I am a certified yoga teacher, personal trainer, health coach, and running coach, with advanced trainings in mindfulness meditation and pre- and post-natal yoga. I believe in striving for whole-body health and a balanced lifestyle, and I love nothing more than assisting people on their journeys to feeling better and stronger, physically and mentally.
For the most part, I've always been physically active and mindful of at least trying to stay healthy. Channeling these interests into a career in health and fitness is a dream come true. I offer a variety of services and combinations of services to suit each individual: yoga instruction, fitness training, health coaching, and meditation guidance. I'm also a certified running coach, specializing in coming back to running after injury, pregnancy, or a long break.
I would characterize my style of teaching or coaching as challenging but supportive; I always check in on where my client is, mentally and physically, on any given day. Some days doing 20 hill repeats is a great idea, while other days call for a restorative yoga/stretching session. I love designing fusion workouts and classes that incorporate strength building, stretching, and cardio. I particularly enjoy working with beginners in all of these areas!
As a mom myself, I'm passionate about keeping moms-to-be healthy, strong, and still engaging in physical activity to the extent they can and want to. As a distance runner, I also enjoy helping runners and athletes get the most out of their performance by integrating yoga into their programs. (See combo sessions and Saturday morning hiit/yoga workouts in “services”)
Outside of yoga, running, and trying new workouts around NYC, I love to camp, read, and binge-listen to podcasts.
I’ll try anything once, and I encourage this openness in my clients.
Explore your edges.
Try new things.
Get to know yourself and your body. Maybe even grow to love yourself a little more.
