I first experienced the power of massage through a personal injury. It was then I realized that I would need, not want, a massage often to upkeep and maintain the rough wear and tear I put on my body daily. I find that everything is better after giving and receiving a massage!  I entered into the Massage Therapy and Bodywork field not only because of the incredible results I yielded from it, but because I found my passion is in sharing wellness with others. I also found that with every new thing I learned about the body, I was fascinated and wanted to learn even more about it! I will be a student for life, especially when it comes to health, wellness, and the human body. Massage is a gift that keeps on giving! Health is the pinnacle of wealth, & this can not be overstated. There are so many possible routes to take for health, and massage should be incorporated into your daily life on your path to health. Along with massage, I am incredibly passionate about the other routes of health: nutrition, exercise, mental health, and sleep. Everyday is a wonderful day to start your journey to wellness. Come on in to start your path to what a Grand Rising Wellness looks like for you. At the very least, I know massage will look good on you!

My deepest passion from the time I was young has always been the health & well being of myself aswell as my fellow humans. I experienced the powerful effects holistic therapy can bring. Everyone will eventually and sometimes often, experience the effects of poor nutrition, stress, poor posture, faulty body mechanics, injury, sitting too long & much more in the body on a daily basis. This is why I became a Functional Health Coach (CHEK) & Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), so I can help people find the resolution to the tornado life spins towards us. Using my soul, heart, mind and hands, I try to aid to clients to relax, grow and bring them back to a world where life is enjoyable again. If you're looking for a refreshed breath & would like to begin appreciating the little things again instead of being in pain & chronically frazzled, I can help.

 

After almost having to give up sports due to shin splints. Massage saved me! Discovering the potent effects massage has on injuries, propelled me to fall in love with massage, causing me to take the steps towards becoming an LMT. Helping people get back to their normal life is so exciting to me! This is why I fell in love with injury treatment. I want to help you get rid of nagging pain so you can enjoy life pain free! Come book coaching that will change your life FOR GOOD or treatment massage with me so we can get to the bottom of this tissue - (; ! Fair warning, it may hurt during the process (if you are looking for deep work) but the calm does comes after the storm, or you know, the session.

After receiving the shocking news in 2012, of Stage 2 HER 2 NEU/ER/PR positive breast cancer, I decided the diagnosis would be the catalyst for the biggest transformation of my life.  I turned what could have been a huge setback into an awesome comeback. Through this journey, I discovered that we have more control of our health than we are often led to believe.

I am so glad you are here.  I have been waiting to meet you. I know what you are going through and how you might be feeling.  You see, not so long ago I was in your shoes - scared, frustrated, and not sure where to turn.  Thankfully, I had a deep inner gnawing and desire to figure out how and why my illness happened.  I knew there was more to the story and thankfully my curiosity and perseverance brought me to where I am today. It is my wish that you too, can experience your own healing, and if you will allow, I would love to walk this journey with you.

Yoga is my rock in this life—forever bringing me back into contact with the intelligence of my body rooted in softness, nurturing my nervous system and releasing my mind from confusion, worry and doubt. When I met my main teacher Jean Mazzei in 2008, my strong physical yoga practice (mainly used for exercise and dance conditioning) was transformed by an unexpected embrace of yoga’s subtleties—pranayama (better known these days as breathwork), mudra, kriya, mantra, philosophy and meditation.

After completing my 200 and 500-hour level teaching certifications with Jean in the San Francisco Bay Area and Baja, Mexico,

life delivered me to the humble beginnings of my teaching career in Portland, Oregon in 2012.

 

From 2014-2020, I witnessed my teaching career expand rapidly, and was privileged to:

• co-facilitate women's yoga retreats on Oahu, Hawaii 

• co-found a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program in Bali

• co-lead 6 200-hour Yoga teacher Trainings in Bali—teaching Yin Yoga, Yoga Philosophy, Subtle Energetics + Mantra

• guest teach Yoga Philosophy 

• guest teach Yoga Philosophy and Mantra in Om Yoga School’s 200-hour teacher training in Yunguilla, Ecuador

• lead various private + public kirtans & workshops

During the pandemic, teaching took a backseat and I went headlong into studying again. I fell in love with the teachings of yoga + the somatic experience through Suniti Dernovsek, and continue to receive the nourishment of being called back into fluid, intelligent movement and self-inquiry. Most recently I’ve been absorbing the teachings + nurturing frequencies of Alana Mitnick and Emmie Rae, who have reminded me to soften my edges and drop into the earth via deep rest practices.

 

In this iteration of my teaching, I'm interested in guiding my students into moving slower + with more intention, cultivating inner quiet as well as joy, and dropping into/trusting the support that is ever-present-- waiting for us to turn our cup upright to receive it.

Find your Fire ~ Ignite your Power ~ Love your Self


I believe that yoga is for every body and that you do yoga because you aren't flexible! That yoga is also intimidating, but it shouldn't be.

I believe that yoga is more than just an exercise, it is a way of life. It is a place to stop all of the "doing" that we do all day long. To give yourself a break from all of the thinking.

I believe in the ancient practice and philosophy of yoga. That the definition of yoga is to still the fluctuations of the mind. Not to improve your backside. (Although, if that happens... bonus!)

I believe in the power of essential oils. I also believe your power resides within you. And you can reclaim it through yoga and essential oils. (Pssst... they're more than just a pretty smell.)

I believe that the most important relationship you will ever have is the one you have with your Self. So, get to know your Self.
Nurture your relationship with your Self. Reconnect with your Self.
It is time.
It is time to find your fire, to ignite your power, and to truly love your Self.

We cant wait to add more!
