I have been teaching yoga privately and to groups internationally and in the US for over 20 years and am a student of Shadow Yoga. Along with teaching yoga I have studied many healing arts and health and wellness modalities and philosophies over the past 25 years from which I have a range of professional certifications and experiences.
I maintained my certification in Exercise Science and Fitness and my BA f in Biological anthropology from UC San Diego, while also studying ecology and anthropology in Thailand. I continued to do graduate work in ecology and anthropology, which was completed at the University of Hawai'i where I focused my research on the links between human and ecological health.
After college I was very blessed to spend many years living in the jungles of Mexico where I worked as an Ayurvedic chef, and yoga instructor, apprenticed and lived at an Ayurvedic treatment and Pachakarma center, working alongside Ayurvedic doctors and traditional indigenous healers, offering many healing modalities and learning to blend oils and herbs.
During my years in Mexico I also taught privately and in studios, ran yoga and surf retreats, and served as the in house yoga instructor, Thai massage therapist and Ayurvedic therapist at Haramara Retreat Center.
I use my diverse background, which also includes personal training, pilates and Thai massage, to work holistically and individually with clients. Helping you to find balance and optimal health taking a simple holistic and seasonal approach to wellness.
I’m a passionate healer and guide, dedicated to helping my clients move through a wide range of physical, emotional and spiritual transitions in simple, effective & intuitive ways. My intention is that through sharing yoga, Ayurveda, nutrition and natural solutions to wellness you will feel more balanced, connected, empowered and free.
My sessions can be done in person or remotely. I'll specifically tailor them to your needs or group to ensure you receive the tools that works best for you. I have worked with 100's of individual privately and 1000's in groups and have seen very powerful results. I share my passion, that is the result of my experience, with my offerings. Time and again I have seen the incredible healing power of daily practices and simple shifts have profound results and would love to help you connect back in with your highest self.
