Spirit Seeds Wellness
The yoga I teach is rooted in traditional Hatha and Tantra yoga. I studied Ayurveda and use this philosophy of moving with nature with in us and around us. I specialize is Trauma Sensitive yoga, with a strong background in neuroscience and research based practices. I've taught at the VA hospital for years and love teaching people who haven't had good luck working in traditional yoga settings.
The practice of yoga and meditation has given me such a gift of learning to move through life's transitions with grace and understanding. It is my greatest joy to get to share this gift with others! Yoga practice can be a great work out but it offers us so much more as we dive into philosophy and self study to give us resource and meaning in life.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I take the time to get to know what your needs are, why are you coming to the practice and what do you want to get. Our yoga practice should be very personal and I want you to be self directed as much as possible, while I provide guidance and point to the door, you will need to walk through.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I hold a 4 year degree in Yoga teacher training, as well as many continuing education hours in Trauma Informed Yoga, with some of the best teachers in the field. I studied Ayurveda, anatomy philosophy, and neuroscience to help me know why we do the things we do and how they work. I just completed a 300hour Advanced teacher training developing my own teacher trainings and workshops and retreats!
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
$60 for a private session, which can include some Thai Massage, Sound Healing, Reiki or gentle flying
$15 drop in for my public classes
I am willing to work on a sliding scale if there is financial need
How did you get started teaching?
I had been practicing for a while when a teacher of mine told me I should teach. It took me several more years to actually go to teacher training, when I did I went to Naropa University to get a 4 year degree and learn as much as I possibly could.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with people from all walks of life! I teach in a yoga studio, corporate offices like Google, in gyms, and in mental health settings, like the Veterans Hospital down in Denver and Boulder Valley Mental Health. I have even taught in prisons and detention centers. I can teach for people with physical and mental disabilities, and work with the student starting just where they are!
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Take your time and learn to be gentle with yourself, we all begin somewhere and often have to begin again, by being yourself fully you are giving a gift to this world!
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
What are you seeking? (Relaxation, work out)
what is your focus? (physical, mental, emotional etc)
What are you looking to gain or accomplish? Look for a teacher that has that.
