Upon completing my yoga teacher training I wanted to start teaching right away. I approached Recreation Center 54 and started volunteering once a week to teach a free beginners yoga class as part the of Shape Up NYC program. The classes started out small but now they are packed every week. This has become one of my favorite classes to teach and I look forward to it every week. As a result of this class I was offered a job teaching yoga to Seniors at John Jay Park for the Parks Department.
