Although I had practiced yoga for 17 years in 2013, it wasn’t until I resigned from a job that was holding me back on many levels and began teaching yoga that I realized the full potency of my practice. The ensuing space allowed me the time and focus to align with my own power and essence in a way that I never had before, and to make this the most extraordinary time of my life. My husband, Michael, and I made a leap of faith and moved from East Hampton, NY to Vashon Island, WA, a beautiful, natural oasis in the Pacific Northwest, where we are building our simple, modern, dream home and studio. Yoga has allowed me to live my dream life!
Now it is my honor to guide others, particularly 50+ women, in connecting with the vision of their most exceptional life. Opening our inner space can facilitate each of us in connecting more fully with what allows us to live the life we are meant to live. I've often been struck by how the concept of 'letting go of what no longer serves' applies to both our inner (mind/body) and home space, and one way I particular enjoy helping others is by partnering with professional home organizers and interior designers to assist in achieving that sense of spaciousness. A home that feels like a serene oasis supports space for growth on all levels.
As a former librarian and avid follower of personal growth books and podcasts, I also love to recommend titles that I believe may help others in achieving their goals and desires.
I have been teaching yoga since 2013. I also had a home organizing business for three years. By creating spaciousness in our mind and body through breath and mind/body awareness, we can create spaciousness that aligns our inner and outer worlds. I love what Colleen Saidman Yee says in her 2015 book, Yoga for Life:
"Yoga is about the search for space, physically and are already home, we just don't know it."
I received my 200-hour yoga teacher certification at KamaDeva Yoga in East Hampton, NY, studying with Jessica Bellofatto and Lois Nesbit.
