I have been practicing the healing arts of yoga, meditation, ritual and shamanism for two decades, and have pursued dance, writing and visual art for all my life. Thus my group events, workshops, retreats and private sessions are a creative blend of these ancient cosmologies.
At the tender age of three, dressed like a honeybee, I danced in a beautiful fairy-tale show at a large theatre. Since then I wanted to pursue a formal dancing career.
Instead, Life became my stage. What a playground!
I am a weaver of wisdom traditions and ferocious in my dedication to seize the present moment.
Living life as it comes, opens me up to an ongoing learning and changing.
I completed multiple yoga-training intensives with Sarah Powers, Saul David Raye, Mark Whitwell, Cindy Lee, Shari Friedrichsen, Rod Stryker, Eric Shiffman and Sean Corn.
My first yoga teacher training lasted five years, under the guidance of compassionate and knowledgeable yoga teacher, Lee Atwell, whose teachings have been influenced by her guru, Baba Hari Dass.
In the spring of 2007, I met my most inspirational teacher, Shiva Rea. She saw my shakti and I started an ongoing apprenticeship with her Global School Of Living Yoga.
I use authentic presence, compassion, acceptance, curiosity, love, playfulness, instinct, intuitions, breath work, trauma-informed therapy, yoga, meditation, mantras, shamanic journeys, sound healing, writing, singing, poetry and dancing to feel and connect with the body, mind and heart of each student.
This alchemy allows me to support the healing, growth and transformation of those who come to me and want to reconnect with their True Self.
Meditation & Shamanic Background
The Sacred Path of the Warrior in the Shambhala Tradition, as taught by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, has been the core foundation of my meditation practice for many years. Eventually my approach to meditation shifted in deep ways after exploring the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda and receiving direct transmission of The Radiance Sutras by Dr. Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine.
I completed a five-year shamanic study with the Sundust Oracle Institute under the masterful guidance of medicine woman, Char Sundust.
I have continued learning about intuitive development, oracles, energy clearing, soul retrieval, ancestral work and shamanic journeys with renowned teachers, Sandra Ingerman and Christina Pratt.
In the last 10 years, I have embarked upon a deep healing journey into the ancient path of plants medicine.
Currently apprenticing under the guidance of Shipibo master curandero Ricardo Amaringo.
Renowned Andean Indigenous Curanderors Vilma And Wilson Pinedo have initiated me to powerful Q’ero teachings during my several trips to the Valle Sagrada of Peru’.
I have completed a professional training called Compassionate Inquiry, and I am certified to lead CI sessions with others. This is a psychotherapeutic approach created by Dr. Gabor Maté.
