Helping You Thrive in Health and Life Through a Compassionate Teaching Style
Serving as a guide and facilitator in Clinical Somatic Education, my mission is to gently help clients build confidence, renew sense of self and reclaim personal empowerment. I am skilled at safely adapting somatics and yoga for every client’s ability, from young athletes to people who have serious illness and chronic mental and/or physical conditions.
I’ve turned things around for numerous clients who believed they were “too tight,” “too old” or “too out of shape” to ever get better. Many of my clients were once concerned they would injure themselves or make things worse if they went to a regular gym or yoga class. However, through my gently paced, healing-based somatic classes and individualized sessions, they learned to consciously tap into how their bodies were meant to move. So can you.
I have personally experienced this progress and know first-hand what it’s like to heal mentally and physically after being in pain. Years of chronic injuries led me to my current profession, which involved intensive education and apprenticeship in yoga therapy and Clinical Somatic Education. Supporting and educating others toward better health has become my life’s calling and professional passion.
My educational and professional credentials in this area include:
Clinical Somatic Educator; successfully completed 3-year certification in Clinical Somatic Education (CCSE)
Certified Yoga Therapist with International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT)
Certified Yoga Instructor with more than10 years of teaching experience (E-RYT 500)
Certified Personal Trainer with the American Council on Exercise (ACE-CPT)
Trained in Treating the Jaw & Neck: Trager Fundamentals and Resistance and Release Work (with Deane Juhan)
Certified Mindfulness in Schools Project Teacher (MiSP) & Yoga Ed for Teens and Young Adults
Backed by my extensive training and hands-on experience, my ultimate goal is to show people that finding ease in movement has a positive and lasting impact on all parts of life.
Please join me in discovering your full potential through more confident, pain-free movement and lifestyle.
I’m excited to become part of your health and wellness team.
