I started practicing yoga 10 years ago after many years of practicing martial arts. I wanted to find something softer but still challenging that would support my new lifestyle and career. I stepped into my first yoga class and fell in love immediately! Over the years I practiced many styles of yoga, including ashtanga, iyengar and sivananda.
My first TT was Ashtanga, back in Tel Aviv, right after my first pregnancy. I practiced the full primary series during my second pregnancy. Here in the US I have completed hatha yoga TT with HYI and vinyasa TT with Les Leventhal right here at Bala Yoga!
I teach ashtanga, vinyasa and hatha yoga and the thing I love the most is challenging students and reminding them how strong they are. I encourage students to come to the mat every day! Even if its just for a few minutes, for 3 of their favorite poses, or a couple of sun salutes. I strongly believe that daily practice is important and want to encourage everyone to explore the discipline of self-practice.
