My whole life has been about movement.  Since immigrating from the former Soviet Union, my family went through Austria and Rome to get to New York.  We settled in Denver for seven years, then found a long lost relative who came during Ellis Island times, in Miami, and settled in the tropical paradise for 15 years.  Then once I finished University in Hospitality Management, I worked on Norwegian Cruise Line for three years seeing all of Europe and the Caribbean.  Before that during High School and College I went to Israel and Prague on study abroad programs.

Fast forward to my new life in Los Angeles, I found Yoga and Performance Art, and starting creating movement and teaching movement for a healthy, fit and happy lifestyle.  Now it is a whole other movement, as a Doula, I guide mom’s and babies to move and groove together into harmony, from inside the womb into a brand new world and life.

I am also passionate about the Pro Israel movement, and have just been informed that I am part of a creative Jewish movement,

Not to mention my philosophy of each person finding their own path, their own body’s way in outside movements, and inside movements, you know the kind I’m talking about, it is definition number one above of the bowel variety.  Quoting my Yoga teacher Raghavan, “Bodily functions should be pleasant, or something is wrong.”

I was relaxing with my friend at a cafe when this guy rolled up, started jamming some Prince, ran into the back of the truck with his drum set, and gave us all a show.  A lot of movement happening in LA 24/7.
