As a result of her belief that yoga and holistic fitness is for every body and everybody, she set about building a center that offers classes suitable for all levels of yoga, beginner to advanced, as well as meditation, barre, Pilates, Ayurveda, personal training, private and small-group instruction. Coming from a place of her years of experience in corporate training and as an adjunct instructor she developed and teaches, along with a staff of six experienced and well-educated yogis, both 200 and 500 Hour Yoga Alliance certification programs, as well as developing and teaching continuing education for yoga teachers, workshops, series classes, and master classes.
