I first encountered yoga while attending school for Nursing at Simmons College. I was instantly drawn to its ability to hold space and create stillness during such a hectic time in my life. Since then, my yoga practice has become my most loyal and compassionate friend, shining brightest during the darkest and craziest of times.
After earning my Bachelors Degree in Nursing and obtaining a job in the Cardiac Surgery ICU at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, I was inspired to expand my passion and expertise beyond western medicine. A colleague introduced me to Reiki and I was blown away by its ability to enable the relaxation response in the human body. Fascinated by the practice, I later became certified as a Level II Reiki Practitioner. Reiki allows me to interact with my clients on an emotional, physical and spiritual level, creating a holistic practice of healing that comes full circle.
While continuing my career in nursing, I took my love for Yoga to a new level through completing a 200-hour training with the New School of Yogic Arts. Deeply influenced by my teachers and experiences as a nurse and yogi, I aim to bring a sense of energetic empowerment to my classes and clients as a registered yoga teacher. I have found that yoga, reiki, and meditation can come into and complement the places that Western medicine does not yet touch.
My rich knowledge of human anatomy coupled with my clinical experience enable me to provide unique custom programs to meet clients exactly where they stand, illuminating existing strengths and gifts to overcome limitations, promote healing and encourage self awareness. Through discerning asana, reflective meditation and breathing practices I believe we can not only heal the physical body, but the mind and the soul as well.
