I grew up as a classical musician, vocal artist, and performer. I received a scholarship from The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts and graduated in 2007. I have been a mover and yogi since my time in NYC and officially gained my RYT 200 certification in spring of 2019. I continue my yoga & therapy education toward her 300HR with courses that include: somatic therapy, yoga nidra, mindfulness meditation, trauma-informed training, and most recently a masterclass on the vagus nerve. My approach to my teaching comes from a somatic and therapeutic lens; I identify my coaching and practice as "embodiment" work. We acknowledge the bodies intelligence and incorporate it into the work.

 

Soon after becoming YTT, I  started teaching yoga publicly and privately. I have taught/teach at Asheville Yoga Center, West Asheville Yoga, Ocracoke Island Yoga, and I have various private clients and accounts with corporations. I regularly collaborate with Many Moons Counseling to offer somatic workshop experiences as well as various sound/movement offerings.

I am also a sound practitioner with a classical and vocal background. I use traditional over tone-emitting instruments as well as my voice and cello in this work.

My unique use of cello adds another lush layer to the soundscapes I create for this therapeutic experience.

In my sound meditation work, I use my classical background as well as sound teachings from the Himalayan Sound Academy, Alexandre Tannous, Randall McClellan, and Acutonis via DahVid Weiss. I regularly facilitate sound meditations for the public, private groups, and corporate sessions both in person and virtually.

For virtual experiences I will soon be using a binaural microphone so participants get the sound experience as if they're in the room.

You can read more about this technology here. 

As an embodiment coach, I supports clients in gentle yet profound process. I incorporate teachings of yoga, somatic intelligence, mindful living, sound work, trauma-informed training, journaling, and intuition to create a supportive and loving container for each individual.

This work is about guiding clients toward self-empowerment through connecting to the body and mindfully inviting the whole being back home to "their nature".

I share all of my work through private sessions, workshops, festivals, art gatherings, and yoga studios/classes.
