With the founding of Be Inspired Yoga™, I brought to life my vision for helping people feel better and to live their lives with more fun and ease. I was drawn to Yoga Therapy to address my own issues with chronic pain so that I could get back to my favorite activities. I became motivated to become trained and to teach and share yoga therapy and mindfulness meditation after experiencing life-changing effects, which went far beyond just getting out of pain.
I bring extensive teaching experience and over 1,500 hours of teacher training to benefit the individuals, children and adults with whom I work. I've been practicing yoga for more than 17 years. In addition to my 200-hour yoga teacher and 800-hour yoga therapy training programs, I have also completed children’s yoga andmindfulness meditation teacher training programs. I earned my B.A. from Wellesley College.
I teach with compassion and without judgment and share my joy of yoga and mindfulness meditation with my clients. I care deeply, listen, and use clients' priorities to design a custom program to give them the tools they need to meet their unique needs.
My personal yoga therapy and mindfulness meditation practices have helped me enjoy my life more and connect more meaningfully with my family and everyone around me. I am inspired when I get to witness other people dedicate themselves to doing the practices that bring them closer, step by step, to living the life they want to live.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?
… Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do…. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
