I began my path with health and fitness 20 years ago as a group exercise instructor, personal trainer, pilates instructor, and wellness coach. Having worked with many groups and individuals in Boston, NYC, DC, and Hawaii, my experience allowed me to regularly teach and train people from all walks of life. As a result, it has lead me to understand the variety of physical and emotional needs that each individual has.
My journey with Yoga began while attending a Core Integration Class taught by Jill Miller in 2004. My mind and body experienced an awakening it had never felt before. By the end of her class my entire body was rhythmically beating with my heart beat. The following year I had an intense life changing experience after attending a 10 day Vipassana. It was then I knew my calling. A few months later I participated in a one month journey to complete my 200 hr yoga teacher training at 7 Centers in Sedona, AZ and shortly after that a Living Foods Lifestyle® Two Week Certification Program with the Ann Wigmore Institute in Puerto Rico. Eventually I left my fitness and group exercise management positions to start my own company Physical Awakening.
In 2007, on a summer trip to Ojai, California, my daughter, Bella Luna was conceived, I had a home birth which transformed my life and gave birth to expanding my knowledge on maternity and "green" living. My inspiration led me to support families where I founded two additional companies: and International Maternity Institute. Since becoming a mother, I have learned so much and am grateful. It has been a journey of joy, embracing forgiveness, self-acceptance and balance.
I have overcome countless challenges throughout my life; using each as stepping stones to form the person I am today. Though it’s impossible to possibly define me,
“mompreneur yogini, holistic lifestyle, health and business coach” comes close.
During the time I was a single mom to two small children, I successfully launched
multiple companies helping others to grow and succeed – all while maintaining my health, sanity, and love for life.
These companies include:
International Maternity and Parenting Institute (IMPI), Founder and CEO
Association of Professional Sleep Consultants (APSC), Founder
Business Sanctuary, Founder
International Academy of Baby Planner Professionals (IABPP)
Physical Awakening, Holistic Lifestyle and Health Services
My work allows me to combine my business and holistic lifestyle coaching expertise to support people from all walks of life.
Most recently, having a deep commitment and passion for a life of simplicity and personal development, I recently completed a Somatic Yoga Training with the Yoga Garden in San Anselmo, CA, 300 hr Advanced Yoga Certification Purusha Yoga in SF, California, and a ChakraDance training from Australia.
I offer group classes, workshop, retreats s in the comfort of your home,
