About Me

I read. I write. I teach yoga. I wear my politics on my sleeve. I battle with my misanthropic tendencies.

“It ain’t why, it just is.” ~ Van Morrison

I have been a yogi for over ten years. A yoga teacher for five of those years. I am a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance, a certified Les Mills Body Flow instructor and a certified Spinning instructor. I am also a certified AFAA Group Fitness instructor. (You would never know it from my road rage and devotion to cheese fries but, fortunately, my goal is authenticity, not perfection.)

I am learning things along the way not just how to be physically healthy but mentally and emotionally as well and I hope you will learn right along with me.

I enjoy all things awkward and irreverent. Books and milkshakes are my weakness. And I’m a sucker for English Bulldogs. I also have a small collection of Russian Nesting Dolls. I’m not creepy – just misunderstood.

Currently located in Washington, DC/Silver Spring, MD.

If you would like to hear a little bit more about my wellness activities, follow me at Third Space Wellness – the wellness center I am opening in Silver Spring, MD.

  2. Hi Sam,

    I came by to learn where you teach yoga – see if I can make a class one day! Would be a great idea to have a page up about that πŸ™‚

    • Hey Lisa – Right now I’m teaching at the Bethesda Sport and Health every other Saturday at 9:00 AM. I also teach on Mondays and Tuesdays at 6:00 PM and every other Saturday at 11:15 AM at the Bethesda Naval Medical Center but that facility is for military, their family members and NIH full-time employees only!
