I am a traveler, yogi, circus performer, poet, tarot card reader, and physical performance coach.
Collectively, I call what I do "Athletic Arts Coaching." I describe an athletic art as a creative activity in which a person uses their physical body to express their soul's essence. The purpose of athletic arts is to achieve a deeper connection with, and understanding of oneself and the natural world. I believe the human body is the bridge that connects the spiritual and the material worlds; so by making our bodies stronger & enhancing our physical abilities, we can connect more deeply to our spiritual selves & the natural world in which we live.
My coaching methods are derived from yoga & other holistic therapies, circus arts, and professional strength & conditioning techniques. I work people from all walks of life and at all levels of physical ability, all you need is a dream & the will to achieve it.
I have experience in working with beginners, rehabilitation, athletic performance, older adults, and pre/post natal.
I teach worldwide, but my home base is Mt. Baldy Yoga Loft. I opened this center near my home in June 2013 because I wanted to create an opportunity for people to practice their passions in a unique & natural environment. I have been living in Mt. Baldy for a year and a half and I find that being surrounded by purely wild nature inspires and re-energizes me. The center is located in the heart of Mt. Baldy Village at 4000ft elevation and is surrounded by trees & wildlife. I teach yoga & meditation classes, offer coaching for circus arts, do private yoga, reiki, & spiritual counseling, and host specialty workshops and events in various holistic health & wellness topics. Overnight retreats are coming soon!
I also teach aerial circus arts (and perform!) at Pilates Studio M in Claremont CA, and I have weekly classes at Green Tara Yoga Studio in Upland CA.
