I am a yogi, mother, wife, follower of the sun, the fun, the flow; ex-NY’er, former fashionista, sutra student, enlightened mind-in-training, hot tea fiend, enchanted with LA, infatuated with fresh juice, a composter, a chanter, a recovering type A, an Emissary for Joy. Yoga is my practice, my challenge, my calming, calling, community, religion, health, home and the Hanuman monkey on my back since 1995.

For 15 years I worked in fashion: well paid, well dressed and highly stressed. When my son was born, I left it all to follow the path of love - traded my stilettos for stillness - and began this journey from spinning to centered.

At the core of my teachings is a celebration for our capacity to expand, love and live more fabulously.

With utter gratitude for this profound realization, I bow to all my teachers along with every student who teaches me how to look, see, listen, hear, and connect more fully each day.
