As a yoga therapist, I help clients reduce stress and build resilience with movement, mindfulness, and lifestyle practices. My approach is supported by 15 years as a therapeutic-yoga teacher, a master’s degree in holistic health and healing, and education in Reiki and life coaching. Twenty-five years of yoga practice and a solid grounding in science also influence my methods.
I’ve naturally explored yoga and holistic health through a scientific lens. I studied biotech in college, was a NASA scholar, worked in science journalism, and am a published author of a science-education book. Research supports the significant effect of stress relief and resilience on wellbeing. And, I’ve come to realize that yoga’s most powerful, meaningful benefits emerge through experience.
There’s a subtle alchemy that transpires when we integrate yoga’s healing practices. As we learn to soften the sharp edges of stress, we let go of old habits that are no longer serving us. We tune-in to our inner landscape and awaken our own deep resources. We experience greater comfort, connection, and joy. All of these things. And, we create a life with less stress and more ease.
