I am a Yoga Therapist & Certified Facilitator for The Work of Byron Katie. Experiencing yoga as a path of self-discovery, inner peace, & creativity, I often blend meditative inquiry, thai massage, and/or yogArt into my private sessions, workshops, retreats, & teacher trainings.
The Work of Byron Katie is a simple yet powerful process of identifying and questioning thoughts that create stress and suffering. It’s a way to clear the mind and love reality, just as it is. Through inquiry and movement, I love exploring the relationship between the mind & body ~ how our mental BS (belief systems) affect our emotions, physical sensations, and overall health & wellbeing.
I am also certified in the healing art of Thai Yoga Bodywork (assisted stretching, massage, & acupressure), and as a result, my yoga classes are very hands-on, allowing students to feel nurtured, relaxed, and supported in every moment. A massage during svasana anyone? Yes, please.
In 2015, life gave me a sweet surprise when I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 34. My background provided the perfect training & inner support system to meet cancer with an open mind, peace, & humor. Cancer became a true gift and my greatest yoga teacher. It taught me how to be present, slow down, deeply listen, ask for support, let go, & truly connect with myself and others. Becoming “free” from cancer has taken on a whole new meaning.
When the mind is open, inner peace is available to us in any moment. More than ever, I am inspired to share my experience and these healing tools with anyone who is ready to reconnect with their natural state of peace, joy, & clarity.
“Life happens for you, not to you.” ~Byron Katie
