I'm so glad you're here...
After a complex and challenging journey through body breakdown...
I learned (the hard way!) how precious it is to reclaim embodied practice with deepened understanding of bodymind science, humble reverence to ancient teachings & renewed childlike wonder.
Movement is medicine for the body, mind & soul & Yoga a path of living wisdom in our lives.
I truly believe that the potency of embodied practice has the power to change the world.
I can't wait to share some of the ways we're learning to make it even better.
We're all in this together.
