I have been to two classes and I have booked my third, I am so happy to have found my yoga studio home! The instructors are so kind and knowledgeable you can tell they are 100% about this lifestyle. I look forward to becoming a full time yogi. Thank you for your service Mindful You!
It all started when I was 5 years old, I was introduced to yoga while running around backstage in Spain at a Sting concert. My step dad was a sound engineer on tour with Sting who was practicing yoga with a yogi teacher by the name of Danny Paradise. I guess the spark was lit that day, and I've been drawn to yoga and all its wonderful benefits and studies since. I studied yoga in college at Penn State (2006-2008) and after years of working in marketing, primarily on Wall Street in New York City, I decided to become a yoga teacher. I taught my first class on December 1, 2015 to a group of adults at a co-working space. It was the first of 4 sessions on The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. Since then, I have taught hundreds of classes to students ages 4 to 90 and everyone in between. I have taught creative vinyasa flows, workshops and have had the opportunity to collaborate with DJ’s and to teach at yoga festivals. I have taught large group classes to one-on-one lessons, and have worked with children, corporate professionals, CEO’s and other executives in my community.
