Yoga is for Everyone
Over the years, I’ve had many teachers and studied many styles of Yoga. My most influential teachers have been Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. David Simon.
I teach everyone how to live Yoga on and off the mat bringing ancient techniques, wisdom and the essence of Yoga philosophy into their daily lives.
My style of teaching is for everyone whether you’ve been practicing Yoga for many years or it is your first time. The lectures I give are inspiring and life-transforming.
I am the author of many Yoga manuals and workbooks on Health and Wellness. In addition, I have produced, directed and starred in 7 Yoga DVDs: Yoga for Weight Loss, Yoga for Firefighters and Athletes, Zen and Yoga, Creative Yoga, Breathe Move Meditate, Sun Moon Series, and Sun Salutations for Everyone (with Chair Yoga).
Over the years I have taught Fitness and Wellness programs to the Navy Seals as well as the Fire Fighters of New York City and New Jersey after September 11th, 2001 to provide long term support for them and their families. For 15 years, I wrote a bi-monthly column about Yoga for Firelife.com, the largest website community for Fire fighters around the world. I was also honored to have been awarded Executive and Professional Woman of the Year for 2012 by the National Association of Professional Women.
In 1993, I founded The American Yoga Academy, a Yoga Teacher Training School, headquartered in Summit, New Jersey. I am also a Professor of Asian Studies at Seton Hall University, teaching one of the most popular courses on campus “Zen and Yoga.” I had the honor of co-creating with Drs. Deepak Chopra and David Simon The Chopra Center Yoga Program, and also serve on the Advisory Board at the Chopra Center for Well Being.
