I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be teaching a 3-week beginner workshop series at Joschi NYC (this is the studio where I did my teacher training). The three, hour-long classes are Wednesday nights from 7:30-8:30pm and are designed to be taken as a series, as each class will build on information and poses from the class before. If you have never tried yoga before, this is a perfect, non-intimidating place to start.  As always, check out the Classes Page for all the details. Hope to start 2012 with you in this or my 4-week open-level classes at the Brooklyn Zen Center!


I really enjoyed November’s Sunday evening classes at the Brooklyn Zen Center, that I’ve decided to do it again (with all new themed classes) in the New Year! Details below and on the Classes Page. Spread the news far and wide! Hope to see you there!

All Levels Welcome!!

I just posted about about being thankful, so I’d be remiss if I didn’t publicly thank everyone who came to my four-week open level yoga series at the Brooklyn Zen Center. It is a beautiful space, made all the more so by the wonderful effort and presence of my friends and students. The series ended last night with a  restorative themed class (and cupcakes!).

I’m already thinking about what’s next and putting together plans for a January series at the Brooklyn Zen Center. It would be the same day and times, Sundays from 7-8pm. Any input on what you’d like to focus on will be incorporated as much as possible (more advanced? more basic? more props? more abs, balance, backbends?, more breathing exercises? more relaxation?)

As always stay turned to the Classes page for all the updates and details, but I’ll no doubt post more about the next series soon.

I’ve taught my first two kindergarten yoga classes this week and have my first preschool class coming up, I’ve also been volunteering at several different yoga classes, including one for autistic middle school kids. It has certainly given me many different perspectives on yoga. I’m still processing it all, so expect a post on it at some point in the near future.

It so easy as a yoga teacher and as a yoga student to feel like you “get it.” As a student, I’m totally guilty of cherry picking the classes on any given schedule that “sound like me,” beginners class? boring, I know all that stuff. “Boot Camp Yoga?” Sounds punishing. I gravitate towards the same sort of Vinyasa classes no matter what studio or gym I’m going to. And most of the time I enjoy it, and there’s always something to learn, especially from trying new teachers. But when I do branch out and try something totally different, even when I don’t enjoy it, is when I learn the most.

While I process all that I’m learning from all of my new teaching experiences, more opportunities are coming in! Starting next week I’ll be teaching at The Moving Studio in Downtown/Fort Greene Brooklyn every Friday morning from 8:00-9:00am. I’ll also be subbing Monday nights from 8:30-9:30pm on November 21, 28, and December 5th. The price is sooo reasonable ($10/class) and the view from the 30th floor  is amazing.  Between this and my Sunday night classes at the Brooklyn Zen Center, you have many opportunities to take affordable classes are gorgeous locations. More info on everything here.

I haven’t posted in a while, but it isn’t because I haven’t because I have nothing to say about yoga, in fact, quite the opposite, my silence has been in part because I’ve been busy setting up exciting new teaching opportunities. Here’s a brief run-down of what and where I’ll be teaching starting this Sunday!

  1. My four-week  open-level Vinyasa series starts this Sunday at 7pm at the Brooklyn Zen Center and happens every Sunday night until Nov. 20th.
  2. On Tuesday Nov. 1, I’ll start teaching twice week after school yoga to Kindergarteners at Brownsville Leadership Charter School with Fit4Life Kids.
  3. On Friday Nov. 4, I’ll start teaching two weekly morning yoga classes to pre-schoolers at Hudson Guild Community Center as a team leader with New York Cares
  4. *coming soon: an early morning weekday class at The Moving Studio in Brooklyn.
As always, check the Classes Page for all the details, and check back here, I have lots of ideas for blog posts and my next “Yoga Explained” video.

I’m very excited about my next scheduled classes!

I’m renting a beautiful space (see below) at the Brooklyn Zen Center in Park Slope for a 4-week open-level vinyasa series. Sunday nights 7-8pm Oct. 30, Nov. 6, 13, 20.

I was feeling so inspired that I made this fall-themed art project/flyer last night. Hope to see you there ( and as always, check out the classes page for more info)
