Languages Spoken: English
I am a Long Island Native who moved to the Lehighton, Pennsylvania area in 1990. I was drawn to the area after spending summers and vacations near Beltzville Lake State Park growing up. I live with my husband Jim and have one son.
My yoga journey began as a way to control my breath and get some exercise while living with severe asthma. Yoga has made me stronger; mind, body and spirit. I completed by 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training through The Yoga and Ayurveda Center under Steph Ball-Mitchell. I am registered with yoga Alliance as an RYT-200. This has been one of my life goals! I am also certified in and teach Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga and Chair Yoga; along with guided meditations - with and without singing bowls. In August 2020, I will be starting my 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training.
I am also a Reiki Master. I received my first Usui Reiki Attunement in 2012 and began working on friends and family. Since than I received my Usui Reiki Master Attunement from 4 Hands Spiritual Healing. I offer hands on Reiki and Distance Reiki.
I incorporate meditation, pranayama, singing bowls, reiki, and essential oils in my yoga practice.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, being outdoors, gardening, paddle boarding and kayaking. My husband Jim and I have a wellness business called Zen with Zegley. We make our own jewelry, sundry products and more. We offer reiki, singing bowl mediataions, and essential oil workshops. I am so excited to now be offering Yoga as well.
