E-RYT500 Yoga Instructor, Yoga Therapist, Massage Therapist, Reiki Master, Vedic Astrologer
My focus as an instructor and therapist is to facilitate others in their process of healing/wholeness. I have been teaching yoga and have been a massage therapist since 1996. I work with individuals privately and also teach public classes in West Bloomfield and Farmington Hills, MI. I teach workshops on yoga therapy and experiential anatomy. I have created a mentoring program for yoga teachers. I specialize in teaching my students and clients how to become aware of compensations in their body and we work together to create more freedom in movement and breath. I meet each individual where they are and take into account their body type, age, emotions, psyche, and past experiences.
I have been most influenced by my studies with Arthur Kilmurray, Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen and Doug Keller. I incorporate body/mind awareness into my teaching as well as mindful movement similar to Body Mind Centering, Feldenkrais or Continuum Movement. I use fluid and dynamic movement, fascial fitness and hydration. I incorporate props such as foam rollers, various balls, blocks, straps, bolsters and blankets. I believe a variety of movement done with awareness is the path to wholeness.
I host workshops in the Farmington Hills area with highly qualified and experienced teachers like Doug Keller, Arthur Kilmurray, Caryn McHose, Carrie Gaynor.
I continue my education extensively each year with my teachers as well as research and home study. I am continuously evolving as a teacher and human.
