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 grew up with yoga philosophy as shared by my parents and 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 response, alleviating side-effects of cancer treatment and more.
I have been teaching yoga for over ten years in varied settings 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 currently work with individual clients at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center with patients undergoing cancer treatment, recovering from cancer and their caregivers . At Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (Dr. Loren Fishman's medical practice), I use therapeutic yoga for chronic pain management of herniated disks, stenosis, rotator cuff injury, scoliosis and more.
In addition, I offer customized workshops for employee wellness and stress reduction at organizations small and large. Find more information here: http://www.embodiedworkplace.com/.
