So, you want to do yoga?
It isn't all about bending and twisting and turning. In fact, that stuff is designed to be a small piece of an even larger, transformative practice. Yoga doesn't have to look like it does on instagram or in magazines. Any body can do yoga: small, large, disabled, young, old, injured. My goal is to make yoga accessible to all bodies and all personalities by crafting a personalized practice that suits your needs and addresses your concerns.
I came to yoga seeking refuge from my stressful, high-strung life and found something much more valuable than simple a retreat from day to day life. Now, I use yoga as my tool to work with people to ease discomfort.
I was trained in a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Costa Rica at Marianne Wells Yoga School and a 300-hour Yoga Therapy Training at Yoga Yoga in Austin, Texas. I am Yoga Alliance certified and have additional certifications in Yoga Therapy, Yoga Sequencing for Injury Prevention, Pranayama and Meditation, and Yoga for Stress Management. In addition to offering Yoga Therapy to my clients, I am studying to become a Medical Doctor and will matriculate into medical school in 2020.
In my spare time I am either playing with my dogs, reading, making stuff with my hands, traveling somewhere near a large body of water, or, let's face it, studying.
How I use Yoga
My commitment is to your health and wellbeing. I use evidence-baseed, yogic practices to help manage day-to-day stress and discomfort. I use a combination of gentle postures or poses, breathing exercises, and deep relaxation to help relieve discomfort from common ailments. Yoga can be used to help manage stress, chronic pain, and can compliment appropriate medical and therapeutic remedies.
I will not use yoga in leu of medical care and I will not provide you with medical advice. I will never overstate the benefits of yoga or suggest alternative treatments that are not evidence based.
I am currently only offering private sessions that take place in your home. Due to time constraints, I will accept new clients based on current availability and will prioritize current and on-going clients.
