I offer self-care practices to help clients (individuals, groups and corporations) strengthen their self-awareness, mindfully challenge their comfort, and connect to their strength, resilience, and capacity for growth, as well as their ability to abide with the present moment as it is.
I also share metta/lovingkindness meditation practices to strengthen our capacity for self-love, belonging and empathy. Ultimately, I am here to facilitate a connection to the deeper part of ourselves that is resilient beyond our adversities, perceptions, and physical abilities.
I have been practicing Yoga since 2004 and began teaching in 2007 while navigating a deeply rooted fear of public speaking. I love leading retreats with International Yoga. Over the years I have studied and trained extensively in anatomy and therapeutics, Thai Massage, ball rolling and Reiki/energy work. I also trained and mentored other Yoga teachers. I came to Yoga while working in non-profit development and volunteer management, after working in marketing and media research.
Mindful movement & metta
Awareness, loving kindness, connection & acceptance
To face a fear of not being good enough in order to share this healing practice that helps me find greater acceptance and compassion for myself and others...and exposes others to the depths of their strength, tenderness, and connection.
Through the focused time of self-care and thoughtfully curated excursions, we strengthen and open and find greater meaning and depths of acceptance and connection with ourselves and others.
Students may say Utkatasana. It is actually balancing poses, whether on hands and/or feet. I enjoy the opportunity to empower students to go beyond their self-limiting beliefs.
