Health & Wellness Specialist
Florence, affectionately called Flo, earned the equivalency of a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Drama after studying at the “Theatre Atelier Paris Sud” (TAPS) with Sarah Sanders. She performed in NYC and internationally with Viveca Lindfors in venues such as the Actors Studio and also performed for the Ubu Rep Theater and Tribeca Lab.
Over a decade ago, she began to focus on the studies of yoga. She first became an Experienced 500hr yoga teacher and then furthered her education with the teachings of B.K.S Iyengar. She graduated from the Teacher Training Program at the Iyengar Institute of New York, and soon after became a certified Iyengar Teacher. Flo has taught in diverse settings including yoga studios, clinicians’ offices, specialized high schools, inner-city schools, and spent a year at Academics West which offers special education.
She finds that young people can benefit tremendously from yoga by cultivating strength, flexibility, and focus on the physical, emotional and mental level. She is grateful for the opportunity to teach Iyengar Yoga at The Dorm.
