The Yoga that I practice and share today is a reflection of the great teachers in my life. These teachers have assumed many earthen and etheric forms. My 200-hr Yoga teacher training with Amba and Don Stapleton, Ph.D in Costa Rica at the Nosara Yoga Institute was the beginning of my formal studies in Hatha Yoga and a direct invitation to fully experience all the dimensions of myself. Over the past 15 years I have explored and studied Ashtanga (David Swenson and Baron Baptiste adaptations), Anusara, Bhakti, Forrest, Hatha, and Kripalu Yoga. Throughout this yoga journey, I traveled and lived all over the world; surfing, caring for animals, and just simply taking in the energy and majesty of these places with utmost gratitude. My deep connection to the ocean has allowed me to experience freedom on so many levels and taught me to be light, joyful, and to ride the inner waves with an open heart.
The spirits of animals humble and inspire me. In my work with these sentient beings, I have had the opportunity to experience their willpower, grace, and unconditional love through their process of healing and often during their time of dying. I call on my spirit guides, St. Francis, and Archangel Michael to support my animal friends on their journey.
I am a Usui Reiki Master. The energy medicine that I practice today has evolved over the past thirteen years. What began purely as Reiki has taken shapelessness. Energy sessions have the ability to shift into spirit guide communication, illumination, extraction, a profound inner listening or a "Hawk's eye view" for the receiver...and sometimes it is Reiki. I am so grateful to Alberto Villodo, Ph.D for making sense of it all. I continue to study the Energy Medicine of the Ancient Americas with an open mind.
I bring to my yoga classes what spirit has brought to me. It is my intention that each student learn to trust their inner guide and honor what unique gifts spirit has brought to them.
Currently teaching Level 2 and Level 2-3.
