My Yoga Journey...

My yoga journey began in 2001, I took many yoga classes throughout Bergen and Hudson counties in NJ. I then met Charlotte Stone in her studio in Teaneck NJ. Her warmth, knowledge and kind, compassionate heart resonated with me...in a very deep way. I loved her style of teaching, and felt safe in her presence (I had back surgery 17 years ago and have some limitations in my back/spine).

In 2005, I decided to take Charlotte's Yoga teacher training program. It seemed quite a challenge at that time to commit to a 200 hr program, but went ahead. I had no desire to actually teach yoga, but felt it would enhance my health in all ways (strength/flexibility, emotional and spiritual health). When I decided to take the 200 hr yoga teacher training course, I initially had doubts I could teach due to my back limitations.

Charlotte encouraged me to look within, and find the answer for myself. I feel structural Yoga is so honoring to me as an individual, and I was able to adapt and feel good about my practice. After many months of study, and practice with Charlotte and the other students I graduated from the program and felt I wanted to share what I learned. I began subbing a few yoga classes for friends, who were teachers. I fell in love with teaching and sharing what I learned from Charlotte.

I love the fact that I can teach a class to many levels of students and offer a safe experience for all. On a personal note: I am a happier, more grounded individual, and for that I will always be grateful.

With great love and respect!
