The body and mind are so intricately interconnected. When you lose mobility in one, you become rigid and stagnant in the other.
When I was a child, I remember vividly being hit by waves of depression. At the time I didn’t have the vocabulary to articulate exactly what I was feeling and often found myself confused and frustrated at my inability to feel good. When I was finally able to voice my melancholy as a teenager, I was told that my family had a long history of depression and half jokingly, that we were “just long term sufferers”. (Insert face palm here).
At 17, I found myself so miserable and desperate for a way out, I finished high school early and moved to New York City in pursuit of joy and levity.
It wasn’t until I found a style of yoga rooted in science that I found my way out. With the guidance of Alan Finger, Sarah Finger, and my mentor Mona Anand, I began to teach yoga and meditation and was eventually pushed to pursue a degree in Neuroscience in Los Angeles.
And my hope is that by marrying the two, I can offer you more of an opportunity to see the reality of your own evolving nature.
And when I do feel like I’m falling into melancholy, I bounce back faster and faster every time.
Since then I’ve lead workshops, retreats, and teacher trainings in California and around the world. Through group and one-on-one classes I’ve helped thousands of people free their bodies of tension and pain, reclaim their minds, cultivate the awareness to choose a new reality in every moment.
I’m here to support you every step of the way.
