Wellness Travel Guide

travel is about being open to new experiences: new environments, new foods and new people.

While working in the stressful environments of advertising and finance, I started a yoga practice that benefitted my mind as much as my body, making me more patient and receptive. In an effort to help other people find this quality, I pursued a yoga teacher training and in 2005 received my 200-Hour certification from Alison West at Yoga Union. I have studied various types of yoga with numerous teachers in New York City, including restorative yoga with Judith Hanson Lasater and meditation with Sharon Salzberg. I began to set aside time for my practice wherever I was in the world and found I was able to more fully experience places like Nepal, Cambodia, South Africa and Australia. As a Well-Being Travel Specialist, certified through The Travel Institute, leading wellness travelers on a healthy getaways is fulfilling and energizing for all.
