Short of the long — I found Yoga when living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I was cycling into a spiral of loneliness, depression & lack of direction. Something inside me told me to give Yoga a shot. I did. I am so grateful I did.
Fast forward to living back in New York City . . .
I began offering yoga sessions in Brooklyn, NY in 2011 & hold E-RYT 500 (“experienced registered yoga teacher”) & RPYT (“registered prenatal yoga teacher”) status through the “Yoga Alliance.” Ha. Okay, I have some experience, but again, I admit I am no scholar. I am no expert.
Over the years, I’ve come to offer multiple forms of movement practices — Vinyasa, Prenatal, Yin & occasionally, Restorative. I am also the founder of Mindful Matriarch Prenatal Yoga School (RPYS).
I am often inspired by seasonal practices, mudra & meditation. I try to bring purpose to each session & believe this practice can offer profound benefit to all people. I believe Yoga is a spiritual practice that honors the divine essence in all things.
More about me . . .
Originally from the Hudson Valley of Upstate New York & receiving my formal education with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Syracuse University, I spent the past decade living in New York City. After working as a high end Art Handler to then working full time in the “Yoga world”, I decided it was time to bid farewell to my beloved city & evolve toward a different pace of life.
I came to Maine in 2016 & I currently reside in South Portland. When I’m not teaching, you can find me deep in my garden, walking my dog, picking up a new book or fiddling with watercolors.
