Hi there!

My name is Tina and I believe yoga can transform your life.

Yoga allows one to tune into the body's intuition and helps harmonize at the gross and subtle layers of consciousness. I was first intrigued with movement and body mechanics with Indian classical bharatanatyam dance as a child and then different types of yoga and somatic therapy.

Clinical research documents the proven benefits of yoga when using it for a range of health conditions. Research shows that yoga has been successful with: improving mood, reducing stress hormones, inducing the relaxation responsealleviating side-effects of cancer treatment and more.  

I have been teaching yoga for over ten years and am a  graduate of  Maryland University of Integrative Health's first cohort of the first Yoga Therapy Master of Science program in the US.  I am a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists as C-IAYT and ERYT-500.

I focus on individual yoga therapy sessions that offer full postural and breath assessment which help uncover any musculoskeletal imbalance that may be contributing to pain or discomfort. I use the tools of yoga postures, breathing techniques and meditation and work in partnership with clients to set goals and support your journey to increased health and well-being.

I currently work with individual clients at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

In addition, I offer customized workshops  for employee wellness and stress reduction at organizations small and large. Find more information at: http://www.embodiedworkplace.com/
