Toni was introduced to Yoga at a young age by her father who taught her to "breathe in the good and breathe out the bad,"  as they studied books of Yoga and imitated the postures.

Many years later, she was reintroduced to the practice while working at HBO when she began taking classes at the company gym, and then daily classes at Yoga Haven in Tuckahoe NY.

After knee surgery in 2001, she decided to take Yoga Teacher training at Yogaville with Swami Satchidananda. She then realized that he was the author of the books she had studied as a child.

Toni has since taught thousands of hours of group and private classes.

She has spent many days and weekends over the years studying at Kripalu, Himalayan Institute, Ananda Ashram and Sivananda Ashram.

Additionally, Toni has studied Ayurveda through a distance learning program offered by Ayurveda.MD, in association with The Institute Of Indian Medicine in Poona India.

She has written articles on Yoga such as: In Search of Bindu -- the true Holy Grail:  Bindu Visarga & the Cosmic Torus; The Goal of Yoga Asana & Pranayama; The Greatest Mystery, Tantra,Tao, Duality - Non Duality.

Toni taught in Pawling from 2004 to 2008 at her studio.  She has taught at Gold's Gym, Fitness Unlimited Mahopac, Allsport Fishkill, NYSC, Kisco Management, Corp, Restorative Management Addiction Recovery Center, Integral Yoga Institute in Manhattan, Carmel Fitness & Racquet Club, Snap Fitness, Saw Mill Club and AER Yoga in Mt. Kisco as well as Taconic Fitness in Beekman.
