In 2005 I attended a retreat at Ananda Ashram in Monroe, NY. I have named my business Ananda in honor of this magical place! It was there that I first encountered my teacher, Sri Dharma Mittra. I attended his meditation, and knew this was my path. The following year, I attended his teacher training at the Dharma Yoga Center in New York City and received my certification through the Yoga Alliance. I have been teaching ever since.
In 2018 I completed a 10 hour Back Care Immersion and in 2019 a 50 hour Experiential Anatomy course, both with Judith Hanson Lasater, Mary Richards and Lizzie Lasater. It is with this training, along with years of experience that I offer Therapeutic Yoga.
In 2017 I began my training in Reiki. In January 2020 I received the Reiki Master attunement in the Usui/Tibetan System of Natural Healing. As with many Reiki practitioners, I began getting intuitive messages. So, during quarantine I studied with Suzanne Giesemann in her offering of "Expand your Innate Mediumship Skills with Soul to Soul Communication".
