About this pro

I have been single-mindedly focused on holistic health since the onset of some serious family medical issues nearly a decade ago. Since, I have been on my own personal self-study program geared to consistently evolve myself into my best version.

I spent 3 years studying stress management, nutrition, holistic health, and life coaching at Arizona State University, and in late 2014 sent myself on a 2 month journey through India to study Yoga and Ayurveda. I keep myself well-informed and up-to-date on new information within the realm of holistic health and/or yoga.

I have been doing one on one lifestyle coaching as an independent since 2012, and teaching yoga both indepently as well at local studios, gyms and events since 2014.

Nothing is more satisfying than uplifting someone to the point of healing themselves, from the inside out. Baring witness to such things is as close to a miracle as I've ever known a miracle to be.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

It's important that we initially get to know a little bit about each other, and ensure that we can build a trusting, open and professional relationship with one another before moving forward with any kind of practice.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have University course work completed in the fields of lifestyle coaching and personal health. 

I have a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification through Santhi Yoga Institute in Kerala, India.

I have been up to date on my CPR certification since 2009.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

30 minute video or phone consultation FREE of charge takes place first. If we decide we are a good match, we will move forward with pricing at $75/hr.


How did you get started teaching?

I first started as my own guinea pig, willing to put these ancient practices and ideas into practice within my own life. Through self-evaluation, reflection of my experiences, and continuous study and refine techniques, I believe I have something for everybody.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with people ranging from 6 years old to people in their 70's. Perfectly healthy, injury free and vital bodies to those ridden with aches, pains and recovering injuries. There is space for everybody when taking on a new holistic practice through yoga or otherwise.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Living in The Greater Seattle area during it's glorious summer months, you can find various small and larger health related festivals and conferences where people from the industry come together and spread awareness and knowledge to those who might be seeking. I appreciate these attempts at creating more holistic health within the community.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find someone you can jive with on a more personal level, and who has the knowledge, practice and expertise needed for your particular issue/s. In other words, find somebody who was once where you are and is currently somewhere you want to be - nobody can teach you anything they haven't done themselves.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What motivates you to be healthier?

What kinds of goals / outcomes are you looking to achieve? 

How long and hard are you willing to try to achieve those goals?

With what you know about yourself, what kinds of things do you need from your instructor to stay on track, focused and moving forward in your practice?
