Personal History:

For almost ten years, I’ve been teaching a kick-butt yoga class that focuses on alignment and breath to open your body through a creative sequence, designed to make you smile as much as you’ll sweat. Before I became a certified teacher, I stumbled upon yoga while producing a fitness video for MTV. As a hard-core runner, I never thought about flexibility, but the first time I stepped on the mat changed all that. Yoga allowed me to stop and breathe — probably for the first time in my whole life. The physical element of the practice made my body feel great. But more important was the effect learning to meditate had on my mental health. Since that first day, I believe that my daily “cushion sitting” is the sole reason I’ve been able to find peace inside myself — it's allowed me to face my biggest challenges head on: my mother’s suicide, my father’s bankruptcy, and my own body issues.

More and more, I noticed that my students would lift weights after doing yoga. This inspired me to develop Xen Strength and create a modern twist on yoga that truly meets my client’s needs.

Workout Philosophy: In one hour, you can be sweaty, or you can be sorry!
