COME AS YOU ARE
I’m an ACE Certified Health Coach, Behavior Change Specialist and seasoned Yoga Teacher committed to enhancing your resilience and supporting your move towards physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
Whole Health is a multidimensional and ever-evolving process. As we embark on this evolutionary journey together, it’s essential to me that you feel seen, accepted and safe as you are right now. We grow from there.
Over the last 2 decades, I have cultivated a powerful toolset from which we can draw to find a unique combination that activates the lifestyle-behavior changes YOU seek:
- Evidence-based behavior change methodology
- Mobility training
- Kettlebell strength training
- Mindful journaling
- Sleep hygiene
I began practicing Yoga, a science of behavior change that originated in India, in college at UCSD in 1995. I have owned and directed 4 yoga studios in Los Angeles, CA, Kansas City, MO and Boulder, CO and have been a teacher educator through my school, the Colorado School of Yoga, since 2008.
In 2020 I founded The Yoga Potluck, an online member community or sangha that explores all the limbs of Yoga’s 8-Limbed Path.
I practice daily Vipassana meditation, the form of S.N. Goenka, and teach its accessible, simplified form, anapanasati. Anapanasati meditation uses an awareness of breath and the sensations of breath to yoke the energy of the mind so that it is fit to see into itself. All behavior change begins with self-awareness.
I fell in love with Kettlebells in 2019. I study the Strong First method and train with them 5x/week.
One of the greatest acts of self-care is nourishing yourself well. Tuning in to how you feel and knowing what you need in any given moment is powerful. Through exploration, experimentation and empowerment in the kitchen, we can leverage over 25 years of kitchen and nutrition wisdom to find what works for you long-term.
My education has been broad, varied and deep and has included long-term apprenticeships for which I am eternally grateful. A deep bow of gratitude and respect to:
