My yoga practice has been of deep service to my own healing and evolution.
When I entered the practice ten years ago, I was completely disembodied and disconnected from my self.
My sense of worth was derived from my weight and appearance. I had zero coping skills to manage and no context to understand the pain and suffering that comes with this life.
Using a synthesis of Naturopathic medicine, holistic nutrition, meditation, yoga, spiritual exploration and re-connection with nature, I began to shift my experience of self.
I unlearned the destructive habits and limiting thoughts that I held about myself. I remembered what it was like to trust my intuition. I began to eat intuitively, listening to my body's signals around food choice and amount. I learned how to alternate between restoration and movement in a way that supported whole self. I learned how to meet myself with compassion and allowance. And I finally was able to live from a place of joy, abundance and deep gratitude.
My path has by no means been linear and I view healing as a lifelong journey.
I have been a Registered Yoga Teacher for the last five years teaching a variety of private and public classes. I also work with clients individually for a deeper, therapeutic experience. I focus on physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual well-being through a thoughtful and focused blend of modalities.
I am currently working towards my Master's in Clinical Mental Health at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. My program integrates the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism and Meditation into contemporary counseling and psychotherapy practices.
My work is founded on the belief that with guidance, connection and support, everyone has the innate capacity to heal and find a felt sense of well-being and purpose in their life.
