I began dabbling in yoga in college and created a more consistent practice beginning in 2014. What began as a personal physical and mental health journey turned into a love for yoga and Reiki, and a desire to share the benefits with everyone around me.
In 2016, I began my Master's program in social work and quickly discovered how the body is so often left out of mental health work. So, I got my certification as a yoga teacher with the intention of combining the two. To further my knowledge and desire to support people experiencing grief and loss get in touch with themselves and their bodies, I began my yoga therapy training in the spring of 2020.
I believe that Yoga Therapy and Reiki are such beautiful medicine and that they can truly transform the relationship we have with our body, mind, and spirit, as well as the connections we have with the people around us. I'm passionate about making sure that everyone in every body can experience movement and healing in fully present and intuitive ways.
My greatest joy is supporting people experiencing grief and loss create meaning and find acceptance and ease. I have a long list of grief experiences throughout my life in a variety of different ways. It has been through these moments of challenge that I've slowly learned to talk about grief and death and sadness and how to fully embody the experience. Grief is not taboo. Grief needs to be talked about, to be held and seen and heard. I believe one of the most profound ways to engage with grief is by getting into your body and being with the process - and letting it be messy. And I'm here to be with you in that, every step of the way.
