Welcome to your Yoga journey on Staten Island! My belief is that anyone can do yoga. Whether you are a beginner, pregnant, a senior, disabled or someone who just wants to grow with their current practice, one must understand from the onset what can be gained through yoga. Those that practice yoga improve their physical strength, increase flexibility, increase lubrication of the joints, ligaments and tendons, naturally detoxify and massage the body and its organs, as well as attain mental clarity.
I teach a fusion of traditional Vinyasa flow and core strength fitness Yoga for a more physical workout, focusing on overall wellness which can be adapted for any shape, size and age. Postures are modified to accommodate those with physical ailments or special needs and focus on individual requirements.
I also teach gentle restorative Yoga, bringing the healing benefits of yoga to those who have been unable to take part in a routine class setting, such as senior citizens or the disabled. In this class, we will work from chairs, the wall or use props.
