This all influenced her career decisions.  She went on to study Human Performance Science at Adelphi University.

She’s been a fitness model and acted on TV and in a movie.  She opened Sweet Harvest Superfood Cafe during the pandemic to bring gluten free and vegan food to the community.  But she also experiences chronic pain and migraines.

Tai Chi / Qi Gong

My love for learning and experiencing Tai Chi began some 30 years ago. Originally drawn to the martial arts, I had the good fortune of meeting and training with several masters in the art!  As training progressed, it became clear to me that Tai Chi is way more than just a martial art.  In 2010 I completed the Integral Institute of Qigong and Tai Chi 200 hour teacher training program that is focused on sharing the profound health and well-being benefits of Tai Chi and Qigong.  Since then I have continued a teaching practice at Dutchess Community College, Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, Community TCE (Tai Chi Easy) classes in New Paltz NY, Valley Vista assisted living, and private lessons/workshops as requested. 
Come and join me for a truly integral experience.  You will learn simple forms based on the time tested principles of mindfulness, alignment, structural integration, and relaxation.  Following these principles you can quickly access the benefits regardless of your experience level and feel great!
