​Inquiries:

I currently teach yoga for a number of sports teams and athletes in and around the Philadelphia area. In 2015, I developed and implemented a yoga program for The Haverford School varsity lacrosse team under Head Coach and Athletic Director, John Nostrant. (His wife happens to be my health and well-being guru :)). Following that, I created and implemented a yoga program for Temple University Football.  I have continued to bring my Yoga for Athletes program to Division I college teams, Inter-Ac high school teams, and club teams including teams at St. Joe's University, Villanova University, The US Naval Academy, Penn Charter, Boy's Latin of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Cricket Club.

I have had the opportunity to work with a number of large organizations and corporations. I have led yoga retreats and workshops focused on topics from arm balances to essential oils to mindful living for students and business leaders. I have worked with individuals of a wide range of abilities and needs - teaching meditation to persons recovering from brain injury, neck injury and cancers; teaching yoga to persons recovering from surgery (shoulder, foot, neck, core repair), post-op hip and knee replacements, coping with arthritis and RA, and people with plain old bad balance or tight hamstrings!

Yoga for Athletes    

​This program focuses on improving functional mobility and sharpening the mind to enhance performance, lessen the likelihood of injury, and prolong the lifespan of activity.

Mindful living 

(Blog)

Yoga and meditation are amazing vehicles for transformation, but you are the only one who can make change happen in your life. Mindfulness in the Modern World offers actual practices and messages to help incorporate mindful living into your everyday. 

​I have been practicing yoga for over 13 years and teaching for about 5 years. I completed my yoga teacher training in 2013 and meditation teacher training in 2015.

After graduating from Penn State in 2013, I went right to work at a law firm in Philadelphia, intending on attending law school shortly after. (If you know me, you know that would have never worked out). While working full-time, I was teaching 2 or 3 yoga classes a week on the side. Two years later, I left the law firm to become a full time yoga teacher.
