Joined Ompractice October 2018
I am a life-long learner and love to infuse my teachings with the cycles of the seasons and the energies of each particular day. I am a visual artist (BFA Minneapolis College of Art and Design), registered yoga instructor (E-RYT200, Temple of Kriya Yoga, Chicago, IL 2003; RYT500, Spirit of the Lake Yoga, Excelsior, MN 2014), certified yoga therapist (C-IAYT), and professional astrologer. I began teaching yoga in 2002. In 2015, I received a certificate of completion from Duke Integrative Medicine for “Yoga of Awareness for Cancer” (currently “Mindful Yoga for Cancer”). I became a Certified Mindful Yoga Works Teacher (Level 2) through Jim and Kimberly Carson (mindffulyogaworks.com) in 2016.
In May 2017, I enrolled in level 1 of Sevanti Institute’s Ayurveda Wellness Counselor Program. February 2018, I traveled to India through Sevanti, experiencing firsthand the healing modalities of Ayurveda. Spring 2018 has blossomed with Adam Gainsburg’s “Breath of the Soul Meditation” training. This fall, I will continue my studies with Sevanti Institute’s Ayurveda Wellness Counselor Program, level 2.
Thai Yoga Bodywork, Bach flower remedies, and Reiki/energy work are some of the other modalities in my healing toolbox. The many modes within which I work and the paths upon which I have been walking are converging for me now in the resonant relationship between… everything! I am particularly inspired by the heart-opening, creativity-affirming vibrations of breath, movement, Nature, art, and music – aka Life!! Every day is an opportunity to heal and grow!
