Why are you so passionate about Vinyasa Yoga?
"I am thrilled to share the gift of Vinyasa yoga with my students and clients.
Vinyasa yoga synchronizes physical movement with breath. It is often called flow yoga, because the poses and mindful breathing are like a dance.
It helps a person be more mindful of their body and thoughts on the mat, as well as taking that mindfulness with them afterward.
I also offer guided meditations.
What do you offer your private clients?
"I love working with my private clients, putting together sequences just for them that help them with what they are looking to improve – flexibility, relaxation, strength – and also with what they might not realize could be improved – posture and mindfulness.
I am excited when I see them smile as they achieve a pose that they have been struggling with, or realize they can do something now that they couldn’t do before.
Teaching yoga in private homes is much different than a public studio class. You really get to know your clients and their lives and you are so proud of their accomplishments.
I think the private setting lets them feel more comfortable. They have the ‘home court advantage’, which puts them at ease. I am very grateful for them."

"Vinyasa Yoga teaches you to move and breathe mindfully.
I love what I do, creating customized sequences that both challenge and encourage others to try new poses, have fun and achieve greater peace."
I hear you teach yoga to Scuba Divers?
I am working with a scuba shop in Greenwich to develop a yoga program for scuba divers.
Technical diving is strenuous exercise. Tanks and gear are heavy and diving works a lot of muscles. The combination can be a strain for those who don’t exercise regularly. Yoga helps them maintain a better balance of strength and flexibility.
It also helps with breathing while diving. The only air you have to breathe is what you take with you under water. I have seen a lot of divers end the dive early, because they finished their tank. I have improved my air consumption while scuba diving because of Vinyasa yoga.
Yoga is a fantastic complement to other sports and physical activities."
I hear you also are teaching yoga to Rock Climbers?
"I teach yoga
Tuesday and Wednesday
Rock Climb Fairfield, at the Sportsplex in Fairfield.
While in most studios, students tend to be young females with an established, regular practice; at the Rock Climb gym, my students are all ages, and increasingly more male. And while they are strong from climbing, they are looking to increase their flexibility, while still having fun.
It actually stretches me mentally to put together stimulating sequences for this dynamic group."
