Yoga Instructor - Reiki Master

MY STORY: 

" I share my story in hopes that it will give others strength and inspiration...

I found yoga (or I should say yoga found me), after a chronic spinal/neck injury. Once I took my first heated Power Vinyasa Yoga class, I was hooked! Previously, the chiropractor visits were necessary and many, then after establishing a regular yoga practice, I said good-bye to my chiropractor. I completed my 200-hour certification for Ashtanga-based Vinyasa in 2011 and my 500-hour certification for Hatha Yoga in 2013.  

 I was fortunate enough fall into Yoga Studio Management. I met my charismatic (future) husband while doing yoga. We got married, opened a yoga studio of our own (Yoga Aura), and had a beautiful baby girl, all within a year of each other. It was challenging beyond belief, but we kept looking forward. Not too long after this, my hard-working husband had a sudden heart attack and he was gone from this Earth-plane. I continued on my own as owner and operator of the Yoga Aura for many years, and closed the studio in due time. Weekly, I continue to teach group classes and conduct Private Yoga Instruction & Meditation, and Reiki

sessions.

Grief Healing and Coaching is a beautiful passion of mine.  

I have personally worked through grief, depression, single mom-hood, sole proprietorship of a successful business and the adventures that come with all of it. The healing tools of Yoga, Meditation and Reiki, have produced transformational miracles. I am blessed and honored to be able to serve others with this beautiful combination of healing methodology. Health and happiness is one's birthright."
