Co-founded White Cloud Studio, New York, with Juliu Horvath, and trained the first Gyrotonic® teachers. She also administered the studio and staff for 12 years. Taught a specialized form of “Yoga for Dancers” created by Juliu, influenced on Taoist’s principles, drawn from Hatha and Kundalini Yoga. This method was designed to develop correct body alignment and placement, particularly for dancers.
