the whole world is revealed to your new eyes."

I have a deep and wide understanding of how trauma impacts the mind, body, spirit, and heart. I also have a profound knowing of the possibilities that emerge from cultivating tools and healing practices to regulate and restore balance to the nervous system. My interest as a movement guide is to offer an embodied experience that respects each individual’s body and process. As a passionate student of life, I aim to hold safe spaces for all people to feel seen, heard, and be fully themselves; as healing happens in the context of relationship. Leading from a place of authenticity, honesty, curiosity, and heart; my approach stems from self-inquiry-based somatic exploration and learning; focusing in trauma, post traumatic growth, addiction, body based mindfulness, and the quest of the true Self. I blend the art and science of yoga with the self-care and lifestyle approach of Ayurveda. I believe this combination offers a pathway to connection, embodiment, truth, and transformation.


Forever a student, always learning, exploring, and growing.


Thank you for being a part of the journey with me.
