Dance & Yoga Experience: I have taught yoga in NYC and Seattle to accomplished athletes, individuals undergoing chemotherapy, moms-to-be, new parents and children, and everything in between. I’ve specialized in vinyasa, restorative, prenatal, and parent/child yoga. I love the way yoga meets every body where that body happens to be that day, and offers benefits to each body’s unique set of needs, goals and desires.
What do you like most about working at SGA? I love the range of ages that SGA serves, and I particularly love the priority that SGA gives to creating a positive, nourishing environment for growth.
Favorite Color: Red
Favorite Type of Dance: My first love has been vinyasa, the way the the body, mind and breath work as one with intention. I have also come to love the deep nourishment of restorative yoga.
Favorite Sport (other than dance or gymnastics): Tennis, which I grew up playing competitively and still love dearly.
Hobbies: In addition to also being an actor and proud mama to my son, Olivier, I love boating, traveling, reading a good novel, and discussing current events in French.
