I was born and raised in Philadelphia, in the United States, and have been living in Berlin, Germany for more than twenty years. I started practicing Iyengar yoga in New York thirty-five years ago as a nineteen-year-old college student. I knew right away that I had found something that gave me deep inner calm and relaxation and that my body felt more balanced and alive than ever before.
After college, I pursued a career as a professional dancer, artist, and arts administrator (I did this for fifteen years) and continued to practise Iyengar yoga. Then one day, the director of a dance studio where I was teaching asked me if I could substitute for the yoga teacher who was going on maternity leave. I asked my teacher, Joan White, if I could teach and she said, " Yes." So, in 1991, I began teaching yoga and joined the teacher training program.
Iyengar yoga is unique in the field of yoga for many reasons. We teachers undergo rigorous training - a three-year teaching training with prior years required and teaching exams that we must pass before becoming certified. I have had six exams and am a Senior Intermediate II (Level 3) teacher, which means that I am qualified to work with people of all health conditions and train teachers. I'm a Certified Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and an Assessor for yoga teacher exams in Germany and abroad and co-direct the Iyengar Yoga Zentrum Berlin.
I have been fortunate to study numerous times in Pune, India at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute, studying with the Iyengar family and assisting in medical classes since 1997. I also continue my studies with Advanced teachers in Europe and the USA, constantly enriching my practice and teaching. Yoga integrates the body, mind, and heart when we devote ourselves consistently over time to our own personal growth.
The practice strengthens and interweaves the different parts of ourselves and brings the health, harmony, and happiness we crave in life.
Whether you are a beginner or long-term practitioner, I will give you concrete tools to overcome your challenges and improve your wellbeing through yoga therapy. Private classes are typically 60-90 minutes and are take place at Iyengar Yoga Zentrum Berlin or via Zoom. Book a free Discovery Call to see if it's right for you.
Private Classes support people suffering from skeletal-muscular problems like back or knee pain, circulatory disorders like hypertension, or nervous problems like headaches, insomnia.
