I’ve always been a fitness girl.


It used to be solely for surface reasons, like staying skinny. Then later developed into a necessity for staying sane. (My husband and kids can concur that after two days of no physical activity I turn into Mean-Mom!) .

As the need to workout ingrained itself into my freelance styling lifestyle, I realized that toned legs and a firm butt weren’t the end-all in exercise for me. The machines at the gym got boring. And the same old set of fitness classes didn’t excite. I was looking to add meaning to my movement .
.
I discovered yoga in my 20s which eventually led to a 200 hour certification, and then a teaching gig at Excelsior Health Club. My days were spent on photo shoots making models look good while my evenings were spent teaching yoga to help my students feel good.
.
Then something shifted inside me. Once you do a lot of yoga (or any mind body exercise) regularly, it starts to seep into all aspects of your life.
.
It becomes a lifestyle, and it doesn't stop when class ends. In fact, that's just the beginning -- to figure out how to bring a more mindful, soulful approach to everything in life.

I began writing for YogaCity NYC, and interviewing people in all aspects of the yoga and wellness world. As a yoga journalist, I engaged in conversations about movement meditation with a Whirling Dervish, discussed the relationship between mind and body with a 5 Rhythms Dance instructor, and learned how to abide in the heart with a Buddhist Meditation teacher.

I also travelled around NYC, writing for Yoga Sleuth, sampling the different yoga studios and instructors the city has to offer. (My entire writing portfolio is here.) These experiences not only provided insight into the inner circle of the yoga and wellness world of NYC, they propelled my own practice.

These days, my practice has expanded beyond yoga and meditation (which I still do regularly). Basically, if it helps me become my most awesome self - mind, body and soul, it’s part of my practice.


It is my hope to help you create a lifestyle of practice so you live well and look AWESOME!

And when I'm not engaged in any of my practices, I'm hanging out with my husband and two kids on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
