I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher certification at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in western Massachusets in 2012. Kripalu yoga is a style of Hatha yoga that encourages compassionate self-awareness and nurtures personal growth. Kripalu yoga embraces asanas (postures), pranayama (breathwork) and meditation as tools to cultivate strength, flexibility, calm and focus. I offer yoga sessions to individuals and communities wherever and whenever people need it. I practice yoga every day and everywhere.

Evolution Pt & yoga

Evolution PT & Yoga is a thriving yoga studio in Burlington, Vermont offering community-oriented yoga, physical therapy, prenatal and family yoga, and yoga therapeutics for healthcare providers. Since relocating to Burlington, Vermont in 2016 I have been offering therapeutically-oriented yoga classes, workshops, and series at Evolution. As the Program Coordinator of the first-ever Evolution School of Yoga 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training I collaborated with co-lead trainers to bring a unique mission and vision to life.

 

Social Work and Yoga

I offer clients the opportunity to integrate yoga into social work treatment. Yoga postures, meditation and breathwork are tangible tools that clients learn to practice in the therapeutic space and apply to daily life in an effort to manage stress, anxiety, and trauma effects. In addition to my 200-hour yoga teacher training at The Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, I have also completed noteworthy continuing education programs with leaders in the field including Yoga and the Traumatized Body at The Trauma Center at JRI and Frontiers of Trauma Treatment at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. I have collaborated with University of Connecticut's Graduate School for Social Work to explore and advocate for Integrative Body-Mind-Spirit Social Work as an emerging framework in clinical practice, academia and research.

Yoga practices can be beneficial to professionals’ self-care routines, as well. Trauma exposure, vicarious trauma and burn-out are real and serious concerns for professionals. I integrate yoga into supervision in an effort to address such concerns and create sustainability in the work world. I have connected with institutions and organizations such as Columbia University School of Social Work, Manhattan Court for Innovation, and African Services Committee, facilitating self-care workshops in an effort to bring peace, calm, and focus to the professional mind and body.

 

Yoga for Athletes

I integrate yoga into cross-training regimens for athletes to assist in developing a healthy relationship with the body and to support an athlete in reaching her/his full potential. Athletics is a powerful, often competitive, and demanding space in which growth and development take place. Athletes can experience physical and mental challenges in the competitive and non-competitive sports world. Yoga is a practice that compliments strength-training, helps to develop greater flexibility, supports injury-prevention and cultivates focus – essential elements of an athlete’s training regimen.
