my training

My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in yoga, meditation, holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health.  I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.


I received my 200-hour certification through  The American Yoga Academy.  Prompted by the desire to deepen my training, I went on to earn my 500-hour credentials through Yoga Sutra for Life,  Yoga as Medicine Level 1 with Dr. Timothy McCall and Elina Moreira McCall,  Stress Management Specialist training through the Dr. Dean Ornish Heart Disease Reversal Program Element Specialist Training Retreat and my kids foundation training with Always-at-Aum.    With over a decade of experience, I enjoy working with children, adults and senior citizens.  I have had the pleasure of taking classes with Eliana Moreira McCall, Dr. Timothy McCall, Dharma Mitra, Swami Buaja, Gurmukh, Rangitha Sandeep, Claire Diab, among others.  I am influenced by the tireless efforts of Debby Kaminsky and her work to help children through her non-profit organization, the Newark Yoga Movement.  And Tao Porchon-Lynch, who in her mid-90's, continues to share the joys of yoga with her infectious youthful spirit.


I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. Mark Hyman; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
