Hi, Dear Soul
Are you ready for a beautiful transformation?
I’m So Happy And Honored That You’re Here.
I’m a Yoga Therapist, Licensed Massage Therapist, Ayurvedic Practitioner, earth tender, and Mother to 4 incredible teachers.
Described as “a natural healer with an intuitive practice”, I have spent years discovering how to heal the schisms between the mind, body, and spirit and am on a lifelong journey to perfect this art.
My philosophy begins with the belief that the body and breath are intimately connected with the mind, and that the ancient art of yoga enhances well-being on every level.
I’ve had the privilege of assisting thousands to enhance their quality of life through a person-centered approach that addresses their unique physical, psycho-emotional and spiritual needs.
I offer a synergistic blend of ancient and modern modalities including Yoga Therapy, Ayurveda, Thai Massage, Acupoint Therapy, Anatomy, Neuroscience, Physiology, and Biomechanics with a strong focus on healthy aging, injury, illness, and trauma recovery.
I support women, healers, leaders, and families on their journey to health and harmony. I offer retreats, workshops, mentorship, virtual courses, couples, and individual sessions.
My journey to healing began as a result of complex childhood trauma. One of the gifts of this experience is a drive for meaning and a deep and boundless compassion. It was an initiation into another world. A world of transformation, truth, and self-realization. I began studying philosophy, psychology, yoga, Buddhist traditions…
I was longing to understand the meaning of life. The reason for suffering.
I entered the Air Force, traveled the world, spent almost two decades working in Long Term Care, and had the privilege of sitting at the feet of my elders. I studied, trained, and devoted my time to mothering my children and caring for others.
Eventually, I burnt out. Fast forward 10 years and I found myself sleeping 19-hour days and barely being able to care for myself, never-mind my children. I became so ill from an autoimmune flare-up that I was forced to listen to the signals my body had been sending me. I quit my job, dove more deeply into practice than I ever had before, and devoted myself to healing.
Yoga became my refuge, and Ayurveda my way back to health.
Can You Relate?
Do you resonate with the idea that you are more than your body? Your thoughts? Your feelings?
Do you want to dive deeper into the practice of Yoga?
Do you want to heal yourself or be an instrument in the healing of others?
Are you committed to transformation?
I want to hear from you.
My children will tell you, I’m not perfect. I am the first to admit I’m still growing, self-actualizing, becoming the best version of myself. Yoga is one of my biggest allies. For me Yoga is not the postures, it is “skill in action” (Bhagavad Gita). It is self-study. It is finding that silent place within you that is untouchable by external noise. I welcome you to join me for this journey.
I’m a passionate and lifelong learner. An avid reader and a devoted student of the healing arts. have spent the past 25 years of my life studying quality of life, healing, rehabilitation, end-of-life care, women’s health, massage, Ayurveda, and Yoga.
