FAVORITE QUOTE: "Be the change you wish to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi

FUN FACT: "Chatarangas used to be my greatest enemy. Or maybe when I was 19 and in college and told I was getting deployed to Iraq but was totally ecstatic about it because I was flunking out of NJIT anyway. But when I got back home I no longer took school for granted and rocked it by graduating cum laude."
 
MOST EMBARASSING YOGA MOMENT: "Probably during my yoga teacher training when I shared that I used to call the middle part my chest my scrotum instead of my sternum. And probably all the times I slur my words while teaching class and pretend I make perfect sense. Or maybe that one time I farted. Who knows, I lost count."

DESCRIBE YOUR YOGA STYLE AND TEACHING BACKGROUND: "Power vinyasa all the way with a touch of calm and ease, a dash of Army, a spritz of zen, a shower of empowerment, and a dollop of tea tree oil. I graduated with my 200hour certification from the awesome HYRTT in Garwood in 2014 - a Baptiste-style hot vinyasa methodology. In 2015, certified with Kidding Around Yoga in NYC to teach those good ole youngins, prenatal certified in 2016, and Reiki Master 2017. And lastly, I'm a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) through Yoga Alliance and continuing my studies with Yoga Journal Business of Yoga, and continuous self-study to keep things hot and fresh."

FUN FACT: "I'm a craft beer affectionado. My husband and I have brewed 3 of our own batches of beer. The first one was horrible, the second was great, and the third was over fermented and extremely strong. I want to brew a saison next. I've also easily seen over 100 live concerts, my top 3 being 'Of Montreal' at the Roseland Ballroom (2008), 'Flaming Lips' at the House of Blues (2010), and Grizzly Bear/Santigold/the Flaming Lips at Colbchella on the Intrepid (2012)."
 
WHAT IS YOUR DEEPEST GOAL IN LIFE: "Being a good mother, wife, friend, and person in general."
 
WHAT IS YOUR TEACHING STYLE AND BACKGROUND: "Certified at the premier league of badassery...HYRTT 2014. I like to keep a light hearted approach to a power style flow. I want us all to work hard and get an amazing workout but I want us all to be smiling and having fun. I want to have a practice that has you leaving the studio feeling you accomplished something that wasn't available yesterday. I want to help you nail that pose to give you a win for today, this week, this month, forever...! They say that yoga starts from within, so let's start by being happy! If you skip out of my class with a huge smile on your face, I will feel I have done my job well."
FUN FACT: "I used to be lawyer, but now I'm a professor in one of New Jersey's top colleges with my PhD in Geology."

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF YOGA AND TEACHING BACKGROUND: "It's been said that my grounded teaching style is 'rock' solid :D. I received my teacher certification from Hot Yoga Revolution in 2014 and prefer a hot power vinyasa yoga practice."
