"WE ARE ALL JUST WALKING EACH OTHER HOME" - RAM DASS
I hold space for public classes, workshops and courses at PranaShanti Yoga Centre and private sessions from my home studio. All offerings focus on trauma-informed care to build capacity for healthy self-regulation and resilience. The container that we create is grounded in self-compassion and strong enough to hold the full spectrum of experience. An atmosphere of allowing where everything that arises can be held. By integrating simple yet powerful rituals into our daily routines, we can cultivate balance on all dimensions of being.
As a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) and Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500)
my foundation for teaching is based on studies of Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT) with Joseph and Lilian Le Page, Serena Aurora, and Maria Mendola; and LifeForce Yoga (LFY) with Amy Weintraub; and Hatha Yoga with Devinder Kaur and faculty. Exploring sound as a healing modality with the late, great Barclay McMillan and pioneer Jonathan Goldman led me to certify with the Sound Healers Association. My work has been inspired by the teachings of Ram Dass, Jeff Foster, Matt Licata, Hala Khouri, Susanna Barkataki, Brian James, Kimberly Johnson, Richard Miller, Ana Canova, and Pema Chödrön.

Private Yoga Therapy
"Yoga Therapy is not a single lineage or tradition, but the recognition that all of the different facets of Yoga
contribute to health and healing at all dimensions of our being." - Joseph Le Page and Lilian Le Page
Yoga Therapy combines these powerful tools: Pranayama (breathing techniques), Asana (physical postures), Mantra (self-created sounds) Mudra (symbolic hand gestures or attitudes) and Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation) with various forms of meditation. My training includes Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT) - an experiential approach for safely exploring the various dimensions of being based on a vision of health as unity of body-mind-spirit; and LifeForce Yoga (LFY) - a practice of compassion that creates a container big enough to embrace and accept all the dualities of life. LFY is an evidence-based approach to treating depression, anxiety and other issues.
Instead of offering a diagnosis, treating symptoms and attempting to cure, the goal is to facilitate deeper transformation. Yoga Therapy is not a substitute for medical attention; it is a complementary modality. This approach is beneficial for people meeting a wide range of challenges: from the stress of daily living to the symptoms of personal and collective trauma. I offer one-on-one and group sessions on a Sliding Scale or via Tiered Pricing. Please contact me directly to discuss.
NOTE: I am a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT). The Yoga Therapy components of my work are based
on specific training, not derived from my status as a Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500) with Yoga Alliance.
These offerings are suitable as a complement to various allopathic approaches overseen by a medical doctor.
I highly recommend consulting a physician for any ongoing health concerns prior to practicing Yoga.
