"I realized that there was healing power in movement, breath, mantra, meditation and sound the very first time on my yoga mat. I sensed a deep knowing, an earthly resonance, that these were to be the primary methods that would support my healing journey."

Yoga found me in 2005. Quickly, I realized that there was healing power in movement, breath, mantra, meditation and sound the very first time on my yoga mat. I sensed a deep knowing, an earthly resonance, that these were the primary methods that would support my healing journey. For nearly 16 years, I have practiced many styles of yoga and have deeply connected with several including Kundalini, Hatha, and Restorative.

I was introduced to Reiki in 2007 and was immediately intrigued with this healing modality. Attuned to level one and two by 2010 by my first Reiki teacher, I was incorporating the techniques into my daily life for myself, family, friends and beloved pets. Obtaining attunements of level three and Reiki Master Teacher by 2013, I had realized the melding of Reiki in the yoga classes I was instructing. 


Over the years, I pursued teacher training in Hatha and Kundalini Yoga. Guiding you through a Hatha practice,

you’ll experience an eclectic combination of self awareness techniques including traditional and restorative postures with meditations emphasizing heart-centered compassion for yourself. With Kundalini, I share a profound technology that awakens the energy of our consciousness, illuminates our self-imposed boundaries in order to grow and expand our awareness and compassion. It prods us to cultivate a strong intuitive mind and offers skills to cope successfully with the challenges of our times and in our lives. Then, I weave in the mystical, healing vibrations of Gong which helps to restore our genuine state of balance and well-being.
