Onyx Yoga Studio
45 Mountain Blvd
Warren, NJ 07059
Originally from Green Brook, NJ, I attended Watchung Hills Regional High School and Marymount Manhattan College and graduated with a Major in Marketing and a minor in Accounting and Media Studies.
I have been practicing at Onyx for 6.5 years. When I was 19, I came home for the summer after my first year of college in NYC, I began experiencing crippling anxiety. I had always suffered from anxiety but going away to college and being away from my family really took a toll on me and caused my panic attacks to worsen and become more frequent. The added workload and stress of being at school also added to my anxiety.
I had taken a few yoga classes at Yoga To The People on St. Marks in NYC but once I came to Onyx, I really discovered my yoga practice. My mind began to still and I became much more connected to my body and gained more awareness. I carried tools I learned that summer into my daily life and found more appropriate yoga studios in NYC to suit my needs. When I would come home from school the first thing I would do is check the Onyx schedule and see when Shannon, Ranjitha and Gabi we’re teaching and make sure I got to at least one class of those classes. I truly do not know where I would be had I not found Onyx, as my love for yoga has followed me through every aspect of my life.
If my photo looks familiar it’s because you often see me working the studio desk when you come to class. Come by and say hi!
