You don't have to be bendy. You don't have to be super strong. Just step inside. We'll help you with the rest.
I love to move but I REALLY love to teach, learn, and help others move and feel their best. I am fascinated by the minutiae of movement and seek to pass the joy of attention to these details to students and clients. I'm a 200 RYT (Yoga) and a Certified Fletcher Pilates teacher. I endlessly seek new knowledge on the practices, the body, meditation, and Yogic spirituality. I take classes from other brilliant Yogis and Pilates instructors, ride horses, hike, hang with my son and husband, and tend to our menagerie of animals.
In 2002 I fell in love with Yoga’s moving meditations that allowed my busy mind to focus, and my restless body to relax. I became a certified Hatha RYT-200 instructor so I could expand my understanding of this ancient practice and share its benefits. Healing is my calling. I am an Integrative Medicine Doctor and fascinated by how movement, healthy food, restorative sleep, and a balanced life can combine to create a healthy mind, body, and spirit. When not on my mat I spend time growing food, creating ceramics, guiding others through outdoor adventures, hiking with my sweet dog Ayla, and laughing with my husband.
I first came to the healing arts through my Yoga practice in the 1970's. I've completed two, 200-hour certifications; a year mentorship program and certification with Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy; an 850-hour Massage Therapy program at Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy with an emphasis on sport, Myofascial and neuromuscular massage techniques; I'm a Reiki practitioner and offer level I and II training and certification. I enjoy hiking, cycling and kayaking.
