The Philosophy of YOGA REVOLUTION
In the midst of a culture that produces fragmentation within our selves and separation from others, Yoga Revolution facilitates the re-connection of individuals with our selves, with those in our communities, and with the natural world around us. Yoga Revolution is grounded in the radical belief that people of all religions, races, sizes, ages, abilities, genders, sexualities and identities can breathe and move, play and work together to make the world a more peaceful and loving place.
Yoga Revolution’s unique approach:
provides customized experiences of movement, mindfulness, and meditation that will revolutionize your everyday life.
cultivates interactions and reflections that are as playful and adventurous as they are deep and meaningful
fosters a sense of health and wellness for individuals and teams, helping you to grow mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually
I am a passionate student of the body, mind and heart. I have found endless territory to explore and enjoy through yoga: within myself, with the teams I’m a part of, and in the wonders of the natural world.
Yoga, which is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning to unite, has been the synthesizing force that integrates my passions for playing and dancing, reflecting and learning, supporting and serving. My daily yoga practice leads me to a sense of healing and balance on the mat - and helps me live more peacefully, intentionally and wholeheartedly off the mat.
During my 18 years serving as Director of the Center for Spirituality at Nazareth College, I had the great joy of helping people foster healthy and positive connections in their bodies, minds and spirits. I started incorporating yoga into my work in 2012 after I received my 200 RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) training from Aimee Senise Connors. Along with a collaborative team of yoga teachers and student leaders, I developed a comprehensive, national award-winning yoga program that includes extensive yoga opportunities for hundreds of students, faculty and staff on campus.
Yoga Revolution marks my transition to full-time yoga coaching and teaching. While I will continue teaching yoga at Nazareth, I am excited to broaden and deepen my connections in the wider community – with athletic teams, businesses, and community agencies that are interested in adding a yoga and mindfulness component to their culture.
When I’m not practicing or teaching yoga, I love spending time with my husband, Mike, my twins, Jonah and Kateri, and my extended Staropoli family. I spend as much time as possible in the great outdoors, playing Ultimate Frisbee, paddling/boating on the water, hiking in the woods, and going on big and small adventures.
I am overwhelmingly grateful to receive and share the gifts of yoga, especially with those who have not yet had access to its healing power.
