Hey yogi friends!
I'm an ex-pat New Yorker with a 35+ year intuitive yoga practice that stems back to my early childhood when yoga was fairly new to the US but deeply embedded in my soul's memory.
Prior to dedicating my life to holistic health & well being, I held two dynamic careers in entertainment (as an author & performer in music, theater, film) and education (primary-adult EFL & EFL teaching for Special Purposes and Executives).
My spiritual journey began in 1999 with a quest for self-healing and an inner cry for a total lifestyle makeover. That's when Reiki came into my life and I studied to heal myself and later to become a Reiki Master so I could help others learn and heal and grow, too.
After a 3-year period of self-healing and (nearly complete) lifestyle adjustment aligned to a higher vision for myself and my life, the Universe directed me to my partner, Stipe, and, only a few months later, to my first yoga TTC. I was profoundly aware that I had found the missing ingredients that were needed to make the total life shift 100% and my partner was on board for the journey.
In June 2004, 9 months after meeting my husband and freshly graduated from my first 200-hour teacher training course, our retreat center - Suncokret (Sunflower) Body and Soul Retreat on Hvar Island - was born.
Over these past 10 years, I have been blessed to further my self-empowerment studies and toolkit to include Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, the Integrated Approach to Yoga Therapy, as well as Bioenergy Therapy and Quantum Touch Healing.
These studies and spiritually-guided pathway have helped me to heal and empower myself to live a life of greater alignment, integrity and purpose; and I gladly share these pearls of wisdom and light - the empowered, visionary lifestyle - with others in need of a guide, a coach, a friend, a safe shelter in which to nourish the body, mind, heart and soul. You are most welcome!
