. . . because the world can always use another smile
Welcome to YogaBright. Who are we? We is me: a certified yoga instructor, workshop leader, and Reiki practitioner from New York. Before I studied yoga, I worked for decades as an editor in publishing and advertising. Words met body and mind, they discovered that they liked each other, and YogaBright is the result.
The Yoga Classes page lists my current public classes. I teach at various locations in Westchester, including Yonkers, Scarsdale, and Mount Vernon; private sessions are also available. Whether teaching a soothing Restorative class, an adapted Chair Yoga class for seniors, or a challenging asana class, my goal is to help students learn to practice yoga efficiently, safely, and happily.
Yoga offers a pathway to improved health, confidence, and well-being. To learn more about the ways that yoga can help heal the body and mind, check out the Yoga Science Research Guide, a new addition to YogaBright. Here you can access easy-to-read summaries of peer-reviewed published studies culled from medical journals and online data bases. I am searching through decades of material to find informative, high-quality studies to share with you, so this is a work in progress. Check back regularly and watch the guide grow!
