FAVORITE QUOTE: "Be the change you wish to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi

FUN FACT: "Chatarangas used to be my greatest enemy. Or maybe when I was 19 and in college and told I was getting deployed to Iraq but was totally ecstatic about it because I was flunking out of NJIT anyway. But when I got back home I no longer took school for granted and rocked it by graduating cum laude."
 
MOST EMBARASSING YOGA MOMENT: "Probably during my yoga teacher training when I shared that I used to call the middle part my chest my scrotum instead of my sternum. And probably all the times I slur my words while teaching class and pretend I make perfect sense. Or maybe that one time I farted. Who knows, I lost count."

DESCRIBE YOUR YOGA STYLE AND TEACHING BACKGROUND: "Power vinyasa all the way with a touch of calm and ease, a dash of Army, a spritz of zen, a shower of empowerment, and a dollop of tea tree oil. I graduated with my 200hour certification from the awesome HYRTT in Garwood in 2014 - a Baptiste-style hot vinyasa methodology. In 2015, certified with Kidding Around Yoga in NYC to teach those good ole youngins, prenatal certified in 2016, and Reiki Master 2017. And lastly, I'm a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) through Yoga Alliance and continuing my studies with Yoga Journal Business of Yoga, and continuous self-study to keep things hot and fresh."
 
You may find yourself consistently in “GO” mode, constantly busy, having no time, usually in a rush, forever realizing that “it never ends…,” and your mind never taking a break from it all. It can wear you down and with enough of that you can experience burn-out, low energy, and regular fatigue. Restorative yoga brings its own challenges in that you hold stretch poses for minutes at a time, yet comfortably with the use of props to enhance flexibility gently. It exercises the mind to find stillness and to stop the constant thought chatter. Restore, rejuvenate, and relax!
