Whether I'm navigating the streets of New York or a whittled path in the forest, hot yoga taught me to draw strength and happiness from myself rather than my circumstances.
A good teacher sees herself in her students and uses that perspective to cultivate compassion, understanding, and commitment. I am dedicated to helping change lives – my own included - in the hot yoga room, and I am honored to be part of the Riverflow community of Hot Yoga Teachers. In fact I love it so much, I travel from my home in Brooklyn to teach here. Outside the yoga room, I am a writer, cyclist, hiker, urban explorer, music-lover and adventure-traveler.

I’ve always been healthy and active but living the “no pain, no gain” mentality left me barely able to walk let alone enjoy my life.
During my recovery, I discovered hot yoga at Riverflow and haven’t turned back. I was amazed by the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional benefits that left me wanting moreafter each 90-minute, sweat-dripping class. I wanted to give back to others - corporate life was not so fulfilling. I joined Riverflow Hot Yoga Warrior Teacher Training and it was life-changing.
I am so blessed to give the gift of hot yoga to others and to be a part of the wonderful yoga community at Riverflow. I love that I can share my yoga wisdom and strength on this never-ending journey with my beautiful daughter as she grows up.

I stumbled upon hot yoga while recovering from mercury poisoning several years ago, to sweat my way out of chelation therapy.

For 30+ years, running was the only exercise that seemed to provide a much needed physical and emotional outlet. That is until I entered the rooms of Riverflow.
Both practice and teacher training have been transformative-physically, mentally, and spiritually. I love that the practice of Hot Yoga is such a metaphor for life. Standing still between the poses prepares me for stillness and quiet in a busy world so that I can be present to the messages that come my way. When I stop struggling in poses or correct and go deeper, I am reminded to “let go” of my struggles outside of the room. When I lock and lift muscles and limbs, I internalize my strength and value. Staying in the room and breathing renews my faith and hope. I carry lessons from the studio with me throughout my day and welcome the opportunity to share these as a teacher.

Hot Yoga keeps my body in health, my mind in peace, and my heart in love…”
I came to Riverflow four years ago. After I took my very first class with Rhonda, I loved it instantly!! I was so happy that I could get to the studio and practice my hot yoga. As a result, I found the most wonderful person in the world who needed me the most and looked at me in the mirror through my own eyes!
This is how my journey began. I silently practiced to the best of my ability and realized that all I needed to do was just to show up and do it over and over again. After awhile, your body finds its natural alignment. Somehow, everything gets balanced and you find your true happy self. The results are amazing.
My journey continues… Today, I am your Hot Yoga Teacher! “Stand on your mat! Look into your Eyes! Smile! You are about to do something amazing for YOURSELF!!” This is my beautiful gift to you! What you will do with it is up to you... I am here to guide and encourage. It is my great honor to be your Teacher. Let’s begin…

I discovered hot yoga on vacation, and I never looked back.
The stress relief, relaxation, rejuvenation, strength, balance, stability, endurance, flexibility, focus, concentration & meditation that I reached in every hot yoga class was forever changing; on any given day I found hot yoga to be a direct correlation to my life.
I found myself thinking, "I want to feel like that all day, everyday, not just in a hot yoga room."
So I began teacher training with enthusiasm & excitement and sure enough, it renewed my entire life. Teacher Training transformed my mind, body & spirit and put me in a positive, peaceful place.
I am passionate about everything I have learned, and I am honored to lead you through your practice and be part of your amazing transformation.
