I am a homeschooling mother of two brilliantly creative boys. They keep me on my toes, fill my life with laughter and are my daily teachers. Both my children were birthed naturally at freestanding birth centers.
My first introduction to yoga, meditation and self-growth was as a young girl through my mother who practiced hatha yoga and by reading eastern philosophy books. I have been practicing bhakti yoga, “the yoga of devotion”, for 20 years.
I am a graduate of Cultural Anthropology, Integral Yoga and wholistic Pre/postnatal yoga teacher and Reiki master/teacher. I am also a certified Ayurvedic Thai Bodywork Practitioner and offer The Access Bars®. I love learning healing modalities!
My specialty is in teaching Purnasya Yoga, a style of yoga I created blending Vinyasa, Integral, Kundalini and Yin yoga with a strong emphasis on alignment and spontaneous movement.
Furthermore, I have taught as an adjunct professor at Camden College in Southern, NJ, the University of Florida Department of Recreational Sports and for the March of Dimes.
Moreover, I have successfully taught at the renown Yoga Child in Philadelphia. I am grateful to have studied Birthing From Within and trained through Birthworks and Childbirth International, as a doula and childbirth educator and am a breastfeeding counselor.
I am passionate about treading lightly and gently upon the earth we live and leaving as small a footprint as possible, being an advocate and practitioner of gentle parenting, offering life enriching services, and movement exploration. I enjoy combining, offering and sharing the benefits of Thai Bodywork, Reiki, Yoga, Breathwork, The Access Bars® and Meditation to my clients, friends and family. I am happy to offer my services to you, as well.
