As a Specialist, I ensure a safe introduction to the practice of yoga and provide additional holistic health coaching, tayloring poses to the individual's needs. I have been teaching since 2003 and am a wellness writer with the American Holistic Health Association in Anaheim, CA and Barnes and Noble Booksellers. Thanks for looking us up!
Yoga Therapy shifts the anxious, tired or over-thinker into a relaxed and focused frame of mind. With a spiritual renewal approach, it is fascinating to watch the cluttered thoughts clear and bring a person into a position to reach optimum healing.
Students report more peace, daily life satisfaction, focus for safety and overall prevention. An introductory practice affords the flexibility needed in a fast paced world, expecting more.
Bringing life and sports experience to the mat, each person chooses their style of overcoming pain, grief, personal setbacks and reaching for a way to remain balanced in a new day.
Thank you for supporting our work.

Scheduling a convenient time and location away from the hustle, bustle, where we can talk privately and begin an action plan for healing into more wellness. Most students have an area or time that they believe provides the best focus and we work to meet up then get on the mat shortly following.
From there we schedule follow-up visits and determine how shifts are being managed in the mind, body and spirtiual path the lead for overall health.
As an Occupational/Organizational Social Worker with human behavior expertise and a Master's of Mental Health (including several years of post graduate front line experience), I work to provide safety assessments and holistic ehalth coaching plans. My work with the American Holistic Health Assoc. in California began around 2002 and I was a yoga teacher around the same time.
I also teach Relationship Communications at the University level while remaining community based for natural health and healing. Healing opportunities transpire in all settings.
Working on a sliding fee scale to best meet the needs for individuals, couples and families.
Yoga was a decision to overcome sports related and life injuries, as an adult learner. My practice took on teaching when an excellent instructor taught me many advanced poses then asked me to be a substitute teacher.
With positive feedback and more focus, I developed a way to bring yoga to the individual, with a basic overview that was often needed but unknown to many. Mostly this focuses on the vinyasa style and asana poses.
College students, front line employees, blue collar displaced workers wanting to start a business, moms running after small children, moms overcoming life transitions, couples wanting to learn ways to work together, athletes addicted to lifestyle routines that require more balance or new ways to integrate their skills, an elderly person wanting chair poses to improve daily functioning, professional men dealing with heavy workload and difficult office politics. Yoga is for anyone and all ages.
Most love the outdoors so we often find a way to them.
I had the opportunity to attend the Yoga Journal Conference on the Island of Coronado in southern California and came back a changed person, with sand in my phone and shoes. I was overwhelmed by the beauty and kindness there.
The peace of the sunrise and sunset was breathtaking and calming. The people were relaxed and offered me a smore.
Kids were running and couples were walking the sands.
It was phenomenal - the talent was over the top.
Any student needs a safe and confidential outlet, where they can go to find supportive guidance. Usually they have a vision of what brought them to school, I ask them to work out their focus, behavioral, listening and stress management (coupled in time management) needs on the mat. They love it!
It is exciting to see someone have an 'AHHA moment'.
Oh, this is working and I can really do this - yes.
Yoga is for everyone. Even animals watch and listen.
Students need to remember who has walked the path of financial, personal and professional commitment and decide what is best to be honed in on for the most benefit. They often take couragious steps to achieve goals and want to know it is possible and that someone used their education well.
In other words, everyone has dating or friendship trouble but is family distance created a stress? Is there another sport or hobby that is needing to be intertwined or can they achieve more by the time spent on remembering their health matters?
Are they aligned for the best career fit to their personality?
