Before moving to Europe, I was an actor and model in NYC to teach and study Yoga.

In January 2006, I founded Ashtanga Yoga. I was lead to San Francisco to do a 200 hour Teacher Training with Larry Schultz. My guiding force came from Reed Taylor, my first Ashtanga Rocket teacher. I came from a body riddled with injury and with cross training Pilates and Yoga. I was able to do things with my body I never imagined. Thanks to Yoga and Pilates, I was able to develop the strength and flexibility mentally, emotionally and physically. In 2006, I began my practice and never stopped.

I began traveling training in Rocket Ashtanga throughout the US and Europe. When I landed in Florence Italy, I opened the studio 19r Yoga Pilates. The past 3 years, I have dedicated myself to the creation of a Yoga community evolving form a small friendly community to an International Teacher Training destination. I am now holding 4 '200 hour teacher trainings' a year as well as Rocket 1 and 2 trainings throughout the year. Our Yoga facilitators are Donovan Hicks, Hanna Dreschel, Shari Hochberg, and myself.

In a world that we find ourselves constantly working, it is nice to know I do what I love. 
I thank you for your time and look forward to meeting you...
