Instructor RYT 200
I found my way to yoga in a somewhat unlikely path: through the P90X fitness program DVD's. Thursdays meant the 90 minute Power Yoga DVD. Through the course of my 90 days, that DVD was the beacon of peace and release in a very strenuous week of heavy lifting and plyometric moves. That was in 2009. Since then, I've received my RYT 200 certification in The Barkan Method of Hot Yoga from Yoga Spa in Westchester, New York and spent nearly 1,000 hours instructing students of all ages and levels through the Hot Yoga sequence. My practice has taught me not just physical discipline but also offered me a beyond-needed mental release from my jam-packed professional and personal schedule. Since I'm naturally high strung, somewhat boisterous, and action oriented, it's always a pleasure when a student tells me they find my voice peaceful and relaxing (biggest compliment ever!) and my instruction easy to follow so I strive to create an experience for my students that delivers gratifying mental release as well as a stimulating physical experience.
