As a former litigator in New York City for 10 years, I had a fast-paced living, but managed to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Understanding how powerful my life-routine was in maintaining my health, I eventually wanted to use my voice outside of the courtroom, to inspire others to become more balanced internally. I’d been practicing mindfulness, meditation and yoga as an attorney, so it was a natural turn of events for me to move toward the study of these Eastern practices so that I could become a more powerful force in teaching and helping others.
For nearly a decade now, I’ve helped thousands of New Yorkers, of all ages and social statuses, to become aware of unwanted or unhealthy habits and patterns in order to create healthier patterns which in turn, helps them to relate more skillfully to themselves and the world around them. By connecting internally through active attention training, body awareness, thought and emotion management, breath techniques and yoga, I provide others with tools to understand their inner minds, decode signals in the body, and feel more anchored to and in control of their inner world, health and well-being. And now, in groundbreaking studies, Western science is providing data to confirm these awe-inspiring results.
My teachings have been featured in Fitness Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, The New York Daily News, Style Bistro, Shine!, The Cardoza Jurist, Off the Blue Mat, The Beauty Bean and DNA Info New York. I have written on mindfulness, meditation and yoga for Mind, Body, Green, Elephant Journal and The Sweat Life, while my chapter on stress management was published in Cutting Edge Therapies for Autism, a book of healing treatments for children with autism and their parents. My work with the homeless in New York City was featured in the New York Daily News.
I am credentialed with advanced breath, mindfulness and meditation certifications, yoga certification, and accredited with Yoga Alliance’s advanced credentials, E-RYT 500. I studied in India and the U.S., and have led numerous trainings and workshops in New York City, in the corporate realm and privately.
