- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I hold a B.A. in dance with a minor in psychology from Rutgers University. During my dance training I studied pilates, anatomy, and kinesiology. I received two yoga certifications. One is from the Joschi Yoga Institute in NYC and the other is from the Sivananda Vedanta Centre through their ashram in the Bahamas. Both schools are Yoga Alliance certified. Topics covered in my yoga training included anatomy, meditation, breathing techniques, Aruyvedic diet, and basic Sanskrit.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I started out as a dancer who fell in love with yoga. Movement has always been an integral part of my life for various reasons. When I was younger, perhaps it was my desire to emulate the beauty I witnessed of a fully staged ballet. The etherial movement seemed to take me away to another time and space. Years later when I began college at Temple University, part of my modern dance training included yoga. This inspired me to pursue my first yoga teaching certification at the Joschi Yoga Institute in New York City.
