My desire is to share with you what I have discovered,
my intention to meet you where you are.
Just as you are.





As we move through our life, our body internalizes, processes and filters our experiences – mostly without conscious awareness. Thoughts and feelings held within the body can be the source of stress, emotional and physical pain and discomfort.

Yoga Therapy is a self-empowering process exploring the relationship between the body, the mind and one’s life experience.  


One of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is the opportunity to stop for a moment and to listen to our own inner voice. Restorative Yoga offers a gateway to connection to one self, clarity around the busyness of our lives and a more balanced and healthy relationship with our bodies.     

In a Restorative Yoga class we have permission to stop, to let go of doing, to simply be and to reconnect.


So much of life’s journey is uncontrollable and unpredictable. If we can prepare ourselves to handle the more challenging stages in our life by bringing stress and anxiety under control we can improve our quality of life and once again, become an active participant in our own healing.

Embodied Mindfulness can facilitate awareness of the connection between our physical experience and our mental/emotional experience in a non-judgemental and accepting way, while in the present moment.
