I was born and raised in NY and began my yoga practice during high school with Bikram yoga. I have been practicing yoga for over 15 years and completed her 200 Hr YTT certification through Yoga Alliance in October 2020. I am also certified in Kundalini Breath Work + Meditation through the Himalayan Institute. I have built a dynamic foundation of ancient yoga tools + techniques to bring my students balance. I have taught yoga at studios, gyms, private clients, kids programs, prenatal clients, and has her own online yoga business, Vow To Bow. My goal as a yoga guide is to lead students on a journey of self-discovery through movement. I believes that yoga can shift mindsets, bringing people happiness on and off the mat. Most importantly, I value practice over perfection and love to students shine after every session.
Ashtanga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois . This method of yoga involves synchronizing the pranayama (breath control) with a progressive series of asanas (postures) which create a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind. This class is bilingually instructed.
