Meditation for Mental Health


“Sydney taught one of the most valuable classes I have ever taken on classpass and in the city overall. I can’t recommend it more highly! The session can go in any direction you like; I came out feeling so refreshed and with some new meditation techniques to use on a daily basis. I can’t wait to come back!” - April, 2019

Benefits of Meditation

Meditation can be an incredible compliment to other wellness practices. A meditative practice can help you:

  • break habitual patterns of thinking and behavior

  • reduce stress

  • work with chronic pain

  • increase relaxed states that support physical and emotional healing

  • boost creativity and concentration and help you get in touch with the wisest and kindest parts of yourself.

Whether you’ve been meditating forever, but are struggling to create a daily practice, or just started and can’t wait to dive in deeper, these experiences always leave meditators feeling encouraged and empowered.

My approach

I combine a variety of techniques that can address your unique concerns and modify for every mind, heart and body. Private meditation sessions are trauma-informed and can be an individual tailored to best suite your needs.

Some techniques that may be included Yoga Nidra, Insight Meditation, Mindfulness and Concentration, Light Stream, Mantras, Visualizations, Body Awareness, Urge Surfing, Inner Child Work, Loving Kindness and Self Compassion.

Teacher Training and Mentorship

I also provide mentorship to yoga and meditation teachers who are hoping to learn to better use meditation to support a variety of clinical issues in collaboration with medical providers.

I work out of beautiful, fully stocked, private spaces in New York City and New Jersey. Depending on availability I also provide in home sessions for clients who aren’t able to travel.
