As a Yoga Instructor, Massage Therapist and Holistic Health Counselor, it is my passion and joy to support and enhance the empowerment of others through the provision of embodied education in mind-body-spirit union. My prayer is that we all rise up and become the light and the healing our world so dearly needs.
