I’m an ERYT500 yoga and meditation teacher, a Yoga Medicine® Certified Therapeutic Specialist, and a level 2 Usui Holy Fire III Reiki practitioner. I believe we are incredible beings, and by deliberate movement, rest, nutrition, and supporting energetic practices, the body/mind/spirit are brought into balance and allow for immense self-healing.
My journey with yoga started over 28 years ago, with a fiery physical practice. This practice was transformational and ignited the passion to understand the connectivity between mind/body/spirit. The past few years, I’ve revolutionized myself by embracing yoga’s lunar/Zen/chill-out side, deepening a lifelong meditation practice, and embracing restorative yoga practices.
As I continue to realize the impact of these practices upon myself, I’m eager to understand the underlying science behind innate self-healing. I continually study, teach, and practice the science and psychology of all these methods, including integration with western practices, to deepen my offerings as a healer. I’m blessed to have studied with incredible teachers near and far, on a variety of topics. All this continuing education has allowed my personal practice and teaching to evolve in the most organic and invaluable way.
Currently, I own and lead classes/privates in a virtual studio; teach and coordinate a Yoga for Cancer program for a local cancer center; mentor for Ashley Turner's Yoga Psyche Soul 300 hour program; and mentor yoga/meditation teachers internationally. My greatest honor is sharing my love of yoga and meditation with folks locally and across the world.
