Now I see the secret of making the best person: it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth. --Walt Whitman
I first came to Block Island in utero in 1969 and have been spending summers here ever since. Block Island has become my home and a place that provides balance from my winter months in NYC. Some of my first classes were with Jimmy Reale in the early 1990s, and I have been a student to the incomparable Sue Littlefield since she began teaching on the Island. Beginning Summer, 2019, I will be taking over Sue’s weekly classes in the Kripalu tradition at St. Andrew’s Parish. From 2007-to the present day, I have been teaching at Elevation studio. In my classes I offer a precise vinyasa that challenges both the mind and the body. I strive for intelligent sequencing, honesty of intention, a variety of poses, and graceful instruction and assistance. My teaching is playful and inquisitive and seeks to guide each student to learn more about their bodies and themselves. Please contact me with any questions regarding my group classes, or private classes. I can come to you or host at my home on Lakeside Drive.
