My journey as wellness practitioner began long as one of seven children in a family that values education and spirituality. I became a massage therapist as well as an internationally certified ski instructor while raising my own family in Crested Butte, CO. An adventurous spirit took my family to the Alps where I learned French and to Ecuador where I learned Spanish and completed a 6 month yoga teacher training program. Along the way, I studied other massage modalities including Thai massage and Agua Alma Aquatic Bodywork. Working in Switzerland, I had an opportunity to complete my masters degree in Psychology with has allowed me to weave together the many different facets of my work. I continue to learn new modalities in an effort to be able to offer the techniques my clients need to soften and connect in their own bodies and lives.
Yoga, pranayama and meditation are proven wellness practices that I am very pleased to share as an adjunct professor at Salt Lake City Community College in the Yoga Teacher Training Program as well as teaching Meditation and Environmental Yoga. I also teach pubic classes at a local studio and coordinate and co-teach 200 and 500 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings with Mary Johnston Coursey. I have completed over 1000 hours of yoga teacher training myself and currently study Parayoga with Rod Stryker and Mary Johnston Coursey. When I see the seeds of this wisdom tradition at work in my life and my student’s I celebrate my great fortune to do work that helps us live with more ease and joy.
