Would you like to feel more Focused, Grounded, At Peace?

Do You Feel Anxious, Overwhelmed, Triggered?  Would you like to enhance your state of Emotional, Spiritual or Mental Wellbeing?

I empower women facing stress, exhaustion & overwhelm, to discover their inner strength, improve health, and increase resilience. So they can live fully & age well. 

 


It was my own need for healing that brought me to yoga in 2000 when I was living in a big city,  stressed out, had no energy, no tolerance and felt zero compassion towards myself.

When I found yoga, my world began to shift. I couldn’t wait to get to the tiny studio where I would practice several times a week after work. The stress and tension of the day lifted as I learned how to connect with my body and breath.

 

The hard edges softened and I began to notice compassion towards, and resiliency within myself. I felt more alive than I had in years, and I knew I had found my life’s calling. 

 

In 2012, my best friend died, and my world crumbled.  After several weeks of numbing out, I found my way to my yoga mat every day. My mat was there to witness my pain, soak up my tears, and receive me unconditionally. When nobody could fix me, my yoga practice was my way through my grief.

After beating my body up pretty good over many years teaching and honing my craft of asana based yoga, including power vinyasa, hot yoga and practices where my body secretly suffered (for years without my ego even knowing), I turned to yoga therapy as a holistic path to transform my relationship with stress and accept, find gratitude for, and embrace my aging, beautiful body.
There’s a saying, “we store our issues in our tissues.” In those dark times, on my yoga mat, I saw myself for who I was, and began healing.  Yoga brings us in touch with the wisdom of the body, so we can come to know ourselves intimately.
These days, I have a softer, nurturing, approach to yoga, and towards myself. 
I have a B.A. from Washburn University, an E-RYT 500, YACEP, and a yoga therapy certificate from Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. I have been practicing, teaching and studying yoga for a long time. I will complete my studies with PRYT this year, and will apply for credentialing with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT), the highest level of education in the yoga profession, -expected Fall 2022.

For 15 years, I taught classes in numerous studios, gyms and community centers. I co-owned The Yoga Room at Fairlawn Plaza for 5 wonderful years. Unfortunately, the studio closed its doors in March 2021 due to constraints from the pandemic. 

 

I help individuals who are ready to deepen their human experience and facilitate their own healing through yoga therapy.

Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy has transformed the way I view yoga, my body and my relationship to myself. Yoga at its deepest level is about transformation. Coming back to our true nature, and remembering that we are so much more.

 

It's unlike any yoga class or other form of yoga therapy and I would love to share it with you!
