My journey in holistic health and healing began over 20 years ago when discovering yoga following a neck and spinal injury. Almost immediately, I noticed a decrease in pain both during and after yoga class. My practice left me not only physically stronger, but more focused and content. Eventually, I felt inspired to share my passion for yoga with others. So in 2003, I trained to be a 200 HR yoga instructor at Discovery Yoga in St Augustine, FL.
Through years of teaching and developing my practice, I began to understand that the principles of yoga are not only helpful on the mat, but have real life lessons and applications. The Zen philosophy of Shoshin, beginners mind, resonates with me as I approach life with a sense of curiosity and enthusiasm to evolve, grow and learn. I have always had interst in holistic practices. So following years of teaching yoga, I embarked on a journey to study the Usui Reiki technique and went on to receive my master certification. Yoga and Reiki are a natural combination. Both practices work in tandem, encouraging the flow of life force energy in the body by removing blocks and balancing the chakras. In 2019, I received my Level 1 certification in the IRest method of Mindfulness Meditation.
This year, 2021, has been a year of unique challenges, but through the hardships and the closing of a chapter in my life, I have discovered a renewed sense of self worth, confidence and desire to show up in the world in ways I hadn't before. I patiently hold space for others so they can seek alignment to their truth in the present moment.
Within the last few years, I added two new certifications, Basic and Advanced Theta Healing. My holistic approach to physical health and well-being consists of a fusion of Reiki, Theta Healing, meditation and yoga.
I enjoy holding space for all types of people who are both spiritually curious and interested in developing their personal growth. In addition, I have a specialized interest in studying the damaging effects of Narcissistic abuse on self esteem, emotional well-being and physicality and have found an approach helpful to the healing process.
