The Gong sound reverberates over and around , it’s a overpowering experience that connects you with the UNIVERSAL OM, focusIng and engaging the subconscient mind and silencing the internal chatter. ———————————————————-
“The gong is very simple. It is the sound of Creativity itself. One who plays the gong plays the universe. The gong is not an ordinary thing to play. Out of it came all music, all sounds, and all words. The sound of the gong is the nucleus of the Word.” Gong Master Yogi Bhajan
The name “Prana Mudra “ = from the Sanskrit, prana, meaning “life force” or “energy,” and mudra, meaning “gesture” or “seal.” = emerged from a desire to create a new community sanctuary that promoted authentic inner connection and “Life Force” regeneration using sound energy activation, yoga and massage therapies. Prana Mudra workshops and therapies are combined to elevate mind and body awareness and energetic balance, reduce daily stress and anxiety, restore better sleep patterns and offer renewed vitality as you age.

SOUND THERAPY How does it work ?
Is an immersive vibrational experience in which gongs and singing bowls are played to inner interact with specific brain waves. High frequency sound can measurably affect brainwave activity and boost the immune system. Our cells and organs all have a vibrational frequency. Gongs and Crystal bowls are tuned to notes that stimulate the Alpha and Theta brain waves, so we get heightened creativity, exceptional insights, enhanced memory and elevated brain performance. There’s an activation of the parasympathetic response which is responsible for energy renewal, increased immunity levels and deeper states of relaxation. The listeners enter a powerful life changing journey letting sonic gongs, crystal singing bowls , tibetan bowls, kochi and earth chimes sound energies wash over them, healing life force and balancing the body chakras.

As many other teachers , I started practicIng yoga only looking at the more physical aspects of Hatha. The more time I spent on the mat the more I saw my practice progressively evolve into becoming a series of moving meditations. I experienced more life balance, greater foucus and self discipline as well as an awakened heart and compassion. Later in my life the Universe confronted me with a period of deep loss and dealing with serious illness ( cancer ). Both were motivators to make me commit to lifestyle changes and lead me into a new path as a yoga teacher which started by enrolling in a NYC YTT with my first inspirational teacher Rodney Yee.
I am trained in Vinyasa style yoga that is alignment based, what at times can be quite challenging but I always allow my students custom modifications making it attainable to all levels .
I also practice Yoga Sound Healing Therapies to awaken and balance Chakra and Kundalini energies, using cosmic vibrational instruments such as gongs and crystal bowls. I made my signature as a teacher to offer ”sound meditation“ in all my classes and during “Sound Bath workshops” . I hope I can reflect high positivity and excitement to my students in their daily practice and show yoga as a source of universal connectivity. Yoga is for everyone and there are many different paths Each of us should always turn within to create more self care and self love. As a result our world would be a kinder and giving place to live in. :: LOKAH SAMASTAH SUKHINO BHAVANTU::———————————————————-

”Activate your life force and heal you yoga body " My mind body connection hit a lowest point after 20 years of hectic NYC lifestyle where I ignored my needs for authentic alignment. My journey into "wellness " included a detox-recovery process from people places and things , Buddhist studies at the Brooklyn Zen Center , Integrative Nutrition training and lately transitioning out of the city and into a new career in Nj BodyWork Massage Therapy.
I opened Prana Mudra Center in 2018 with my partner Scott Bailey as reflection of our commitment to holistic transformation and leading mindful lifestyles .
In my daily living with a yoga teacher I noticed areas of adhesions and joint restrictions what made me become passionate in helping yogis using massage therapy to increase flexibly for asanas, address discomfort in wear and tear areas such as wrist joints, upper back, neck and shoulder, hamstrings and hips flexors.
