She is wide-eyed and open to living life to its fullest. She guides and helps others to embrace the magic of this life. You can find her plunging into the cold Atlantic (year round), leading weekly yoga classes, workshops, trainings at Lila East End Yoga, chasing her two wild and active boys down to the beach, howling with the monkeys on Retreat in Costa Rica, stirring soup in her kitchen, and/or circling with close friends and family. She sees this one amazing life as one to be lived in good form, health, and love. She has been experimenting with both on and off the mat for decades to embrace healthier ways of relating. Yoga and Ayurveda have been guiding posts on her discovery of living a more balanced way of being. She has been teaching Hatha yoga for a couple of decades. Expect to move with thoughtful engagement and to challenge yourself to be present with your breathe, movement, and stillness throughout class.
