Izzy believes that self care is our our divine human privilege.
Every time she steps on her mat it's an experiment, an opportunity to learn something, whether it be finding her edge, breaking through habitual thought patterns, finding a moment of stillness, an exhale, perhaps a surrender and release.
Growing up, Izzy was a relentless athlete, with years of National competition in Rowing, Track and Field, and Gymnastics. She pushed her body and mind to the limits. Gifted with a mother who knew she'd need a little extra TLC, she attended her first Yoga class in 2004. In 2007 Izzy invested in her first Yoga teacher training with Gopi Kinnicutt. Since then she has studied with both International and Local teachers such as Shiva Rea, Dharma Mittra, Bonnie Argo, Jenny Sauer-Klein, Jason Nemer, Lynne Begier, Chanel Luck, Ana Forrest, Jennifer Reis, and more.
Izzy's classes are based on the premise of loving the way your body moves. She strives to teach from a place of self-empowerment from the ground up. She believes stability leads to the possibility of trying things you may never have thought possible. The poses will flow from one to the next inviting embodiment throughout the transitions.
In 2007 Izzy found a flyer for an AcroYoga workshop in NYC. It took her three hours to drive there, and less than a minute to know the practice would be part of the rest of her life. She became a globe-trotting student of these three practices: yoga, acrobatics, and the healing arts. Her local and international studies have taken Izzy across the United States, Europe, and all the way to Southeast of Asia. Devoting herself to the path of becoming a certified teacher, Izzy graduated Kripalu's 500hr Massage Program (Mass LMT), and the Thai Massage Circus Intensive. She finally became an AcroYoga Teacher in 2011.
