In 1999, I turned to yoga as I sought healing for a shoulder injury. Once on the mat, I discovered much more than simple stretches and poses.
The more I practiced yoga, the more my friends and colleagues noticed a difference, emotionally as well as physically. After several comments on my peace and calm, I realized I had found a secret weapon: yoga and mindfulness could, in fact, improve daily lives. Now, as a certified life coach and yoga instructor, I use mindfulness techniques to help individuals and teams find balance and health.
My yoga classes include both active flows using basic yoga poses and restorative practices supported with props to achieve the best alignment and balance between effort and ease. Breathing practices and meditation complement the physical practices for the greatest relief of stress and strengthening of the body. As a life coach, I will help you make behavioral changes in support of your goals using yoga as a supportive tool.
You are the perfect client if you are interested in a holistic approach to your personal and professional life. If you feel the pull of 1,000 responsibilities and worries, I can help you find your center and manage that stress from a grounded place.
Personal Mission Statement
I strive to help my clients uncover their ‘best self’ as they see it and appreciate themselves in the present without stress over the past and future.
“The past is history, the future a mystery. Now is a gift. That is why it is called ‘the present’.” -- old Zen proverb
