I am an avid runner who discovered the many benefits of a yoga asana practice in 1999 while living in Belgium. I first learned Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) in 1996 as a graduate student in counseling psychology. I lived in Hong Kong for four and a half years where I deepened my yoga and meditation practice and became a certified Integral Hatha Yoga teacher. As a 500-RYT, I am also trained in teen yoga, raja yoga, yin yoga, yoga for stress management and therapeutic gentle yoga for special populations. Much of my teaching focus is on relaxation techniques, stress management and emotional well-being.
I've taught teens and adults privately, at studios and schools in Belgium, Hong Kong and the United States and at the Consulate in Hong Kong. I've led mindfulness courses with educators and parents and presented workshops in schools and international education conferences on the benefits of mindful education and stress management. Currently, I am a school counselor and teach yoga and mindfulness at The International School of Brussels.
