In Spanish there is beautiful refrain, “Se hace el camino al andar,” or “one makes the path by walking.” In this way I hope to serve others by offering an integrated practice and experience of Yoga as I have practiced and understood it. Yoga practice not only as an instrument towards liberation– but as liberation itself – in the tradition of Jivamukti. An instrument to help us learn to be more receptive in order to nourish our highest potential – Yoga transforms the physical body all the way to the internal layers of energy and consciousness to shake and shape us into magic of Now.

As a teacher I have a passionate interest in esoteric yoga philosophy as applied to precise alignment in Asanas, and the flowing meditation of linking breath and movement. I give thanks and praise to the contributions of Jivamukti’s Sharon & David and the Jivamukti method, along with my amazing mentor Rima Rabbath for her unconditional love support and inspiration.

My New York Jiva Roots

A vigorous Jivamukti Open Class (all levels). From 2009-2015 I had the privilege to experience daily practice during some iconic, and I dare say esoteric years at our center on Broadway in New York City. In this 95 minute session I pay homage and praise to that journey and some of the gifted teachers that work to give the practice resonance and light. I hope to share the magic and potential of this exciting method.
