Welcome to YogaBright. Who are we? We is me: a certified yoga instructor, MELT Method 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, discovered that they liked each other, and YogaBright is the result.

The Classes page lists my current yoga and MELT offerings. I teach primarily in lower Westchester, including Yonkers, Tuckahoe, Eastchester, Scarsdale, New Rochelle, and more; in-home and Zoom private sessions are also available. Whether teaching a challenging, carefully curated asana class, a soothing Restorative practice, a MELT roller class, or an adapted Chair Yoga class for seniors, 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 body and mind, check out the Yoga Science Research Guide. Here you can access easy-to-read summaries of peer-reviewed published studies culled from medical journals and online data bases. I’ll be searching through decades of material to find informative, high-quality studies to share with you, so this is a very much a work in progress.
