Current Speaking Engagements

From 2013-2015 I was a postdoctoral research fellow at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, where I studied the effects of yoga in school settings. While I gave many presentations at academic conferences, I had to reduce my workshops for the general public in order to keep my schedule manageable. 


I currently live in Prague, Czech Republic, where I'm hoping to start giving workshops soon. I'm also happy to travel around Europe and North America to give presentations.


If you'd like to book me for a speaking engagement, please fill out the form on my speaking requests page and my speaking coordinator will be in touch with you.
