I’ve always loved helping people from different backgrounds get on the same page.
Bonus points if I can achieve this while inspiring them to live joyfully, empower them with new perspectives, and make them laugh at the same time.
After earning a BFA in Acting from NYU’s Tisch School of the Art and nearly a decade of experience training and teaching yoga across the globe, I developed a knack for fostering community engagement by making wellness interactive and fun. So, it was no surprise (to some more than others) that in 2017 I married my lifelong passions of storytelling and mindful movement to establish my first claim to fame: Drunk Yoga®—“intoxicating” yogic convention by infusing it with the social ritual of a happy hour. As Drunk Yoga® grew to international acclaim, and I began professionally speaking and consulting on the art of community engagement, I discovered how to translate the very same theatrical devices that make yoga feel like a party into a methodology that teaches leaders how to refine their own performance skills so that they may curate more effective workplace gatherings.
