Certified Kids Yoga Teacher, Usui Holy Fire II Reiki Master & Holy Fire II Karuna Reiki® Master, Animal & Pet Reiki Master

Director of Administration & Registration and Contact Person

NAMASTE!  I am a co-owner of Inspired Yoga and Healing Center, and responsible for the administrative and sales related planning, programming, membership and registration for: Inspired Yoga and Healing Center, Rahini Yoga School and Meditation, Radiant Health Qigong of Long Island, Integrative Reiki Healing Center, and Bön Buddhism of Long Island.  I am the head coordinator for all teacher training programs, events and Buddhist related workshops offered at Inspired Yoga and Healing Center.​

I am a certified psychotherapist who has been practicing Holistic Psychotherapy through private practice for over 12 years.  In my private practice, with the additional use of Reiki, Energy Movements, Crystals, and Breathwork, I have been successful in guiding and helping people to overcome emotional barriers – focusing on ones spiritual path of self awareness and discovery.


When I first discovered Reiki, I fell in love with it, and I am now a Certified Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki Master, Holy Fire II Karuna Reiki Master, and an assistant Reiki teacher at our yoga studio.  I am also a children's yoga teacher, having received my Kids Yoga Certification in Kidding Around Yoga with Revered Sam Rudra Swartz & Amanda Adamczyk.  For me, working with kids is fun; they teach us, as much as we teach them! I am also Level 1 certified in "Mind of Clear Light Meditation."​

As an animal lover, I am a strong advocate of PETA and animal rights.  I am also very passionate about living an AHIMSA lifestyle by being a vegetarian and Lightworker, practicing yoga and loving kindness meditation, sharing Reiki and practicing Qigong.  I love to educate others on positive ways to improve health, how to create a balanced life, and how to feel calm, grounded and motivated. Shanti.
