She has since been certified and specializes in Yin yoga, Restorative yoga, Therapeutic yoga, Sound Bathing and VST (Vibrational Sound Therapy). She runs Yin and Sound Bath workshops regularly.
Her focus is on healing the physical body while relieving emotional and mental stress through mindful awareness to the breath in coordination with gentle movements, correct alignment, sound and vibration.
She has experience teaching chair yoga, aqua yoga, beginner, intermediate and advanced alignment based classes, as well as gentle flow, yin, restorative, therapeutic classes and self-massage techniques.
She regularly teaches classes and Sound Bathing workshops throughout the community and was a featured teacher at the 2015 Rochester Yoga Festival.

She strongly believes yoga to be a deeply healing practice that should be made accessible to every body.
