I’m a second generation teacher and am totally dedicated to helping my students develop their full potential.
I grew up a happy-go-lucky kid with a taste for creativity and movement; my earliest memories include frolicking in a ‘Sounding and Bounding’ class at our local recreation center where I danced, played the recorder, and expressed my silly side with a purpose! I began playing the clarinet in the fifth grade, and fell head over heels in love with music, eventually attending Interlochen Arts Academy for my final years of high school, and elite music schools for my Bachelors and Masters Degrees in clarinet performance. Along the way I fell in love with yoga and music therapy, securing certifications in both disciplines, allowing me to share my passions with other people.
Teaching is my passion! For the last twenty years I’ve enjoyed teaching music and yoga to folks of all ages, levels and abilities. My father is a professor, and I knew at a young age that I was blessed to be born into a family that valued education, the arts, and intellectual pursuit. I started teaching music while in high school, taught college level music for a decade, and continue to enjoy heartfelt work with my private clarinet students at the South Shore Conservatory in Massachusetts.
During my years of high-level training as a classical musician, I gradually became fascinated with the connection between my mind & body. I began studying yoga in 1996 as a means to facilitate greater physical ease during my music performance career, naturally expanding into teaching yoga almost a decade ago.
In both yoga and music my guiding principle is the same: to serve as a guide to aid each student in realizing their own inner teacher. The result is a fun process of self-exploration, resulting in empowered students!
