I feel so blessed to be able to share yoga and wellness with others – especially because I didn’t plan on becoming a yoga teacher. I was performing poetry professionally in New York City and decided to go to Beijing to learn Mandarin for a year. Only for a year, and then I would come back and continue making art and performing. Who knew I would leave China early, travel through Southeast Asia for 5 months, and ultimately end up in an ashram in southern India? I spent 6 life-changing months in India, and I will be forever grateful for whatever divine hand that guided me to this path. When I returned to New York, I was able to start teaching yoga right away. Alongside my private work, I teach group classes to adults, young people, and the elderly. It gives me great joy and satisfaction to be able to share yoga and wellness with a range of age groups and abilities.
From yoga, I found it quite natural to explore pranic healing and then Thai bodywork – forms of wellness that also lead to peace of mind and physical vitality. Eventually, I would like to open a community-based wellness center, offering yoga, meditation, bodywork, and healthy living/nutrition workshops.
Whatever I’ve learned, I am more than happy to share with you. Keep your health and well-being in the forefront of your mind. Remember the best way you can give to others is to take care of yourself first!
