I used to think that Yoga was something my parents did to embarrass me in front of my friends in junior high.. But 20 years ago, recovering from a back injury, I began practicing asana and discovered something I had been seeking for years: the manifestation of meditation through motion. Over the years, I developed a signature style which integrates the breath based flow of Ashtanga and precision of Iyengar into a deep, sweaty and transformative mind/body experience. Opening Kula was my attempt to bring a little California vibe to the mean streats of NYC. Abundant love and thanks to the Kula family who have mad this a REAL kula or intentional community – as well as the coolest hang out in the world for my three daughters, who will no doubt find my excruciatingly embarrassing in about 10 years.
