I believe we can all thrive and come out not only ahead but transformed. I train individuals not only for the moment but through a process and understand what it means to facilitate and coach a highly functioning way of life.
I am a former Wall Streeter, First VP, 16 year Bond Trading Floor Economist and Strategist with a Masters in Economics from NYU and a B.A. from Rutgers University. I use my experience in the field to teach others how to use exercise and yoga to be their best even in the toughest environments. My formula is simple: strengthen the body, steady the mind.
I am a personal trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, also certified by Jillian Michaels completing both her BodyShred certification and studies in LifeStyle Coaching. I am also certified by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America and influenced by the techniques of celebrity Romanian trainer Radu.
I am also trained in Ashtanga and Sivananda Yoga. I was certified by Beryl Bender Birch's Hard and Soft Yoga Institute and the International Sivananda Vedanta Center in Neyyar Dam, India. I have trained with world renowned teachers in India, Europe. and the U.S. includiing the now deceased Sri K. Pattabi Jois. I ran two NYC Marathons, climbed Mt. St. Helen's, survived 9/11 and the Indian Tsunami. I have met the Dali Lama and have been blessed by spiritual leaders. My youngest student was an infant; my oldest was 90 years old.
I am here for you to share my wisdom and expertise on fitness, health, and life. I come equipped with knowledge, compassion, and understanding to educate with tools to create health and healthy life skills and practices and to help nurture in you a seed of commitment to oneself.
What some happy tennis students say:
