Phoebe comes from a strong movement background. She received her BFA in Modern Dance from University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she studied technique, anatomy, kinesiology, and pedagogy. As a professional dancer in New York City, her studies continued and she earned her Pilates certification from the Kane School of Core Integration, 500 hour Certification (ERYT500) under the guidance of her mentor Jeanmarie Paolillo from YogaWorks and Restorative/Therapeutics training with Jillian Pransky from YogaWorks.
Teaching at various studios/programs in New York City since 2002, Phoebe made the move to the Hudson Valley in 2010. She founded and directed the yoga program, Yoga at the Roundhouse as part of the boutique hotel, The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls in Beacon, NY. In 2014, she founded nOMad always at OM that brings new experiences on and off the mat to yogis at nOMad's Online Studio, on yoga retreats, and at community events. Her mission through nOMad is to give her students the tools to live a fuller life with more joy, gratitude, confidence, and connection.
At first glance, you might see Phoebe as the girl next door. Go deeper and meet a woman who has lived several lives within this lifetime. Her stories she will share with you on and off the mat awe inspiring that all carry the themes of strength, resilience, grace, gratitude, and hopefulness.
In 2013, after the death of her father and a sudden end to a 15 year marriage, she was then presented with several gifts to heal her wounds from her challenging childhood. Through the work of self-exploration and self-love, Phoebe has mindfully begun the journey to bring those stories out into the light through her teachings. Her mission is to inspire her students that through our own darkness we can rise again and create the life we want and more importantly, that we deserve.
Phoebe finds gratitude in the magical, simple, and even the tragic moments in life. She sees that all of these are gifts from the universe to guide us in the dis-covering of our deepest treasures and desires. Some have said Phoebe leads a life full of alchemy, creating something out of nothing but the reality of it is we all have this power. If we take time to step back, look a little closer at our road maps of life, observe all of our interconnectedness, and dig a little deeper, we all have the power to attract the magic of life.
Namaste to her teachers; Jeanmarie Paolillo, Jillian Pransky, Paula Lynch, Elizabeth Andes-Bell, Linda Farrell, Milton Myers, and Tao Porchon Lynch.
