity and happiness, energetic positivity and radiance. Yoga is an incredibly effective science.

What are the benefits of private lessons?

The beauty of private lessons is that you and I are on a journey together. There is none of the competitive, feeling-watched or feeling-unseen that happens in group classes. One on one, in a beautiful and comfortable private setting, we are free to safely explore all that you can experience through yoga.

To me, yoga is about expressing our full potential in body, mind, and energy. Together, we will draw on my lifelong practice and 15 years of teaching experience to guide you towards your highest place of strength, flexibility, positivity and grace.

You will leave each lesson feeling both peaceful and inspired!

How do I book a lesson?

Like this!

We will schedule our lessons at the day and time that best suits you. I welcome you to join me in my teaching space in the East Village, or we can connect for a video lesson, or arrange lessons at your NYC home– the flexibility on scheduling is the best part of private lessons.

What style of yoga do you teach?

This depends on your interests! My practice is based on the lineages of Ashtanga and Iyengar. I am happy to teach Rocket’s creative vinyasa flow, traditional Mysore-style Ashtanga, modified Ashtanga for beginners, and restorative or yin yoga. I also teach mindfulness and meditation. If you’re thinking outside of the schools of yoga, I love being creative and am happy to design sequences uniquely for you.

Do you have any teaching experience?

Yes! I began teaching private lessons 15 years ago, and it is still my area of expertise. Along the way, I have also spent many years teaching in exclusive gyms and studios.
In Washington, DC, I transitioned from full-time neuroscientist to full-time yogi and taught for: Flow Yoga, Epic Yoga, Vida, Mint, Yoga District, the White House Athletic Center, and more. Today, I live in Manhattan and teach for The Shala and Equinox. It is my pleasure and my passion to teach– each person I meet has taught me something, and it is the greatest gift to be able to bring elements of peace, joy, and health to all I meet on the mat.
