Yoga, Fitness & Nutrition
Yoga, fitness, and nutrition: it is a holistic approach to creating a healthy lifestyle that is not just a short-term fix to lose weight - it's a way of life! It works because you enjoy it, it works because you feel good, and it works because you feel and see results in your strength, in your flexibility, and in your mindset.
I have always loved the adrenaline rush of aerobic activity, but when I began practicing law, I needed something to help me ease stress as well. Yoga became a lifeline for me - it helped me to keep my body strong, nimble, injury-free and kept me in a positive mental space.
After practicing yoga for 15 years, I decided that I wanted to share my love for it with everyone I knew, so I became certified to teach at Yogaworks in NYC, world-renowned for its alignment-based training. I taught in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Montauk, NY, and then started to dream about opening my own studio. In 2015, that dream became a reality when I opened Here&Now Yoga+Body in Scarsdale, creating a space that welcomed anyone and everyone who wanted to breathe, move, and get stronger together. Due to the pandemic, I had to close Here&Now, but I am so grateful to the amazing community of teachers and students with whom I had the honor to practice regularly.
When one door closes, another opens: with the closing of the studio, I had the opportunity to delve into another passion - nutrition! I earned my certification in Nutrition and Healthy Living from Cornell University and am so excited to share my knowledge to help you live the healthy lifestyle that you want to live.
Fitness and nutrition go together like peanut butter and jelly (or I prefer peanut butter with bananas!) so to see and feel positive changes, we need both! I believe that it is never too late to make healthy changes and that Yoga and Fitness are for everyone. My sessions, whether you choose yoga, strength training, or a combination of the two, focus on building strength and flexibility, both mentally and physically. While incorporating your fitness goals, nutrition consultations focus on developing a sustainable plan that fits into your daily life. Once you have a plan, you will feel more confident and empowered to take on your goals and live your best life!
