I fell down the wellness rabbit hole in 2008 when, on a trip to India, I had a spiritual awakening while riding a train.  I began examining my belief systems and looking for ways to get more grounded in my body.   

Always eager to learn, I dove head first into developing a yoga practice. I explored the styles of hatha, vinyasa, ashtanga, kundalini, and anusara, as well as mindfulness & buddhist Vipassana meditation.  Eventually I found my mentor, Rebecca Benenati at City Yoga in West Hollywood, and have been mentoring with her ever since. 

Eventually it became clear that the mind/body connection was at the heart of my purpose. As I continued to delve deeper into my own (often very messy!) transformational work, I began sharing what I was discovering.  I started teaching yoga, practicing bodywork in the styles of thai yoga massage, reiki and craniosacral unwinding, and also working as a birth doula. 

My work is grounded in the belief that as we undertake the journey to become embodied, we naturally move in the direction of truth, self-expression, and health. We learn what it is to be useful, and open-hearted.  

I look forward to working with you!
