Yoga & Meditation
Rikki has been practicing yoga since 2004 and teaching since 2009. She has been teaching at Yoga Agora in Astoria since its opening in 2010. She teaches hatha, vinyasa and yin yoga as well as meditation rooted in the Vipassana tradition. She has fallen in love with yoga and meditation for their ability to help us find both freedom and refuge in our bodies. In her classes you’ll find creative movement, breath awareness, and a strong focus on mindfulness. She teaches practices that help us harness our attention, find ease in our most immediate experiences, and redesign our habitual patterns. Rikki has studied meditation with Josh Korda at Dharma Punx, Chris Crotty, Tara Brach and Ralph De La Rosa; yoga anatomy with Sam Chase and Tiffany Cruikshank; and she received her Reiki I certification from Lisa Levine at Maha Rose. Her investigation of mind and body are ongoing and she loves sharing these tools with others.
