Six years ago I was burning out, career-wise, and searching for balance. But consistent yoga practice, exercise, meditation and nourishing food seemed like luxuries for other people with time.
A physical wake-up call and a mentor inspired me to put my health first, leave my cushy corporate gig and help others.
Over the next few years I worked as an Elite Personal Trainer at Crunch and completed my RYT-200 training with Om Factory NYC (Kevin Bigger and Amanda Winkler).
I took the plunge and launched Lavelle Yoga Fitness (LYF) in 2014 to bring yoga, strength training, cardio, corrective exercise and nutrition coaching directly to you.
While my title may be "teacher" I'm a lifelong student because my students' physical and mental transformations inspire me to take risks and continue my education.
I especially adore working with people who want to focus on their short- and long-term well-being, make lasting body composition changes or reduce their pain/discomfort.
I found my way back to work-life balance and wellness through movement. My mission is to help people just like you find inner strength and joy through movement too.
