Where do you live?
Still in NJ…I’m from a family of 8 children and we are really close. Almost all of us live walking distance from each other!

# of years teaching yoga:
I’ve been teaching yoga for almost 4 years. I started teaching after I graduated college. I also teach barre in NJ.
Do you have a second professional life?:
Now I’m yoga 24/7. I used to work in an outside sales role and teach yoga before and after work. I was at Level 2 in Menla, NY when I decided to quit my day job to pursue yoga full time. Make space for something new!
What are your outside interests outside the studio?
I love to spend quality time with my family and friends.
Favorite pre- and post-yoga snacks/meals:
Pre – some fruit and definitely some coffee. Post – I’ll anything and everything as long as it’s vegetarian. I also LOVE Mexican food, including Qdoba.
What’s your favorite pose?
Half Moon because it’s challenging and playful.
The pose I have a complicated relationship with:
Standing Leg Raise. I was an athlete who never stretched! I found yoga as a college basketball player. I thought touching my toes would forever be impossible. Some days I still feel like there is glue in my hamstrings, but anything worthwhile takes time right?!
What song can you put on repeat?
Hey Ma by Cam’Ron.
to create community.
