NYC Baby!

Hi Everyone!

I am blessed to have the opportunity to be back in NYC on a very regular basis. What that means is that I get to teach in the city again!!!  What a gift it has been to be reunited with former students and colleagues.  In addition, my work off the yoga mat has enabled me to work with cool brands like LOLE and Molly Pennette to my amazing co-workers such as Jenna Wadkins and Hampton Kew.  See pictures below from the recent LOLE White Yoga Event at MOMA in NYC.  Colleen Saidman and Rodney Yee and Elena Brower were on point leading not one, but two inspiring classes to the packed house on a rainy Thursday night. Good, clean fun!

Back on the grid

Hi Everyone,

Long time no chat.  How are you? A lot has happened in my life since my last post.  It would take too long to explain other than to tell you I have been on a world-wide journey that changed my life on so many levels.   I am now back and a bit behind the times…namely on social media.  I have heard that web sites are old news…and maybe they are.  But, just in case you found me here, I wanted to be there for you:)  Alas, I do have a Facebook page and will get Instagram running one of these days:)

So where in the world am I?! At present, I am now dividing most of my time between NYC and Santa Barbara, CA.  I am still teaching lots and would love to see you.

Please email me at to get re-connected and put on my e-list for sub dates and retreats. On that note, get ready for some exciting news about a yoga + hiking, golf, and tennis retreat model of mine that’s about to hatch in Palm Springs, California. You are not gonna want to miss it!  Also, be sure to LIKE our new Facebook Page to stay up to date with our latest photos and events.

Hope to see you soon!
