My Story

I have always believed in living a holistic, healthy, and balanced life. I credit these healthful habits for supporting me in all aspects of my life.

I grew up in my mother’s dance studio. In many ways the arts not only empowered my life, but transformed my life. I discovered that I could become anything that I imagined and with hard work I realized my dreams.

As my experience with dance and the performing arts evolved, I realized that movement can be a form of spirituality, transformation, and somatic therapy. Through the practices of hatha yoga and meditation, I was able to develop a deeper understanding of what spirituality means to me and gain insight that transformed my entire life. These experiences and epiphanies inspired me to develop my current programs that incorporate the healing aspects of Eastern and Western science with the soulful joy of the arts. It is my pleasure and honor to be instrumental in helping my clients create a life full of love, peace, and prosperity.
