Becoming a student of yoga changed me so much that I eventually left Wall Street to start a premier Washington, D.C. studio, Boundless Yoga Studio, which built a lasting community of people integrating the practice of yoga into their daily lives. I started it in 2002 and closed it in 2013.
Practicing yoga can have broad and sometimes surprising implications. The practice offers a rare chance to slow down and observe yourself, mentally, physically, and emotionally. You challenge yourself in postures, and let your mind go in the postures. It's these observations that transform into the awareness of how you relate to all other aspects of your life.
The poses -- many of which were established thousands of years ago -- organize, stimulate, soothe, and stabilize the body so that it can function optimally through a lifetime. Because of the changes yoga can prompt, it’s crucial to find a serious teacher who teaches the poses correctly, thoroughly, and compassionately, and who is still a student herself or himself. There are safe and unsafe ways to practice yoga, and when learned the right way, yoga can have lifelong benefits to your physical and mental health.
I teach four and sometimes five times a week at two YogaWorks locations, 14th Street and Dupont. I also run a rolling admission RYT-200 and RYT-500 Yoga Teacher Apprenticeship Program. Please contact me if you’re interested!
