Group and Individual Yoga Therapy
Years ago, I stepped into a yoga class feeling weary and anxious in the aftermath of my husband's life-threatening illness and my daughter's departure for college. I left that class with a sense of calm and well-being I had not felt in a long time. I have been captivated by yoga and its ability to transform lives ever since.
I became a yoga teacher in 2008 and began teaching in 2010. I wrote a guide to yoga for The New York Times, where I worked as an editor for many years and where I still teach yoga and meditation classes as part of the company's wellness program. Eventually I left journalism to pursue a master of science degree in yoga therapy at Maryland University of Integrative Health. I got that degree, but I will never stop being a student of the ancient healing tradition of yoga.
In addition to teaching corporate wellness programs,
I teach yoga-based movement and meditation to patients in recovery at the Addiction Institute of Mount Sinai in New York. I also teach group yoga and meditation classes for the Prehab physical therapy clinic in New York.

for Yoga and Meditation
Yoga builds strength, improves physical function, promotes ease of movement and improves balance. And that's only the beginning. A regular yoga practice can help relieve physical, mental and emotional pain, allowing you to experience lasting well-being and good health.
I offer live yoga classes, yoga therapy and guided breath-based meditation via Zoom. I work with hospitals, corporations and private yoga studios. I can tailor yoga or meditation sessions for you and your employees, colleagues or associates as part of a team-building or wellness program.
I also work with individuals to develop a customized yoga practice that takes into account their preferences and priorities.
Individualized Yoga Therapy
If you are looking for a new natural approach to help with a physical or mental health condition, you've come to the right place.
Yoga therapy combines traditional yoga and the latest biomedical research to create an individualized healing practice that includes movement, breathing techniques, meditation, and other mind-body techniques.
A growing body of scientific research shows that therapeutic yoga can help relieve symptoms of many health conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke recovery, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, traumatic brain injury, fibromyalgia, migraines, substance use disorder, anxiety, depression, insomnia and trauma.
As a certified yoga therapist, I am specially trained to help individuals manage pain and other chronic symptoms, so they can move better, feel better, and get back to enjoying their life.
A yoga therapy session with me will include a personalized intake and assessment and a plan of care designed to meet your goals.
